    I have an led light that has a magnifier included. For any tying I Also use a pair of 2.5 reading glasses as well as the magnifier. Makes any size fly easy to tie.

    My office/computer desk is next to my tying desk. The long arm of the lamp in the photo lets me swing the lamp over to the other desk when needed. I've moved since that photo was taken and the new desk isn't set up yet. When it is, the centered lamp will be a feature I'll retain.

    I intend to go to one of those quick, make while you wait eyeglasses place. I have a close-up prescription from my ophthalmologist, so I will have them make me some tying glasses that are exactly right for my eyes. That includes separate adjustments for each eye and correct inter-pupillary distance for my eyes. With regular diopter reading glasses you are going to pay $20 - $30 a pair. Two for $60 - $70 seems like a fair price for real glasses.
