Thread: Loupe/visor recommendation

  1. #1

    Default Loupe/visor recommendation

    Well, I've finally admitted it my eyes have been beat by the diabetes and I canít see **** anymore.

    I'm gearing up with bifocals and magnifiers and all the old fart stuff. Can you please provide a loupe/visor recommendation and magnification.


    I know some are going to say better lighting. I've got that taken care of!

    I just use a cheap ten-dollar one that I got on Amazon. It works really well for now and the LED light is actually helpful in addition to the lighting I have.

    Welcome to the forum ! Glad to have you aboard.
    I use a magnifier that clips to the brim of my hat. You flip it down to use it, then flip it back up to the bottom of the brim when not in use. It goes in front of both eyes, and sits out about 3" in front of your face. You don't have to take off your regular glasses or Polaroids to use it.
    They run about $12.00 in the fly shop. Get 2. You'll use them in the house too.
