This is a Fresnel lens magnifier, which is very different from regular lenses. It has "ridges" in the plastic, which are often mistaken for being the material for a cheap lens. It is actually a clever way to fuse dozen of little lenses together in concentric circles, thereby allowing a much thinner sheet to have the same magnification as a thicker, solid, one piece lens. Fresnel lenses, invented by Augustin-Jean Fresnel, have a Wikkipedia entry! Click to read.

    it is a good idea, but...
    this item is too flimsy. Feels like the legs will break when folding them by its two thin springs.  The lights wouldn't stay on, though nice and bright when they did work - poor connection to the on/of switch and wouldn't stay on OR off.  The battery cover didn't fit and wouldn't stay on. Enough said. Sorry to have to return it - it sounded perfect!

    Did not like at all.
    I thought this was really cheap.  It does not light well and it does not work well.  The "magnifier" is cheap plastic, worse than a kid's toy.  It was a low price so I should have realized that it could not be good. Good small round magnifiers run $5-$10 so I thought this one would at least be useable for $20.00.  I definitely would not recommend this to anyone.

    Lighted magnifier with folding legs
    Not a good quality item.  I sent one to my mother and she had trouble with one set of legs closing repeatedly.   She did not feel the magnification was helpful at all.  I also bought one for my husband and he was also disappointed.  This might be fine for a person who has some vision difficulty and needs mild reading glasses, but not for those who have more difficulty with their vision and would need more strength. from DebSpecs: will refund/ replace

    folding legs lighted magnifyer
    I gave this item to an older person with diminishing eyesight.  He loves it.  It has helped him enjoy his daily paper & crossword puzzle. Well worth the price.
