Buyers should know in advance that the higher the magnification, the closer you need to be to whatever you are looking at. These are not made for distance magnifying. This is like a double jeweler's loupe and I found it worked better for me looking through it "one-eyed" rather than trying to focus on the item through both lenses at once.
There are other... much more expensive... binocular loupes used by doctors and dentists where your working distance can be from several inches to almost arm's length with high magnification.

20X Magnifying Glass with LED Light for Jewel/ Watch Repair, its a tool not am eye glass for the vision impaired.
No instruction enclosed, but do you really need an instruction to put on your eyeglass ?
Light weight, mostly plastic, nicely weighted flip up tension and LED light is nice. Probably not for eyeglass wearer, contact lens wearer or those blessed with 20/20 vision will have no problem with focusing. I usually took off my glasses when I need such high magnification. So its not a big deal.
Yes, there are other glasses that can do more and better, but not a $8.
For those who need high mag works once in a while, these are great. But for professional that used them everyday....check the price.
You really get what you paid for. I goiught two pairs, one oft them arrived with a defective LED.
Hope this helps

I bought these primarily because of the price. I needed a was to see details in coins and other collection items and it doubles well with seeing splinters in skin and just simply seeing things at a magnification that you never have before. There is a light on both eyepieces that works very well and can be pointed wherever needed. One possible drawback is the weight of the eyepiece units in relation to the frame and the ability to stay on my head if I tilt my head downward a bit. It seems a bit end/top heavy but again, not being a jeweler, I will guess that this aspect is normal for what it does and is needed for.

How accurate was the sizing? It is sized for proper fit on most heads (people).
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be of good quality for household use. I am not a jeweler and cannot compare to precision instruments.
I bought the glasses to make it easier to seeing the pins on my wife's watches. I have been sizing both or our watches for a least 5 years, and sizing a ladies watch can be very challenging. The glasses do a great job of magnifying the pins, and the lights really make the job a cinch.
The lenses may cause the glasses to slide down on your nose, but bending the ear loops will solve this issue. I really should have purchased a pair of these years ago.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Just like it
How accurate was the sizing? Right on the money
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality for the price
I bought this to help with watch repair - more battery changing. However, it's really more of a very fine intricate work lens. Let's put it this way, it would be great for pulling that splinter out with tweezers! All joking aside, they flip up and have lights that really do work and help. They are a little delicate in that the lenses are heavy for the frame. Just overkill for what I needed but am sure I will use them for something around the house!
Got these to use when I do my "micro" carving and painting. Also great for splinters, checking jewelry,coins, or anything small that you need to see. I like that you can flip either lens up, using only one at a time. Better than having to take on and off repeatedly. (like my reading glasses!) And the added bonus of a light on each lens is awesome too.
the pic is misleading, there is only one set of glasses and the other is a mini microscope. the glasses have to be adjusted to be able to focus on the object. the micro scope is neat but a pain to use on any thing that is not flat.
