I was forever putting on and taking off readers in the car to read my iPhone GPS. Now I just flip down the readers to see the directions. It takes a time or two to get used to the set up but then it works wonderfully.
I checked the reviews before I bought this, as the price seemed way too good to be true... And, as another reviewer noted, the image is only clear in the very middle of the lens - but I'm a Geologist and used to using hand lenses and other optical instruments, I know that that is how it is, especially for such high magnification - what you gain in magnification in a small lens like this, you lose in overall extent of view - a powerful punch is contained in a small area, so the size of that view is small. I don't mind that a bit, as I LOVE having such powerful magnification right in my hand! I appreciated the warnings from the other reviewers, so I knew exactly what I'd be getting - and it's worth the small view to get such a great magnification. I hope you aren't detracted from getting this great lens based on what others wrote - this is well worth the money!!! PS - I got 2, one for me and one for a friend who also loves rocks & fossils, and I'll get going back for a couple more for extras for both of us! Enjoy!!!
