I read the product description and reviews, so I knew that this magnifier must be held away from the page - however, was disappointed in the descriptions I found online and provided with the product, as none seemed to give a height or height range for best viewing - but perhaps that varies with the person... I got this for viewing cross-stitch designs while I'm stitching, as the symbols can sometimes be hard to distinguish. I also got a stand with magnets for holding the designs in place, and wanted this magnifier to use with it - I will need to get some magnetized spacers of some sort or an arm for holding this on the stand at the best distance from the design for me - so, I guess I'll need to get a bit creative with that, but not a big deal, as this will provide the magnification I need!!! I'm very much looking forward to get that all set up for my use.
I am 68 years old and find myself having difficulty reading text that is anything less than 10 point. My Sparco Rectangular Handheld Magnifier comes in handy to make sure I am correctly reading the price of an item or information concerning a product that I am considering purchasing. It is a sturdy, well-made magnifier. I recommend it.
