What is a magnifying glass?
A magnifying glass is a reading aid for people with a visual impairment. With
a magnifying glass, you can read text and view photos with magnification. This
helps you to read more easily. Optelec offers a wide range of magnifying glasses
that make reading easier, at home, in the office and on the go.

photographs more easily. A stand magnifying glass is useful if you want to read
longer passages of text or if you find it difficult to hold a magnifying glass.
