Re: Optivisor Binocular Magnifier


I need +2.0 readers normally for close work, so my Optivisor is also +2.0, and in concert, they make for much higher magnification.

This is not a "one size fits all" scenario.
The best thing to do is visit a shop that sells things like "Opti-visor" and try them out and see what "looks" comfortable.
Higher magnification tends to force your head closer to the work to remain in focus.
ANd things will change depending upon your unaided vision situation. I wear tri-focals normally and have 2 different Opti-Visors. One at 5x for bench tasks, and a 4x for work on the layout.
