I bought this magnifier after looking at various other devices and reading disappointment in the focal length. Looking at this device it seemed to be thought out from looking at the graphics and description. Thankfully I was right. The device comes with a case to hold the magnifier lenses and a cleaning cloth. It also has a elastic strap that can replace the traditional legs of the glasses. The LED light is bright AND adjustable to point more forward or downward. The lenses snap into the holder at one point in the swing and are more locked at other points. The lens holder can be adjusted closer or further from the face for better focal length. Lenses can also be tipped up if not needed at the moment.
Happy esthetician– happy pimple free clients

I’m an esthetician who needed to see closer and better when doing extractions. I may look silly with them on but I’m so happy that I purchased! Just what I needed
The clip release nub to change the glasses arms for the head band is super snug and will require quite a bit of pressure …

Couldn’t beat the price for these and I was quite surprised with the quality for said price. The different clip in lens are convenient, though the front slot in the case holding all the lenses is a bit tight and require a firm hand to pull whichever lens you put in that slot. The clip release nub to change the glasses arms for the head band is super snug and will require quite a bit of pressure to remove it. I took some 200 grit sandpaper to these nubs on both the headband and arms and can not interchange them quite nicely. I also love that there are 2 points of adjustment for the lens itself (one on the forehead where the lens/led part attaches to the head, and a second where the lens clips in itself). The led can also be adjusted angle wise slightly on it’s own. The nose piece is a bit uncomfy if you wear glasses and have it setup with the arms, once I put the headband option on it, that pressure is now on my forehead instead of the bridge of my nose and I can now wear them for hours. Very pleased with this purchase.
Great for lash artists!

These glasses are far better than the ones I ordered from a pro lash company. My order came on time and the glasses are so nice! I use these for applying lash extensions and I would highly recommend them to other lash artists!
Super impressed for the price, wished I’d had a pair of these years ago!

I was pretty skeptical that these wouldn’t be that good for the price, but I have to admit they perform much better than I anticipated. All the adjustments work very well together, the are very secure on the head, the LED light is bright and adjustable, and the view through the lenses is very good. I don’t think they would take abuse or heavy duty frequent use, but to have around the house for a few technical projects here and there they are perfect and I’ve had many projects over the years I’d would have loved to have these for. The only thing I’d like to see different would be for the lenses to be larger to provide a wider field of view, but that’s probably just because I’m new to these types of products. My guess is whenever I’m using them to work on something close up I’ll be focused on a very small part/area and the field of view will be more than adequate. It would also be nice if they had a lens with a higher magnification, but that may run into complications with working distance and having to hold the item too close to your eyes/lens to work on it in focus.
A pleasant surprise for the price

Honestly I was expecting junk for the price, but was pleasantly surprised. The lenses, which are plastic, are very clear and easy to use. As you might expect, they focus at different distances depending on power. Despite some reviews, I found mine stayed clipped in nicely with no sign of falling out. I have a large head and can use the ear pieces without much trouble, and the headband would be handy if I were in a situation with a lot of head movement. The LED is a bit dim but usably bright in a normal to darkened room; if trying to use in daylight or other bright ambient light (e.g. to light a recess), it is a bit dim with eyes adjusted to bright light. On the down side it is kind of dinky, as though made for children. The lenses should be bigger, the ear pieces large, the whole thing is just scaled a bit too small. However, it is fine for the occasional use I will make of it. I would not get it (if you are normal sized) to use for hours a day. But overall, reasonably well built, does what I needed, a pleasant surprise for the price.
Much higher quality than you’d think for the price you’re paying. These are great!

For the price, you cannot beat this! After trying it out, I immediately purchased a 2nd for my workplace so that I don’t need to carry it back and forth.

This is a really well designed magnifier. You can either use the ear rests to wear it like regular glasses, or they pop right off and you can use the included headband instead. You can also wear regular glasses under them without problems. Everything’s adjustable from the angle of the lenses to the lens distance to the LED light angle. The adjustable lens distance is especially nice so you can either magnify most of your field of view, or move them further away so you can also see normally around it. The lenses themselves are plastic but good quality (hardened) and you get five different ones in a little case. Those are also easy to pop in and out. It’s just well designed overall.
Just what I needed… cheap enough and works fine.

For the price, I think it’s worth the 5 stars. Now, I’ve only had it 30 minutes, so if it breaks the first time, I’ll update my review. It’s relatively easy to figure out – put the included batteries in the device (near the brow) and snap in the included lens of your choice (5 to choose from), and voila! I started with the heaviest magnification, and I could only see about 10″ away, maybe not that much. The lighter magnification gave me a longer field of vision. That’s ok – for what I’ll be using it, it will be just dandy. I’ve attached some photos – the instructions which may answer some questions about the product; the products with a ruler (the lenses are about 3-3/4″ wide, and the headpiece is about 5″ wide); a top and belly view of the headpiece as well as a piece of the temple/sides showing how you remove the temple/side and plug in the strap for the headband.

I use this to work on my Gunpla (plastic models) and it has saved my eyes! The light, lens and entire assembly can tilt for the best angle. The light is bright while a bit harsh and blue it gets the job done. I wouldn’t work on anything too color sensitive or light sensitive (pretty sure this is just a run of the mill LED but idk). It comes with both a head strap and eye glass bridges. The band isn’t big enough for my big hair and the bridges work but gets a bit irritating after 30 minutes of use. The lens come in a nice protective box and a micro fiber cloth is also included! So why not 5/5? I wish there was some width control to help on the bridges otherwise its super affordable, comfortable and practical.
