I'm increasingly dependent on my magnifier visor
when working on small items or even reading small type.
It works fine with eyeglasses.
Hands free and takes no table space.
I got the $5 plastic ones.
Someday I'll get the better ones like my dentist.

Tensor ought to still make a large round magnifier
with a circular fluorescent lamp
on a desk-lamp style stand.
I forgot the brand, but a friend has one that's "one louder":
a rectangular lens with a good flat field of view
and 2 compact fluorescent lamps: one on each side
for shadowless viewing.
