Aspheric Hand-held Magnifiers
An Aspheric lens is created with steeper curves which allow for higher magnification with less distortion. Eschenbach aspheric lenses have an ergonomic handle design that makes them comfortable to hold. They are specially calculated to provide distortion-free viewing, and our lenses are positioned so they are easily suitable for right AND left handed users.
Like other lenses for vision correction, aspheric lenses can be categorized as convex or concave. Convex aspheric curvatures are used in many presbyopic vari-focal lenses to increase the optical power over part of the lens, aiding in near tasks such as reading.
Eschenbach aspheric lenses are PXM lightweight lenses manufactured with cera-tec coating to make the lenses glass-hard to prevent less scratches, contributing to a longer life of the product. The Aspheric series contains a wide range of magnification: 2.8x, 3x, 3.5x, 4x, 5x, and 6x.
Aspheric hand-held magnifiers are excellent for short term spotting tasks, such as reading prescriptions on medicine bottles, reading menus, maps, labels, and thermostats.
