One thing I discovered is old guys can also use a pair of 350s for
that really tiny stuff you have to work on. The focal length is far
shorter than comfortable reading distance but it really helps if you
are doing work on tiny stuff.

What are 350s?
I did notice, before I was 50 or maybe also afterwards a little bit,
that there was no point in using a magnifying glass, because
everything I could see with it I could see without it. That doesn't
seem right, so maybe I mean at least in terms of repairing things.
That isn't true anymore, and a magnifying glass doesn't always help.
So what are 350s? :-)
I did buy, at a hamfest (though I have rarely seen them there). a lens
that clips on the temple? arm of one's glasses and stands in front of

I bought a cheap jeweler's loupe too, plastic case with plastic lens,
but the plastic is not the problem. I haven['t gotten used to holding
it in with my cheek and my forehead. It's hard and even then it falls

I like Zenni Optical. Great quality and dirt cheap.
You should be getting an eye exam every couple of years anyway, so why
not get prescription poly carb safety lenses?
Well, if they weren't reading glasses, if I played ball with them, I
guess I'd want plastic, but almost all my reading is done when I'm
alone, and done very quietly.
Plus I need several pairs, one for each floor, one or two for the car,
2 for the suitcase. My mother only had one pair and I was always
going upstairs or downstairs for her to get her glasses. That's not
