Hello all, I hate to admit it, but my eyes just aren't what they used to be. I do alot of reading and most of my crafting is very detail oriented. Currently, I have been making miniatures with polymer clay, machine sewing, and lots of bead work (seed bead size.)
I recently had my annual eye exam---nothing unusual going on, just the normal effects of aging. The doctor adjusted my prescription a bit, and the new glasses help, but I'm looking for some kind of magnifying supplement to use along with my bifocals for the very fine detail work. I don't even know where to start. What do you all use as a visual aid? I'm thinking of some kind of device to clip onto my eyeglasses, as opposed to a tabletop type magnifier. What else is there? If anyone could share some ideas of what works for them, that will at least give me a direction to head.
Thanks so much for any suggestions!! Craft On!This message has been edited. Last edited by: pfr4,
I have magnifying glasses that clip over my trifocals. They work well for detailed work. I also have a lamp with a flip out magnifier. I don't like that as well since I have to keep my work under the magnifier - doesn't alow me to move around.

Thanks, KBlue, I think I'm going to go with the clip on magnifier, too. I agree about the lamp with the magnifier. I craft all over the place and being confined to a tabletop wouldn't work for me, either. Thanks for the input!
