Even if you can see pretty well, you can benefit from high power reading glasses when working on crafts or hobbies. I actually use low-powered readers at the computer, nothing at all most of the time and high-magnification readers when sewing or working on fine details of other craft projects.
You might think that high power reading glasses are for people with very poor close-up vision, and that’s one use for them. If you have trouble reading even with the best readers you can find at the supermarket or drugstore, you may need something stronger. If you choose not to use prescription reading glasses made just for you, high power reading glasses like the ones available on Amazon may do the job for you.
But I use these special high-magnification lenses when handling the fine details of sewing and embroidery. I’ve heard of others using them for making model ships or airplanes — to be sure the pieces exactly line up and that no glue residue is oozing out.
I’ve also heard of people using them when making jewelry, doing paper-cutting crafts and even when making intricate decorations for wedding cakes and other edible projects that are very important to them.
For people with fairly good vision, wearing high power reading glasses isn’t something you should do all the time. They can give you headaches and cause other vision problems when used for hours at a time, but when you want to see fine details that you can’t see any other way, these lenses are indispensable.
If you’re like me, your hobbies and craft projects are important to you, and you want to get them done right. That means you need to be able to see the smallest details with ease — and closer up than your normal vision or your regular glasses will allow.
That’s when high power reading glasses can come in handy.
