Magnifying glasses guide

In old age, more and more people complain of increasing visual impairment. Especially the reading of small fonts is sometimes a challenge. Anyone who does not need reading glasses or who does not have the strength of reading glasses will gladly use a magnifying glass to read smaller scripts. But also to look at minerals, insects, stamps and other small and detailed collectibles, a magnifying glass is ideal. But how does a magnifying glass work? Which forms of magnifiers are there and what are they suitable for? And how do you handle a magnifying glass properly?

The operation of the magnifying glass

Since the first century AD, the magnification effect caused by water has been known. However, it took another 1000 years to the eleventh century for the Arabic scholar Alhazen to use this knowledge to develop an optical device that would allow things to be magnified. So you used first polished stones to increase the size of letters in order to read better. These days you can already learn how to be in middle school magnifiers work exactly. Namely, it is a classic magnifying glass usually a converging lens with a small focal length. The focal length is the distance from the object that the magnifying glass must have in order to make it sharp. When looking through the magnifying glass, objects therefore appear enlarged, because on the one hand, the image is brought closer to the eye and, on the other hand, enlarged in itself. This effect is also used on eyeglasses, microscopes and other optical devices. Here, as with the simple magnifying glass also lenses with different focal lengths use, by the interaction of an enormous magnification can be achieved.

What forms of magnifying glasses are there and what can they be used for?

The most classical of all forms of application is the Reading Magnifier, These are now available in different versions. In the past this was mainly the style of a magnifying glass, which is attached to a style. However, this form of reading magnifier is quite impractical, as it only enlarges a small image and has to be constantly moved. Much more suitable are large rectangular ones magnifiers with which the entire text can be enlarged at once. So you can easily read newspapers or small-written books and does not have to constantly handle the magnifying glass. Good products have proved here the company Goldiflora Optics.
Another type of application is the magnifying glass in collector’s hands. To collect stamps you need a magnifying glass with a very high magnification, as the stamps themselves are very small. Particularly suitable here are either round table or stand magnifiers, as they can be placed easily on the stamp without damaging them. Even a fixed magnifying glass with a stand device can be used for this purpose.
For a detailed examination of, for example, minerals or works of art, the monocell has proven itself. This can be pinched by the wearer in one eye, like a monocle. Through the closing of the other eye, the magnifying glass now allows everything to be perceived to be magnified and works of art can be viewed, fine-tuning made, and movements assembled.
But even on the move, a magnifying glass can be used. For this special pocket loupes were developed. These are usually quite small and can be stored in a retractable case. So they are well protected from scratches and can be used quickly on the go.

How do you use and maintain a magnifier professionally?

As with all glass objects, the magnifying glass should be treated as carefully as possible. Contact with sharp stones and metal should be avoided for this reason. Even turning off the careless or throwing careless can damage the magnifying glass and cause scratches on the lens. Thus, caution and a careful handling of the magnifying glass is the top priority. The application of the magnifying glass itself is not difficult. To magnify an object, it must be held in front of the lens at the distance of the focal length. This can be adjusted magnifiers best by trying to identify, whereas at fixed magnifiers already given. Caution should be exercised when using the loupe in the open air and in sunlight. Through the lens, the sun’s rays are amplified and concentrated on one point. This can easily cause painful burns and quickly ignite paper.
