This is one of the most common statements in this business and I can’t tell you how many times I have heard this regarding our magnification products over the past 25+ years.
The perception is that if someone is wearing magnification for their work, they must have bad eyes. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! (Did you see how I used all-caps AND bold in that statement?).
I don’t care how young your eyes are, or how perfectly you see. When you are working on small, fine detail projects you simply are not seeing the same level of detail that you can see using properly designed magnification, period.
In fact, your eyes are likely straining to see that detail without some kind of magnification, particularly if you are working on that project for long periods of time. No matter what your age, proper magnification REDUCES EYE STRAIN, making it EASIER to see details.
Can you see the hockey game on that 19″ TV across the room? Sure, but would it be easier to see the puck if the TV at the same spot had a 42″ screen? Absolutely.
You got my point, right?
SEE THE PUCK!!
