Product Features

  • Binocular headband magnifier provides hands-free magnification and viewing for a variety of applications such as jewelry-making, watch-making, needlework, artwork, electronic inspection, book-reading, print inspection, and stamp-collecting
  • Available in multiple dioptric strengths (indicated by the model number) that provide a specific magnification power (X), depending on the distance from the object
  • Optical glass lenses are ground and polished into prismatic lenses for quality and clarity; easier to clean than plastic lenses
  • A dioptric number and a magnification number are not the same thing. Diopter strength represents a specific magnification power (X). For example, a 5-diopter provides 2.5X magnification (at a distance of 8")
  • Can be worn over prescription or safety eyeglasses

Size: 3.5x Magnification, 4" Focal LengthColor: BLACK
I have owned an OptiVisor for several years. Originally purchased for work, I bought a second pair for home and have used them for (to name a few) pulling splinters out of the kids fingers, assessment of a problem with my dog's paw, detailed gluing of small project work, removing and assessing a tick, replacing a watch battery and for making small, detailed measurements. My eyes aren't what they used to be--but with these... they're temporarily much, much better!
Others have reviewed the limited depth of field. This is true--you'll need to be close to the subject for it to be in focus. Please understand that this is not a fault of the manufacturer but is the way optics perform when designed to work in this fashion. In my opinion, this limitation makes these an unsuitable solution for reading unless you need extreme help and are willing to hold the material very close. I've tried. It's clumsy.
Two notes from my years of using this product. 1) There are "thumbturn" tighteners (small knobs visible in the picture) that keep the visor in position once you've adjusted it on your head. We tend to only tighten the one on the right because we are right handed. The left one became loose, fell off, and was lost for quite some time before we located it under the couch. Keep both of these finger-tight or you may lose one of them. 2) The optics can scratch if you store the visor improperly. We like the visor so much that we put a hook on the wall near the office desk--just an arm's reach away. Easy access. Safe storage.
These are ruggedly built, well-designed and have helped me to solve many problems. Therefore, they get my 5-star approval and recommendation.

I been using this product for years and years, 1 have 2 broken ones where the plastic hood part cracks and is impossible to glue back together.
but is light weight and I can wear them all day working on electronic circuit boards.
There are many magifications of this product but this one a #5 is just right gives you about 7-8 inches away from work area

Size: 1.75x Magnification, 14" Focal LengthColor: Gray Verified Purchase
I purchased the Donegan OptiVisor after researching several different brands and styles of headband magnifier to help me better see small parts when I make custom jewelry. I need to be sure that all the pieces fit snugly, joints are even, and any scratches or sharp ends on wire and findings are eliminated.

The GLASS lens sold me on this particular one over the others I looked at. From other reviewer's comments of all the brands I researched, I gathered that the optical quality for the glass lens was superior to the more common, plastic lens which often was or became blurry or distorted and could not be worn for extended periods without developing a headache or eye-distress.

I was also concerned about lens scratches, etc. I believe I made the correct choice. The headband is infinitely adjustable and lined in the forehead area with a soft headpiece which makes it very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. The visor has knobs on each side allowing me to adjust tension for the task at hand. After the initial period of getting used to wearing the headband and adjusting my working distances, I have worn this magnifier for hours without getting a headache or developing eye-distress! The OptiVisor also fits comfortably with my prescription glasses on.

I also like the fact that the lens can be changed out for another magnification or replaced should it become damaged, without having to replace the entire headband. Although made entirely from plastic (except for the lens) the Donegan OptiVisor quality is excellent, and given some care in use and storage, should last for several years. I do not regret purchasing this product -- and after shopping around, Amazon was the least expensive online store I found.

Size: 3.5x Magnification, 4" Focal LengthColor: BLACK Verified Purchase
I bought this headband magnifier to be able to work hands-free on electronic circuitry and small surface mount components. I thought I'd be able to use a small soldering iron while wearing the visor, but at the point of good focus there's only about 3 to 4 inches of clearance between the lenses and the work. It can still be done, but you have to be careful as you bring the iron in and out of the working view so you don't burn the visor or the lenses.

This magnifier is good overall. The fit is nice and snug and pretty comfortable to wear for extended time. The lenses are good quality, although if I had to buy another I'd get a lower magnification than this 3-1/2X. It's very hard to work with items because the focal length is under 4 inches. The 2.5X or 2.75X are probably better for getting more working distance. The knob-adjust headband is a nice feature for quickly adjusting to a snug fit, and the side knobs let you adjust the up/down swing very easily.

I also ordered the OptiLoupe 2.5X addon, but that thing is pretty useless. It's very hard to use and it has a narrow zone of vision.

Overall, the construction and quality of this headband visor is very good and it does what it claims.
It costs a bit more than most others, but it seems to be of very good construction.

Size: 2.5x Magnification, 8" Focal Length
These are everywhere and can be found at low prices if you look around, which you should because these are the most form-fitting, all-day wearable magnifiers of the bunch. Not fancy, not a lot of features, and not much weight, which is very important if you plan on actually using this type of head worn magnifier for extended periods. The lens material is very scratch resistant, easy to clean, and clear. The adjustable headband is simple and not fancy at all, but it conforms to your head, unlike the very uncomfortable B&Ls, which I also have.

I bought my last pair of these for less than I see here on Amazon, where I think they are priced a little high. Even so, these are the ones to get, because the design is superior.
