Works as described! Bought this for my grandmother--here are some thoughts:

For those who may not understand how the Fresnel lens works, there is no magnification if the lens is directly against the object or sheet you are trying to magnify. As you pull away holding the lens, what you view will gradually magnify. As far as I can tell, the maximum 3X magnification for this particular lens is approximately six inches from what you are viewing.

This magnifier is not as flimsy and unwieldy as some suggest. It is possible to comfortably hold the lens in landscape (horizontally) with one hand at the bottom corner as the product image suggests, but you will find it more effective and easier to manage if you use two hands in landscape. Holding it in portrait (vertically) with one or two hands is not as comfortable, personally.

This was intended as a gift for an Uncle who has cataracts, and is myopic. I put the lens in an old wooden picture frame for him. So he can hold the entire lens with one hand while he reads. Bought one for me, too, since this problem got passed down to me, too...

I previously left a Feedback Review of "I have nothing good to say, I have nothing bad to say". I am changing that to the product does what it says. But unfortunately, I need a stronger magnifying strength. It's not JupiterWholesales' fault that the 3X Full Page Magnifier Fresnel Lens was not the Magnifying strength that I needed. I just chose the wrong one. It's a good product to have in a jiffy to read small print that you would otherwise squint to see.

Bought this for an aunt who has sight issues. You have to be able to hover this offer the page an inch or so to have a good effect for magnification. If you are trying to look something up it works great. If you want to read extensively with it - I would choose something else.

Purchased for my father when he broke his glasses and had to wait to for his new pair - he used it to read the news paper, books, and had no complaints about it.

If you want something you can slip into a book when not in use, I guess this would be OK, but I found the flimsiness of the product meant it bent, warped and distorted my text. I like the Mighty Bright magnifier better.

This simply did not work. I needed it for reading books and could not get it to magnify the page. It only magnified small pieces and I constantly had to readjust it. It was too inconvenient to be helpful in any way. Since this was a short term need I did not spend any more money trying to find something else that did work. I would advise folks not to even try it.

We bought this for elderly parents. It is just too hard for them to hold it in exactly the right place for reading. Maybe we were expecting too much.

flimsy, hard to use, not worth the time nor money spent on these. I feel sorry for the person with low vision that were excited to get this only to find out it is a waste of money!

I have ordered probably over two dozen products from Amazon and this was hands down the WORST. First of all, it arrived cracked in half. Secondly, it was not even clear, poor poor quality. Should have known, cheap product so you get what you paid for. Threw it in the trash, didn't even bother sending it back for a refund; not worth the time. Took the time to write this so hopefully nobody else gets ripped off.
