The OptiVISOR comes with 2X magnification lens with a 10" (25.4cm) focal length — good for medium-close work like pearl cutting, inlaying, engraving and fret-dressing. The lenses are removable so you can switch to the 1.5X lens (#1688, sold separately), which gives you the option of a broader view.

Snap the Quasar LS™ high-intensity lights on the front of your OptiVISOR and really light up your work! High efficiency LEDs (light emitting diodes) surround the lenses to virtually eliminate shadows in hard-to-light areas. The lightweight battery box (with on/off switch) attaches easily to the OptiVISOR frame. Two AA batteries are included.

"However did I manage without it?"
—Stefan Sobell, renowned luthier Northumberland, England

If you've watched our videos, you know ace repairman Dan Erlewine is seldom without his OptiVISOR!

Lenses are optically-ground polished glass. Headband is adjustable and comfortably padded.

A required tool in all work shops

As before, ordering was fast and easy. Delivery was as promised. The items where in excellent condition. I wished that I had purchased the optiVisor and 2x lens w/lights years ago. Detail work is much easier.

Optivisor review

When I decided to purchase the optivisor, I had no idea what a great product this was. Not a cheap plastic toy, but a well constructed tool I find myself using more and more. A must have for inlay work, especially if your eyes aren't as young as they used to be. The light is very bright and makes it much more usefull. Worth the money. Get one!!

Couldn't Live Without It!

There is no way I could function without this thing. For doing detail work like inlay, it is just utterly indispensable. No more squinting and not having enough light! Excellent.

Excellent product, easy assembly, the LED lights are the icing on the cake - makes that closeup work a breeze. And the delivery was amazing as usual - 3-4 days to get to the other side of the world.

Excellent product

The 2X magnification level and LED light level are both excellent for detail work, and the whole unit looks & feels like it's built to last. Recommended!

Pleasantly surprised

Wow. I was skeptical but as soon as I tried them on I was amazed! And then I tried the LED light! Must have for fine work.

Product is great. Too bad I cannot find extra lenses, nobody will ship to Greece. Like lens plates No 10 (3 1/2...4 inches). Oh well no problem
