OptiVISOR Headband Magnifier

About This Item

See better to do better work! The OptiVISOR flip-up magnifier frees both hands for inlaying, wiring, fret dressing and other close work.

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.

Must have for older eyes

By

Verified Buyer


When I saw the product, I knew I needed it. I ordered one with the LED light attachment. The item works very well. I can see clearly without taking on/off my glasses, and the light helps with shining on the object I want to work on.

Great aid for older eyes....

By

Verified Buyer


I really like this OptiVISOR. I wasn't sure I would gel with it, but it fits well over my glasses, and really helps with identifying resistor values (those color bands can be really hard to see).
I have to flip it up quite a bit, but it moves smoothly, and it makes working on small electronics a lot easier.
I also found that it helps me to see my solder joints a lot more clearly, so I can spot troublesome joins where I didn't quite make a solid connection.
I'd recommend this headband magnifier.

Is a must have

The OptiVisor and LED feature are as indispensable as fine sable brush for exacting touch-up. Really Upped the quality of my touch-up work
Beware the crappy velcro strap/battery holder, they tend to slip, allowing the battery- pack to drop; breaking the wire. wrap your favorite color tape around it for better security Saving yourself having to spend your monies twice !

I managed to snap off one of the wires on my OptiVISOR's light unit. This one works better than the original.

Bought this for closeup woodworking. Pleasantly surprised. Works as advertised -- can't stay out of the shop.

Very helpful

By

Verified Buyer


I purchased this magnifier to add to the tools I use for marquetry. Wish I had purchased years ago. The lens that came with the device is of greater magnification, shorter focal length, than the existing magnifier but it does allow me to get closer to the project. The LED’s are a major plus. My only complaint is that the LED’s seem to flicker when turning on via the switch. Most likely a loose wire in the switch. Otherwise, a great asset.

useful as well as fashionable

I'd got this as an upgrade and it definitely is. The combination of glass lenses, batteries, and lights make it a bit heavier than my old cheapo version but that's more than offset by the secure adjustability and comfortable fit. It's wonderful to have light focused where you are actually looking. So much better than clenching a flashlight in your teeth and messin' with gooseneck lamps. The light this thing gives off is nice and bright but silvery blue and definitely changes the way color looks, so just be aware of that.

Great Optics, great lighting!

By

Verified Buyer


The optics are very clear, much better than my prior pair of magnifying glasses and the led lights really light up the what I'm working on. I finally can really see the detail of what I am doing!

I can wear it over my glasses!

By

Verified Buyer


My old eyes don’t see as well as they used too. I am constantly taking my glasses on and off to do really fine work like binding and purfling channels or rosettes. With the optivisor I can work on detail work without ever having to take my glasses off. A real plus. And they are surprisingly comfortable. Just what I needed!
