Edroy Opticaid Spring Clip On - Handsfree Flip-up Magnifier
The Edroy Opticaid Spring Clip has been a staple since the 1950's - it is the newer option to the original wire clip-on. The update was needed because of fashion change; glasses became smaller and frameless. Still made in the USA, lens from New Hampshire and the rest from New York.
Here's the way to choose your Opticaid Spring Clip This is a fixed focus, so you have a decision to make. Most people like dentists or model makers, beauticians for scientists need a specific working distance. If that's the case, then once you know the working distance, you require that will determine the magnification. On the other hand, if you need a specific magnification such as a jeweler, stamp collector, or quality control inspector and you require the maximum of 3.5X or even something less then that is what will determine the working distance.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Please, on your website and info on Amazon, include the definition of working distance. I have bought so many of these from you and absolutely love them, but I ALWAYS order the wrong one.*** I want the one that has a "2" imprinted on it.*** I always seem to buy/get the one that has a 3 or 4 on it as I only just looked up the definition of WD and find that it is the distance from the extender to my object to view, NOT the distance from my eyes and the distance I want to work at. I would really prefer one with a WD of 12 inches but I do not see that as an option. Can you tell me the number to order on Amazon or offer free shipping from your website please. Actually, I just measured the one I use that has 2 on it, and the distance from it to clear vision is 10 inches, and 12 inches from my eye and none of the numbers and their WD make me think that should be correct. I do not know the order number for it, thinking it should be 912 but that says WD is 20"!!! No wonder I order it wrong; this is harder than you might think. I want the one with a "2" imprinted on it. Please help. I cannot find that on Amazon. If you stated what is imprinted on it on Amazon, I would never order incorrectly again.Thank you.
Thank you for your question - regarding Amazon there are many times that we are not able to change a listing because the original listing belongs to another merchant. But we will continue to try.
Edroy products have three main products. We have the Magni-focuser headband, the Spring Clip Opticaid, and the Wire Style Opticaid - all 3 use the same lens specifications.
The last digit of the model number (example 712) is the diopter for the lens, not the magnification. The 2 series are all 1.50X. We have a chart for all the products listed with each style.
