The Bausch & Lomb brand has a renown reputation to be at the pinnacle of Hand Lens manufacturing. The Triplet Magnifiers incorporate three separate lenses, bonded together to form a compound lens to provide sharp, very distinct magnified image without distortion; even under 14 and 20 power magnification.
The only thing to be aware of is the size of the Lens. Against the generic brands, the B&L Lenses are smaller. For example 10x = 16mm, 14x = 12.5mm and 20x = 8mm - this is the lens apperture, not the diameter of the entire unit. Although it comes down to personal preferrence, we have had customers not realise that the lens sizes were smaller, so we like to make it easy and advise this.
The generic brands are also a great quality lens, and very popular due to their larger Lens apperture and they are cost effective. See the description for the Lens Apperture. Our HLECO-10 & HLECO-20 are the 2 most popular Hand Lenses, but we have a range of discontinued models that have clearance price tags while stocks last - so these could be the bargain your looking for!
All the Hand Lenses come with a Free Lanyard!
Note: The Hand Lens are sometimes these are referred to as ""Jewelers Loupes""
