Light and magnification just where you need it. Our Spring Chicken tester found the LED light in this magnifier just right level to see clearly to read without glare. You can wear it round your neck, so you don't have the inconvenience of realising your magnifier's fallen down the side of the chair or onto the floor just when you need it. Depending on how big your book is, you do have to move larger books in order to read some parts. It arrived in easy to open minimal packaging which we liked.
