If you could do with a little extra magnification your glasses can double up as a magnifying glass. Simply hold one of the lenses over the word or item which you want magnifying and move the lens in and out will magnify it.

use several pairs of reading glasses Comments By: Diane B. on 2005-03-07
Use more than one pair of (inexpensive "reading") glasses at a time, when you need to see something small for a short time. One pair will fit on your nose loosely in front of the other pair. You may look strange, but you can see!

For longer viewing, buy a stronger pair of reading glasses... I have one pair of 3.25 reading glasses just for taking out splinters, threading difficult needles, etc.

Another tip is good for emergencies. Close your fist *almost* all the way. Then look through the tiny hole created by the tunnel in your palm (from the thumb end). The tiny hole will act as a lens and magnify a few words well enough to read them (some adjusting of the hole or distance between fist and words may be necessary).
