Just found a pair of these Magnifying Eye Glasses and thought might be ideal for small detail work or painting miniature figures.

Hi Karl, if these are the $7 ones from China, then yes I have 2 sets. I got mine for doing figures and cant wait to try them out.

I bought a set of these early on in my return to the hobby. Don't waste your money. Spend $25 for a spelunking headlamp and battery.

be careful with cheap lenses if you wear to much you can easily damege your vision and end the day with i nice headache
if you really want something like that spend some money more...is like the AB out side the difference from a cheap chinese AB and a Iwata out side look same but when you use it the story change...

Karl I bought these from China last summer....less than 15 dollars shipping included! Thought it was too good to be true....what a waste of time and at least not much money

I have to have the object about 1/4 of an inch away from the lenses...

They look cool, but mine are useless!!!
