Question about Loupes

Post by SeikoJohn on Fri Feb 09 2018, 15:14

I have 3 loupes 2x , 5x and 10x magnification .



I just can not hold them in place using my eye muscles I look like Quasimodo trying to hold it in place



I got thinking what if i drilled (very carefully) a hole either side of the loupe then thread some elastic through it this might then hold the loupe in place . Any other ideas before I take the drill to the loupe

I was hoping to modify the ones I had rather than buy new ones. I have seen the ones that clip onto glasses they look like a good idea. Maybe I could bluetack one of the loupes onto the lense of my spare glasses ?

trouble is they need to be the right distance from your eyes to focus properly Crying or Very sad
