Description

The basic purpose of a magnifying lamp is to provide high quality light in order to make the item you are looking at brighter and more visible. The lens section of the magnifying lamp then serves to provide image augmentation, which makes whatever is being inspected much larger and easier to focus on. This double-whammy makes it a great deal easier to work with small print and objects that require close up inspection.

MAGNIFYING LAMP BASICS

AN ARTICLE BY TOPLEKA.NET Low Vision Aids & Magnifying Lamps © 2014 Topleka.net

If you regularly read newspapers and books or are frequently engaged in hobby crafts such as sewing or embroidery it’s highly likely that you could benefit from a lamp that uses magnification. Reading and focusing on small text and close up details of hobby craft can cause a great deal of stress on the eyes and can exacerbate vision that is already poor. This is exactly where magnifying lamps can provide plenty of assistance and relief, particularly if you are already suffering from a condition like macular degeneration. The basic purpose of a magnifying lamp is to provide high quality light in order to make the item you are looking at brighter and more visible. The lens section of the magnifying lamp then serves to provide image augmentation, which makes whatever is being inspected much larger and easier to focus on. This double-whammy makes it a great deal easier to work with small print and objects that require close up inspection. There is a wide choice of lamps on the market and they can essentially be split into two different types – those powered by light from fluorescent tubes and those powered by Light Emitting Diodes (also known as LEDs). Let’s look at both of these in turn.

Magnifying lamps that generate light with fluorescent tubes are known to produce a very natural light, due mainly to the specialist bulbs produced by companies light Ott, Daylight and ProMagnify. These bulbs emit full spectrum light, which is superior to LEDs and the standard incandescent bulbs. The slight downside with fluorescent magnifying lamps is the fact that they do not last as long as LEDs. Lamps that use Light Emitting Diodes as their source of illumination tend to produce brighter light than other bulb types. LEDs are also more ecologically sound, as they use less electricity to work. They also have a very long lifespan, vastly longer than fluorescent tubes. The only disadvantage of using LEDs is perhaps the fact that the quality of light produced is less natural and a little harsher than the fluorescent magnifying lamps.
