Learn more about Lighted Magnifiers: A magnifying glass with light is a great choice for reading, hobbies, industrial applications, and more. The light is not just for dimly lit areas -- it can also make it easier to see what you are looking at. A lighted magnifying glass will usually feature an LED (light-emitting diode) bulb, which lasts much longer than a traditional incandescent bulb and provides for bright illumination. On this page above, we feature handheld magnifying glass with light. If you are looking for a hands free model, visit our Hands Free Collection.
