Try buying a pair of 3.00X reading glasses from a Dollar store (Family
Dollar, the Dollar Store, Dollar General) and putting them on over your
regular glasses. cost $5 or less.

Can't see a thing with them on over my bifocals, but they do make great
magnifying glasses. I bought a pair of clip on, flip up half lens type
reading glasses that magnify 4.00x, I think. Heavy enough that, when I
have them on my glasses, I about have to glue my glasses to my head to
keep them in place when I bend over, but magnify enough to see pollen
A big help when daubing. Might not be enough to see texture Sharon is
talking about tho?
