I know someone that has a MagniSight, and it helps him read better. His eyesight is getting worse and worse, but this little geem is helping him read anything his heart desires.
The example on the post is a comic book of Charlie Brown. This little wonder helps print look larger. Then it even has a focus knob on it so you can adjust the settings so it is even clearer. I do not know how much this cost. My friend got it for his brother, and he does not know what he paid for it.
All you have to do to get this machine to do its things is place whatever you want to see larger under it. It makes things very readable. I tried it out and I loved it.
This may be an answer for you if you have trouble reading. It is better than a magnifying glass in my opinion.
