Eschenbach Illuminated Stand Magnifiers sit directly on flat surfaces for hands-free use but also have similar portability to hand-held models. They are ideal for reading and for people who find it difficult to hold conventional magnifiers.
Handles and lenses have to be ordered separately - a 'mix and match' system of interchangeable handles, lens heads and power sources allows users maximum comfort and control. To create a magnifier that meets your requirement first choose the lens(es) then select a handle from the drop-down list below.
Prices in the table below offer a 10% discount off the normal list price. Note: please remember that lenses and handles have to be ordered separately.
LENSES - All models feature Eschenbach's lightweight PXM lenses coated on both sides for extra durability. Some models have a retractable red line for easier reading while rectangular versions have an extra pivotable lens to help master smaller text or different orientation of printed matter.
HANDLES - Tungsten handles are cheapest but LED handles offer brighter illumination and longer-lasting battery life. Both need two LR14 batteries.

How do I order the Eschenbach Vario Plus illuminated stand magnifier?
The Eschenbach Vario Plus magnifier is described by the manufacturer as a modular system, and what that means is that the user chooses a lens and a handle separately. Our listings show both the handle and the lens as separate items: please remember to order both a lens and a handle if you have never ordered before. For the handle we always recommend the LED version, which offers a particularly bright and long-lasting white light; the lens is really down to the user and starts at 2.8x magnification. The strongest lens in the range goes up to 12.5x, which makes it one of the most powerful hand-held magnifiers available.
A hand magnifier which also rests on the page
All Vario Plus magnifiers can be hand-held or rested directly on the page so they are especially suitable for reading over long periods of time and for people with poor hand articulation who cannot hold magnifiers freely (e.g. age-related shaking or Parkinson's disease). Larger Vario Plus models -i.e.with a diameter of 58mm and above - have a retractable red reading line for easier line orientation and increased reading speed. The rectangular magnifier heads are equipped with a supplementary swivel lens for additional magnification.
