Everyday it seems that the text on packages, contracts and other items gets smaller and smaller. How do you know what you are agreeing to? This pocket magnifier will take out some of that frustration. I like that this will fit in my purse, that it can be carried around with me in the case and will allow me to read the fine print. At 5X the size it is very nice to see the type. There is some discretion as it is a plastic case, not leather, but the magnifier works great.
