    Carson PO-55 reviews

    PO-55 5x MiniBrite Pocket Magnifier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Know the ingredients in your over the counter medicine. If you have high blood pressure or are allergic to certain things then you need to know what is in something before you take it. If you look at the ingredients on a bottle of cough medicine they are almost impossible to read. This little magnifier by Carson will make them clear as a bell. It is also compact, solid and well made. It will fit in your briefcase, purse, glove compartment, drawer. etc. It was a good buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my life easier! I love, love, love this magnifier. It's small enough to fit in my pocket or purse so it's handy, and its magnification is powerful enough that it actually helps read those medicine bottles and small print on prepared foods. I can't wait to try it in a restaurant where I am sure the light will come in handy. And the price was awesome. Probably gonna buy one more at least. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnifier for Mom-in-law works wonders This magnifier is used by an elderly woman with maculear degeneration. She's able to read telephone numbers, advertisements, and view printed photos much better than her old magnifier. The magnifier is light to hold, yet is easy to turn on and off. Her old magnifier was hard to turn off, which burned through batteries and bulbs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great magnifier I work in retail and often need to read very small print on labels so I keep this with me whenever I'm working. A coworker saw me using it, asked me to try it and now wants me to buy one for them too! I like the slide-out lens(keeps the lens protected)and the small size. Just what I needed. Works great for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright light & good magnification I use it to view fine print, since my eyes are 50+ years old. The light is bright and the optics are pretty clear. However, it is a little difficult to hold it at an optimal distance from the print and simultaneously move it smoothly so that reading is easy, since the area of the lens is not that big.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product; fulfilled my expectations I place the product over each of my two thermostats and when I want to change the thermostat setting at night (e.g., to turn on A/C or heater from it's preset setting), I can use the lighted magnifier

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Magnifier Great magnifier. Has become my go-to item, replacing my standard magnifiers. Not only is nice and compact but the built-in LED light makes hard to read text a lot easier than a standard magnifier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice design I bought this model and the 3x model at the same time. I figured with my bad eyes I could use both. I think both the light and sliding cover feature make these magnifiers special.
