I know that feeling and I am 45! and just managed with my old magnifier on the speedball build. The week before Christmas I found a 2.5x magnifying glass with 2 LED lighting modes for £4.99 at my local Lidl store. I was expecting it to be a cheap plastic affair but was quiet surprised at the quality machined aluminium construction, it has a nice weight to it. It also came with a zipper case and 2AA batteries included and a 5 year warranty . I wonder how they make and ship things like this for the money and why some plastic fantastic products cost so much.
