Orvis Super Magnifiers

Improve precision at the bench with these unique magnifying eye glasses.


You can't buy these special magnifying eye glasses in a department store. Most reading eye glasses give you a maximum magnification of 3X, but these optically correct magnifying glasses are stronger and the focal point is closer, exactly where you need it to be for tying flies or replacing tippets. Eye glasses come in 4X and 5X magnifications (please specify).

    This was a gift to my mother, who has macular degeneration. Her feedback was 100% positive! She said she could finally read!

    These magnifiers are incredible. I have both the 4x and 5x. I keep the 4x in my fishing bag for those size 22s with 8x tippet. I use the 5x for tying those 22 flies. Using these is so helpful for many situations. My wife loves them for their ability to pull splinters out.

    I was recently diagnosed with Tersons syndrome after a brain bleed. This is a condition that affects ones vision and is hopefully temporary. I am happy to say the 5x magnifying glasses have enabled me to read, see the computer and set the temp on the Oven. Thank you Orvis for my quality of life!

    I really struggle with my sight when I am in the water trying to get a new fly on. These have really been a blessing for me.

    Great Addition for Stream Side - 6/26/2014

    Recently i found myslef having a difficult time with knots and other matters. I needed a sound pair of magnifiers and found them here at Orvis. The glasses are made with quality components and the butterfly hinges make for easy on and off with other items hanging around your neck. Makes life much easier on and off the water.

    Great glasses - 6/2/2014

    Will be good for tying flies onto Tippett. Focal distance is short so not ideal for tying flies which is why I wanted them in the first place.

    I just received my new Orvis Super Magnifiers and was very pleased with the quality and clearness of the lenses. I am anxious to use them for close up fly tying work up here on the upper Kings River in the Sierras. I now have no excuses.

    I can see!! - 1/20/2014
    By: from Fresno, CA

    I like these glasses. My eyes are getting worse every year. I cannot thread a fly even with my 1.75 magnification reading glasses. These are great, because they are high quality with nice clear lenses. They are not the typical 10 dollar reading glasses, they are crystal clear. The focal point is also perfect for fly fishing. These are great glasses, if you are having problems seeing the fly, these will work great for you!!

    Great Product - 1/18/2014

    Very well made. I have the 5X for my shop and the 4X to replace my prescription reading glasses. These are a great investment if you do any fine work.
