There are magnifiers that attach to your safety glasses or  directly to 
eyeglasses. - the latter clip onto top of my prescription glasses.  There 
are magnifier pasties you can attach directly to outside of safety 
glasses.  Henry Schein company (they have a website) in dental 
products,  has clip on eye loupes.  I have also purchased them from 
knitting stores (Patternworks website, and sewing stores).  The magnifiers 
that clip onto top of frames are more versatile and fit onto all eyeglasses 
- the ones with wires only fit onto large frames.  These will run about 

There is also the possibilty that cheap magnifying eyewear, funky colors, 
etc can be worn under safety glasses - each technician can have their own 
eyeglasses for their favorite style and magnification. Cheap reading 
glasses have  magnifications from 1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2 and 3X.  They range 
in price from $10 to 20$ - found at WalMart, KMart, Target, supermarkets 
and drugstores, Pearle Vision . There are pencil thin reading glasses in 
mall kiosks, etc - up to 1.75 mag.  These are totally funky, and coolest of
