Excellent suggestion.  Safety glasses with bifocal magnification on the 
safety lenses that fit OVER prescription glasses are available from Fisher, 
Marketlab, Newcomer Supply.   We use these and the techs have their own for 
their personal use.  It is a cheap way to help out at embedding center or 
other hard to see tasks, even microtomy.

Or make sure there is good lighting and a decent magnifier on embedding 
center.  We prefer the bifocals instead - they don't get in the way.

For labeling problems in a high through-put reference lab, consider buying 
a slide labeler.  Writing on slides is often messy and hard to read, the 
same goes for cassettes.  These instruments also eliminate repetitive 
motion problems on labeling slanted surfaces and tons of slides.
