• Do they make specialty glasses for soldering small electronic parts?


    Question:

    I do a lot of soldering of small electronic parts and I was wondering if they can make a pair of glasses that would allow me to see the small parts at a specific distance such as 9 inches? I already have a glasses for -8 nearsightedness. Can they make progressive lenses for a specific distance? A pair of prescription glasses that actually magnify the parts would be great. Is that possible?


    Answer:

    Glasses can be made for any specific distance. In the case of 9 inches, the glasses would need to be between a plus 4 and plus 4.5 addition over your distance correction. This is a rather high number for progressive addition lenses but certainly can be made in single vision or as a bifocal.
