A magnifier glass is a convex lens that is used to produce a magnified image of an object. The lens is usually mounted in a frame with a handle. A magnifying glass can be used to focus light, such as to concentrate the sun's radiation to create a hot spot at the focus for fire starting.
Although it seems that the magnifying glass does not represent much importance in the scientific environment, it is worth highlighting about this object its relevance in a contribution to science, especially due to the many benefits provided at a social level. The magnifying glass is defined as an optical instrument that serves to enlarge the image of objects that consists of a magnifying lens, a lens that is usually held by a previously connected handle.
It is widely used today in different areas due to its usefulness both for people who suffer from blurred vision or lack of vision, or also for those who go beyond what is easily observable or visible to the naked eye, as it is very useful to when you want to glimpse the microscopic nuances of an object.
Binocular loupes or stereomicroscopes are instruments of optical magnification, with binocular, stereoscopic (3D) vision and with a magnification range that can go from 7X to 65X. These loupes are used to view samples that are alive or dead, opaque or translucent, and of a relatively large size.
