The Bausch & Lomb 5x Magnifier (Pocket) Packette


The Bausch & Lomb 5x Pocket Magnifier Packette

This little inexpensive palm-size 5x magnifier that slides outward and into its own little plastic “packette” (turtle shell :-) for pocket portability and complete product protection is a great discovery-learning tool for any and all classrooms and any and all persons and locations: indoors or outdoors, in the wide open world of Civilization and Nature.

The B & L 5x magnifier is a wonderful tool of vision-enhancement: it reveals the largely unseen smaller world of everyday things that surround us but mostly go unnoticed. It reveals:
-- the weave of cloth
--the textures of food
--the “fingerprints” of our fingers
--the cellularity of plants
--the engineering of a ball-point pen
-- the machining spiral of a metal screw
--the pixels of a computer screen
and much much more...

Everything around us and even on and in us, is a “whole” thing composed of parts; everything has Structure & Function, and magnifiers—from microscopes to telescopes: from the “nano” scale to the “astro” scale-- enhance our vision of this world. Vision enhances our survival as a species and empowers our knowledge of the world we live in.

This little portable pocket 5x magnifier is an enormous tool of vision and learning.
It is also an amazing tool of beauty: to see things “as they are”, but often unnoticed in our modern world of electronic devices and entertainment, and in our modern whirled of hurry and stimulus overload, this little tool is a magnifier of "time-taken" to observe: which is the art and science of long
and/or care-full looking.

“To see the world in a grain of sand
and heaven in a wildflower.
To hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.”

That is what William Blake said long ago; he was an English Poet, Painter, and Printmaker from the late 1700's to the early 1800's...and I happily agree, living now with his Wisdom and Vision...

Now, you can discover your's... and share what you see...

For less than $10, the Bausch & Lomb 5x magnifier packette is available at:
