Please help me find a magnifying lens
I'm learning that counting pistils and determining ovary position and all that stuff required to identify plants really isn't so bad. The problem I have, though, is that I can't see this stuff on really small flowers. I read about hand lens and spent 2 hours finding a good value on a quality lens (10x 18mm). But I can't use it at all. It's not just that I'm extremely nearsighted, but I've also had a detached retina in my right eye so I don't have much central vision. I think I'm too uncoordinated to use my left eye. So, what kind of magnifying lens can I use in the field? I'd like something better than taking off my glasses and putting the object an inch from my eye. Thanks for any suggestions.
