Loupe - Optics


Three basic types of loupes exist.

  • Simple lenses, which result in the highest degree of Optical aberration and are generally lower magnification.
  • Multiple lenses, generally higher magnification because of the reduced Optical aberration.
  • Prismatic, Multiple lenses with prisms used to change the Perspective.
