Mark TWO Eyeball

For the miniatures painter, there is little more aggravating than poor or failing eyesight. But age comes to us all (whether we like it or not) and sooner or later, most of us will need to upgrade the Mark 1 eyeball.


  1. I am honoured to be mentioned on such a monumental you chooob channel.
    Ray (blind without his special need glasses)

  2. Exactly the same situation as mine Lee, though one of my wonderful daughters gave me a visor thing with replaceable lenses a couple of christmases ago. The visor is good for when the 3.5 reading glasses are just not strong enough but that's not very often.

  3. I use one of those head mounted visor things. Game changer!

  4. I have a VERY strong prescription for distance correction, which has in the last year or so also become an issue with close up focus. For normal life I have progressive lenses (basically fancy and costly bifocals), but I have found that for painting figures I have to take them off and just bring the figure very close to my eye. Probably time to try some sort of auxiliary lens!


Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, check out my YouTube channel Miniature Adventures TV
