Loupes are used frequently by Jewelers, Watch Makers, Printers and Photographers. Carson manufactures Jewelers Loupes with a little twist…a patented rubber eyepiece that makes wearing the item more comfortable relative to traditional Jewelers Loupes. Carson also manufactures Photographic Loupes and Printing Loupes. Photographic Loupes are used to inspect slides, film, and even camera viewfinders. Printing Loupes are used to examine how inks lay on a printed surface. Carson's Photographic Loupes are used by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to inspect passports and driver's licenses in all US airports.
A close cousin of the Loupe is a Linen Tester. Linen Testers are used to count threads and can be found in the Folding and PopUp Magnifiers section.
