I use flip up headband magnifiers and like them. I recently retired from a job of 20+ years where I wore them eight hours a day. I have several pairs here at home and use them frequently when I need to see fine detail. They make several different focal length lenses for the ones I use, I like to use something around 18". The greater the magnification you use the shorter the focal length and field of view becomes. I don't use the lighted ones much but I have some, I just got used to the ones without the light.
If you want something light weight an unobtrusive there safety glasses available that have a magnifier set into them like bifocals. These are inexpensive and work ok but you don't get as many choices of the magnification powers. Which ever style you choose I think you will appreciate the ability to see detail better.
