Mirrors with 5X, 8X, even 10X magnification?

It's so confusing…

But did you know that these numbers are just labels?


There are many mirrors on the market that claim to be 5X, 8X, 10X, or even more. but did you know that these numbers are just labels, not scientific measurements! A mirror company can call their mirrors any number of "X's" they want, but these numbers really have no meaning.

Magic Focus, Inc. was the first company to call a mirror "5X" over 35 years ago. When we started manufacturing our "big eyes®" mirrors in 1970, they were so much stronger than any other mirror on the market, we called them "5X" to let the public know that our mirrors were different. We wanted people to know that they can see in this mirror without their eyeglasses, because our mirror focuses to each individual user's visual needs, providing a strong, optically correct, distortion-free image. Our mirrors are perfect for applying makeup, inserting contact lenses, or doing detail grooming, something not possible with other mirrors.

Over the years, other mirrors have come onto the market, which are labeled 5X, 6X, 7X, 8X,10X or more. But people who have tried those mirrors tell us that they are not as strong or distortion-free as Magic Focus mirrors, regardless of the number of "X's" those mirrors claim to be, and that they just do not provide a sharp, clear image like Magic Focus mirrors do.
