Measuring magnification

    How to Measure magnification
    How can I see how strong a magnifying glass is?

    I hear a lot of people talk about

    magnifying and how strong the magnification is, but I would like to know the true

    magnification of my magnifying glass. I have a few of them and some seem stronger then

    others. How can I rate these? How can I pin a correct number on mine? How do the companies

    that make these come up with these numbers.
