Viewer Helper

Rate this product

Viewer Helper is a rectangular magnifying screen that's about the same size as a tablet or a hand-held mirror. Unlike a standard magnifying glass, it'll stand on its own, so while using it, you'll be able to keep both of your hands free to complete your tasks at hand. To use it, all you'll need to do is place it in front of whatever object( s ) you need to magnify, and it'll magnify them up to three times their original size. The screen will rotate 360 degrees (a full circle), so you can turn it to see a particular object at the most desirable angle, if needed.

The Claim

When you use Viewer Helper to magnify a wide variety of objects, you're unlikely to find yourself having to squint or go cross-eyed in order to get a good view of something again. You can use this screen to magnify a needle and thread, small pieces that you're using to make crafts, or small print on paper or a digital device, among other things. It'll even come in handy when you need to remove a tiny sliver from your hand or foot, or from that of a child. The device has a built-in light, so it'll work just as effectively at night as it does during the daytime.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Viewer Helper is $14.99 plus $6.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows a free gift which you will receive by paying the extra shipping fee of $3.95 for a total price of $25.89. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Viewer Helper being discontinued. Viewer Helper may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.


  • Triple Magnification

    Viewer Helper will make any object that you place it in front of, regardless of how tiny the object is to begin with, appear up to three times larger. This'll enable you to see the object in greater detail.

  • Free Standing

    This device will stand on its own without falling over, so you won't have to use either of your hands to hold it up. That means if you're making crafts, performing repairs, typing, or writing, you'll be able to use both hands for these tasks, if you choose.

  • Rotates 360 Degrees

    Viewer Helper will rotate 360 degrees on its stand, so you'll be able to turn it to whatever angle will enable you to see the objects( s ) you're working with best. No matter what angle it's resting at, it will still stay upright.

  • Large Screen

    The screen of each Viewer Helper is about the size of a tablet's screen, so you'll be able to use it to magnify several objects in front of you at once, if you desire.

  • Built-in Light

    A bright light is built into each Viewer Helper, so you'll be able to use the device to magnify things at night or in a dim room without difficulty.

  • White

    Each of these devices comes in white, so they're unlikely to clash with anything in a room. However, if you think that yours looks boring, you may wish to decorate the edges of the screen with knick-knacks.


  • Hand-held Magnifying Glass

    You can use a hand-held magnifying glass to magnify objects, too, but if you do so, you'll only have one hand free to work with. Furthermore, the screens on these are not as large as the screens found on each Viewer Helper.

  • Magnifying Eyewear

    Eyeglasses that magnify objects and magnifiers that clip onto prescription glasses are also available, but you may get tired of wearing these as you work, and they don't always look attractive. Plus, it can be a pain to add and remove the clip-on magnifiers every time you need to see an object in greater detail.

Positive Points

  • Ideal for Students

    Viewer Helper is ideal for students who need to magnify certain objects while working on projects, or temporarily enlarge small print in textbooks, since it can be used during the day or night. If you're a student who prefers to stay up late studying, you can just flip on the device's built-in light.

  • Suitable for Office Use

    If you're an office worker, you'll be able to keep your Viewer Helper on your desk until you need to use it. It may come in handy when you need to study detailed graphs, charts, or diagrams, especially if you want to take notes on the computer or notepaper while doing so.

  • Great for Seniors

    Seniors with arthritic hands may have difficulty holding a hand-held magnifying glass for a long period of time, but fortunately, Viewer Helper doesn't need to be held up.

  • Can be Used by Kids

    With a hand-held magnifying glass, there may be the worry that a child who lacks hand-eye coordination might drop it and break it, but with Viewer Helper, you won't need to be concerned about this. If your child tends to be clumsy, just set the device up for them on a table before they use it.
