The microscope I use is called an Amscope. It is binocular dual power (20x and 40x) selectable with a rotating turret. The eyepieces were shipped mounted backwards for packing purposes and I had to disassemble it and reverse the eyepieces and the prisms. The eyepieces must be positioned so the front of the microscope is facing you when you are looking through it. Once you start using it you will be amazed how much better the view is. For more general work I use high power drugstore reading glasses. I still occasionally use loupes but not often.
