English term or phrase: reading stone
A reading stone was an approximately hemispherical transparent object placed on top of text to magnify the letters so that people with presbyopia could read the text more easily. Reading stones were among the earliest common uses of lenses.

agree  lucca: Păstrează un anumit arhaism al termenului original. Lupele/lentilele sunt termeni tare pedeştri în contextul respectiv.

lupa de citit

pietrele citirii sau pietre de citit mi se par niste inventii "furculisioniste"
lupele in schimb exista si muzeele asa le denumesc

iar "pietrele" cu pricina sunt niste obiecte transparente asemanatoare lupelor

agree  Mihaela Ghiuzeli: Seamana bine cu o lupa. Sa speram ca nu are si magnifying glass" pentru ca va fi greu de diferentiat.
