Optic aids were small glass implements that provided visual assistance in reading or inspecting small details.[1][2]

DescriptionEdit

There were several types of optic aids available in the Realms. The most commonly available ones were the following:

Magnifying glass 
A hand-held tool to help inspecting small objects. It could also be used to start a fire, provided that sunlight and tinder were available.[2] A magnifying glass was a necessary equipment in a wizard's laboratory,[1] and it was also the material component for casting the sunbeam spell.[2] Some sets of thieves' tools also came equipped with magnifying glasses.[3]
Monocle 
A single lens that enhanced the vision for one eye.[1]
Spectacles 
A pair of lenses that hung over the user's nose. It was considered an odd implement.[1]
