I mean in general. I've noticed that the glasses are often pour grade and do not magnify enough to do much difference.

In my opinion they are pretty good for basic grade levels, but as you get older they start to be pretty pointless.

According to me, magnifying glasses are really useful.

The Newtons and friends were taking tea
Beneath the boughs of an apple tree,
When a falling fruit landed on the
Head of the head of the family.
Mrs. Newton cried, 'Well deary me!
That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.
