Eye assistance

I like carving standing (so far, I'm barely starting), but often have to bend over to see what I'm doing. If I really need to see, I sit down, take my glasses off and lean in close (nearsighted) to do the fiddly bit. I'm so nearsighted that the next step is to hunt for my glasses before standing up.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent telescopic magnifier? I have several different clip-on magnifiers, but they are set up for closer work than carving while standing.
