The way to tell them apart is the real glass ones have a blueish tint to the lens. You get what you pay for as the cheap plastic lenses scratch more easily and can be ruined with just a single drop of solvent. The DA-X OptiVISOR has true optical glass lenses that resist scratching and solvents.

Measure your working distance as a guide to which power to select - and consider adding the Lp-1 For example, if you would need to hold the item about 8 inches away to see the entire object and be close enough to see the details you would pick a DA-5 which has a 8" distance listed below.
