Years ago I worked in the optical trade and made some close up filters for myself from Hoya ophthalmic lenses (+1, +2 and +3 dioptres).
Although they were not ideal being a convex/concave design rather than biconvex I still got some good results from them. I would presume that commercially made ones would be even better.
I moved on from them to use bellows and also a reversing ring.

If you have one watch you know what the time is. But if you have two you don't know which one is right. The more advice you get the more confusing it becomes...
