Magnifiers For Low Vision In Vancouver Island
Magnifiers For Low Vision
What Are Low Vision Magnifiers?
Low Vision Magnifiers come in three different options: Handheld, Wearable, and Stand.
There are many options available today to assist the visually impaired with magnification. With both portable handheld devices and wearable devices, to assist with shopping and daily errands, as well as stand alone devices for those working with small text or the avid reader.
There is also magnification programs available for making computer work easier, such as Zoom Text.
Why Visit Our Practice For Magnifiers?
Our low vision doctor has a wealth of real world experience with low vision magnifiers. To the untrained eye all magnifiers may seem similar but in reality every patient needs to weigh carefully what magnifier will provide them the desired outcome.
While a small handheld magnifier is portable, it requires a steady hand which may be difficult for long periods of use such as reading. While stand magnifiers using CCTV technology provide unparalleled clarity of text, their size and expense may not make that the best option.
