Low Vision Devices

For Persons with Low Vision

Reading Devices

These devices may help a person with a vision loss to be able to read again. For some people, "reading" may mean reading the newspaper, a magazine, or a book. For many others, however, "reading" may merely mean reading very brief items such as the thermostat, a bill, a prescription bottle, or a label on a can of food. Each of the devices shown here may help with reading, whatever your definition of that may be.

Some of the devices that may assist with this include strong reading glasses, clip-on loupes to be worn over the person's glasses, illuminated stand magnifiers (that rest flat on the page, so that the person does not need to hold the magnifier), illuminated hand held magnifiers, and closed circuit TV systems (or video/electronic magnifiers), which include both desk top units and portable hand held units.

Glare Shields

Persons with macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other eye conditions are often bothered by glare, such as from the sun, snow, or even when sitting next to a window. Regular sunglasses may actually make things too dark, and often do not provide sufficient contrast to see faces, stairs, and detail sufficiently. They may also not block out the harmful "blue light" that may unfortunately lead to further macular degeneration. We offer special Glare Shields, which help reduce bothersome glare yet retain excellent contrast. They will also block out harmful "blue light" and UV rays which may lead to further macular degeneration. These Glare Shields are available at a very reasonable cost, and may be one of the most helpful things you can get.
