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.

Why should you choose Dr. Lucy for your Low Vision evaluation and care?

I took my daughter in for a check up and the experience was wonderful. Dr. Yen was very helpful and was able to convince my teenager to not look at her IPad so much, and it WORKED! Eye Luv Lucy has so many interesting artisan frames that are not found...

Love the unique frames and selections that I can't find else where. The exam was very high tech and streamlined. I got my glasses in record time with blue light glare coating for computer screen protection. I feel much better than I used to be not straining my eyes again!...
