Reading Glasses & Magnifiers with Light – Newest Innovations in Visual Aids


If you have been diagnosed with Macular Degeneration or find that your prescription glasses no longer seem to help with reading the newspaper, menus, or Rx bottles, there are other options available that you may not have been exposed to before. Moving beyond the traditional handheld magnifiers, consider a magnifier with a built-in light or possibly a digital magnifier that will not only provide the light you need, but can magnify up to 22 times (22x).

Reading glasses with light are amongst the most popular innovations to help you see more clearly. They are hands-free and will magnify what you are reading up to four times (4x). Depending on your needs, simply wearing indoor glasses with a yellow tinted lens may help in providing the additional clarity needed. These glasses may be worn with or without prescription glasses. These visual aids can help in reducing eye strain and are an improvement over the traditional glasses and magnifiers we have been using all this while.

For avid readers in need of magnification beyond five times(5x), often a digital magnifier with light is the solution. These can be handheld or tabletop and come in all shapes and sizes. It is best to speak with a professional, or better yet, try these products before making a purchase to determine which solution best fits your lifestyle. The Hearing and Vision Center has a team available to answer your questions and to help you make the best decision possible.
