What are Low Vision Devices?
Low vision devices are designed to magnify images so
individuals who are visually impaired may have the
opportunity to read normal size printed materials such as the
local newspaper. Low vision devices are also called
magnifiers or aids. Magnifiers can be designed as handheld,
spectacle mounted or electro-optical. The low vision
provider's goal is to show a person who is visually impaired
that they can get improved vision at either distance or near
using devices that magnify.
