Low Vision Devices

Low vision devices include handheld telescopes (such as monoculars and binoculars), magnifiers, household items with enlarged text, and "talking" devices that can communicate their displays through audible speech. Magnifying devices are generally either handheld or mounted on a stand, with zoom ranges from 2x to 10x. Monoculars and binoculars are intended to help the user see items at a distance, often 15-30 feet away. These handheld telescopes are usually small enough to fit in the user's pocket. Some household items are available with enlarged print; these items include playing cards, remote controls, and keyboards. There are also devices with "talking" abilities, including a home thermostat.

Please note: you should see a low vision specialist to determine the right type of device or devices that will help you with the tasks you want to perform. Learn more on AFB's website for adults who are losing their sight, VisionAware.org.
