This webinar targeted at service providers and individuals with low vision, explores the wide variety of nonoptical devices currently available including lighting options, filters/sunglasses, reading/bookstands and writing devices. Participants will receive strategies for analyzing various product features that can assist with matching the right tool to the individual and the task to be completed.
