Magnification

Low vision magnifiers are only one piece of the solution for low vision and must be chosen carefully. While the right magnifier can help, the wrong magnifier can be frustrating.

A note on magnification: Once we move past 4X or 5X in magnification power, magnifiers get increasingly more difficult to use as their size and "field of vision" gets smaller, and their "focal distance" (the distance a magnifier must be hold to the page) gets shorter and shorter. We now offer higher strengths than this, but we also strongly recommend working with a low vision eye care professional to help you find just the right strength and help you with training in how to use your new magnifier. SightConnection is always happy to find whatever resources we can to help you with magnification, so please feel free to give us a call or send an e-mail!
