What are Low Vision Devices?

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.
