Everyone needs good levels of light and as we get older these needs increase. As your eyes age, less light reaches the retina at the back of your eyes, which transmits information to your brain. Most people aged 60 need three times more light than when they were 20. Enhanced lighting can be extremely beneficial to people experiencing sight loss, however some eye conditions can result in glare problems even in normal light levels, which can be uncomfortable or even intolerable.
Magnify images and documents on a screen with an electronic magnifier (also known as CCTVs or video magnifiers). Portable models are ideal for taking out and about to read food labels, menus or bus timetables as they have built-in rechargeable batteries and a two-year warranty (unless otherwise stated).
Before buying a magnifier it’s important to know the magnification strength you require and what you’ll be using it for. For example, a pocket magnifier is ideal for spot reading labels and price tags, whereas a stand magnifier is suitable for longer periods of reading. When using a traditional, non-electronic handheld optical magnifier the lens should be held close to the eye and the object should be brought into focus by moving it towards the lens.

Where a product incurs a delivery charge this is highlighted in the product details and will be added to your order at checkout.
