Magnifiers for the visually impaired

Magnification provides compensation for low vision. “Low vision” is a medical term that is defined as chronic disabling visual impairments that cannot be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, or medical or surgical treatment. Eighty percent of people with low vision are over the age of sixty-five, and most of them developed low vision late in life.

Children have the ability to change their eyes’ focus over a large range, so they can get extremely close to an object and still keep it in focus. However, adults lose that ability because of the hardening of the eyes’ lenses with age. Consequently, many adults require strong glasses or magnifiers to focus on closely viewed objects.
