Screen Magnifiers

Screen magnifiers are available for your computer, your TV, cell phone and laptop.

Some devices continue to get smaller like cell phones and laptop computers, while other electronics continue to get bigger like TV's. There are aids that can help to make letters crisper, pictures more detailed, numbers larger and images less blurry.

Screen Magnifiers for TVs

You may not be ready to upgrade to a large TV screen like my husband's friend who just installed a 55" flat screen TV.

Before you do that consider a television screen magnifier.

TV magnifiers can be either a simple gadget you easily install in front of your TV or magnifying TV glasses that you can take with you wherever you go.

Most of them are high quality and offer distortion free magnification.

Cell Phone Magnifier

A cell phone magnifier will enable you to see the names and numbers listed on your cell phone display and help you read text messages. My friend Vicky accidentally called me last week thinking she was calling Linda and not Leslie. Maybe that has happened to you because you can't quite see the display on your cell phone.

Did you know that there is an easy solution?

Maxiaids offers a magnifier that can be used on any small electronic device that measures 2 3/4" or less.

It magnifiers 2X to 2.5X. Not only can it be used for a cell phone, it can also magnify your iPod, Blackberry or other hand held electronic device.
