Not All Magnifiers Are Created Equal

The most important vision aid for those with macular degeneration is a magnifier. They can be used for checking mail, reading a menu, catching a score, admiring a photograph, performing a hobby, or cooking in the kitchen.

Low vision or macular degeneration magnifiers come in all different styles, shapes, and powers. Selecting one that will work best for you or your loved one can be a challenge.

Here to give us some guidance on this important vision aid is Tim Gells from Eschenbach Optik. Eschenbach knows magnifiers. They have been in the magnifying business for more than 90 years.

He explains how Eschenbach magnifiers stand out from other low vision magnifiers and how to match the appropriate magnifier for the appropriate task.
