Macular Degeneration Aids for the Kitchen Using Contrast, Convenience and Touch

With the holidays quickly approaching it's a time for gathering friends and family, sharing conversations around the dinner table and serving loved ones their favorite recipes.


Whether you are hosting a meal or bringing your well loved traditional dessert, you can make your kitchen a friendlier place by using contrast, touch and voice activation.

Enlarge your recipe instructions by increasing the font on your computer, ipad or Kindle Fire. Use easy to see large number measuring cups, ask Alexa to set your timer, and cut up your food on a cutting board that provides contrast. Add a stick on tactile bump to your oven for the bake mode.

Enjoy the convenience of providing guests with coffee, tea or hot cocoa by using a Keurig and pre-packaged pods.

Strategies that maximize your usable vision include contrast enhancement and large bold print while the sense of touch can help you find the start button on your dishwasher. Enjoy this time of year with friends and family by making your kitchen low vision friendly.
