Our magnification solutions come in a variety of forms to suit your needs. Before buying a magnifier you need to know what magnification strength you require and what the reading task is. A low vision aid assessment is required to determine what strength and type of magnifier suits. This can be done here at our offices or at your local eye hospital by appointment. Alternatively, our range of electronic video magnifiers may be ideal for you!
