Patients should work with a low-vision specialist to determine the best tools and how to use them. In many cases, patients will find vision aids that allow them to maintain independence.

  • Miniature telescopes. These telescopes, hand-held or mounted on eyeglasses, help a person see at a distance, such as across a road or a television across the room.
  • Video magnifiers. They use a camera and a video screen to enlarge printed material, pictures or small objects. Some are portable, and some can be used with a computer or monitor.
  • "Talking" tools. Alarm clocks, watches, timers, thermometers, scales, prescription bottles and blood sugar meters that "talk" help with daily tasks.
  • Computer software programs. Software is available that can magnify text on a computer screen. Speech systems include computers that read aloud what's on the screen. Scanning devices can read printed text.
  • Closed-circuit TV systems. They project an enlarged image onto a video screen to help with reading books, magazines and other materials.
