February is Low Vision Awareness Month

selective focus photography of human eye

Low vision affects millions of Americans every day, making it hard to read, cook, shop, drive, write and enjoy hobbies.  This condition cannot be cured with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications, or surgery.

MaxiAids can help those who have vision challenges live a fulfilling, happy, and independent life and enjoy everyday activities to the fullest. MaxiAids specializes in low vision products and has become a main shopping source for millions of people with low vision and visual impairment, offering thousands of items specifically designed to be affordable and easily available.

All ages young and old are effected by low vison. Some of the leading causes of vision loss in older adults are age-related macular degeneration, strokes, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma. Vision loss in younger people can be caused by inherited eye conditions, infectious and autoimmune eye diseases, or trauma.

According to the National Eye Institute, "People with low vision aren’t blind, but because of their vision loss, they may not be able to do everyday tasks like driving or reading. People with low vision — and their families — need to know how they can prevent further vision loss, make the most of their remaining vision, and maintain their independence."

Manage low vision with helpful products from MaxiAids that enhance, clarify, brighten, and magnify.

Talking watches can provide independence in your daily life, and MaxiAids’ selection of VocaTime Talking Watches is the ultimate independent aid. Available in a variety of men’s, women’s and children’s styles and colors, VocaTime Talking Watches are perfect for the deaf, blind and visually impaired.

VocaTime Talking Watches coordinate voice commands with the watch’s hour and minute hands automatically. What makes the VocaTime watch so unique is that it perfectly matches the voice with the watch’s hands for accurate timekeeping. There’s also a Dual Voice feature, which enables you to choose between a male or female voice. 

Not only does MaxiAids carry sophisticated men’s styles and fashion-forward women’s styles, we also have an Adjustable EZ Latch Cloth Band available to fit children’s wrists. VocaTime children’s bands come in a variety of fun colors that are suitable for children’s tastes, such as purple, pink and blue.

VocaTime Talking Watches, which are exclusively available at MaxiAids, allow for the utmost convenience with their single-battery and one-button operation. If you know your voice won’t be used for an extended period of time, there’s a sleep mode setting that can be turned on to save battery life. If your VocaTime watch isn’t running when you receive it, it may already be in sleep mode. To make active, press the S1 button for a few seconds or until the hands begin moving. 

You can always call 1-800-522-6294 during regular business hours to talk to one of our knowledgeable, experienced customer care representatives about VocaTime Watches, or our large inventory of Talking Watches. We can also answer any questions you may have about any of the products for independent living that MaxiAids carries.
