February is Low Vision Awareness Month

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.

New Year's Resolutions for 2019 from MaxiAids

MaxiAids

All of us at MaxiAids would like to wish you a healthy and happy New Year. To make sure we start off 2019 just right, here are a few New Year's Resolutions to try to live by.... Below are ways we can help you stick to your New Year's Resolutions and healthy habits, and we hope that these suggested tips make a positive difference both this year and beyond.

New Year's Resolution: STAY ACTIVE

Resolution Solution: Portable exercise equipment to keep you moving all year 'round 

Exercise Exercise Exercise Exercise

Add a little more exercise to your daily living routine.  This may seem like a tough challenge during these long winter months when we're feeling lazy, but spending more time indoors doesn't mean we have to be inactive.  When this happens, you can pick up one of these portable and affordable exercise peddlers or stretch exercise bands that you can use whenever you have a few extra minutes to spare at home, on vacation or even at the office.

New Year's Resolution: THINK POSITIVE

Resolution Solution: Light Therapy

Day Light Classic Plus Light Therapy Happy Light Liberty 10k Natural Spectrum Energy Light

Some people experience bouts of depression during the wintertime, but you can help ease seasonal mood swings and push those winter blues away.  One way to alleviate this is to make sure you surround yourself with plenty of light to combat the shorter days and longer nights. Beat the effects of seasonal changes, jetlag and working odd shifts on the job. Improve your mood, energy level, focus and productivity. There are specialty lamps available that provide much-needed light therapy this time of year, and these lighting solutions can truly help improve your mood and keep you thinking positive in January 2019 and beyond. 

New Year's Resolution: GET ORGANIZED

Resolution Solution: Use Calendars, Clocks and Medication Management Systems for Written and Audiovisual Daily Reminders. With the calendar flipping over to start a new year, now is the perfect time to get rid of the clutter on your desk and give yourself a clean start for 2019. Getting organized may seem like an overwhelming task, but once you take a few steps in the right direction, you'll start to feel a whole lot better about managing important items in your daily life.

Calendars Reminder Rosie Automatic Pill Dispenser

MaxiAids offers amazing organization tools to really keep your life in order. Large print calendars like the 2019 Giant Appointment Calendar can really help you write down and remember important dates for events, meetings and doctor visits, while the Reminder Rosie Talking Alarm Clock with Personalized Voice Reminders enables you, your spouse or your caregiver to set up daily living reminders to help you manage your regular routine and take your medications at the right time.

Speaking of medication management, this is one area that every person should strive to stay organized while heading into a new year. It is extremely important to make sure you take all of your medications at the right time, and this Automatic Pill Dispenser does everything you need to ensure that your medicine is properly and securely delivered to you on time.

New Year's Resolution: GET REST

Resolution Solution: Get a good night's sleep to feel your best. 

Sleep Machines Tinnitus Sleep Therapy Pillows

Getting a good night's sleep is so important to feeling healthy, energetic and happy.  If sleep has become difficult or challenging, look to sleep sound machines and comfort pillows to help you get your Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's.  Finding the right support and comfort at night will help you get the rest you need.  

New Year's Resolution: EAT HEALTHY

Resolution Solution: Prepare healthy meals with fresh ingredients

Eating right keeps your immune system up and keeps you energized.  It's so habit forming in the winter to be drawn to those high carb "comfort" foods which can easily put on the pounds!  Look to a healthier meal plan and spend those extra indoor hours experimenting with new recipes.  With just the right cooking tools, you will succeed in the kitchen and have fun preparing healthy meals.

New Year's Resolution: SHOW GRATITUDE

Resolution Solution: Be supportive of others and thank those who help you for their kindness.

Now is the perfect time to reflect on the people who are closest to you, as well as family, friends, caretakers, aids, teachers, coworkers and others who have supported you throughout the past year. Keep a piece of paper and pen with you and whenever you think of someone, list their name on the paper. Write down two or three positive things that you would like to tell them, and when you see them again, share your sentiments with them. This is a wonderful way to start off 2019 on the right foot with all of the people in your life who love and care for you, and they will surely cherish your words of gratitude and encouragement.

We at MaxiAids will continue to strive to help our amazing and loyal customers. We are here to help with all of your needs, and we truly appreciate your continued support.

We wish everyone a Happy New Year, and we are proud to serve you and be there for you in 2019!
