February is Low Vision Awareness Month

Each Day Brings New Hope, As Well As New Top-Quality Vision Aids
Designed to Help Folks with Low Vision Lead More Independent Lives

Low vision impacts approximately 11 million Americans – and it doesn’t discriminate based on age or gender. It is estimated that 1 in 12 people over the age of 40 will experience low vision, making it the leading cause of vision loss in adults over 40.

If you have low vision, there is help and there is hope. What’s more, there are solutions available to help you see better and live more independently, including specialized glasses, medications (if applicable to you), and superb low vision aids designed to improve and elevate your everyday life.

Assess Your Needs to Bring the Most Helpful Vision Aids into Your Life

  Orcam MyEye Smart
Before you buy any type of visual aid assess what your day-to-day needs are. This process is as simple as asking yourself things such as, “What am I trying to accomplish?”, “Do my eyes trouble me enough that it interferes with my everyday living?”, “Am I missing details while reading or watching TV?”, “ Do I have difficulty driving at night?”, “Are there any visual activities in which I participate in that can be improved by better eyesight?”   


Adapt Your Surroundings

A lot of simple changes and visual impairment aids, such as a Talking Watch,
can be brought into your life relatively quickly when you are open-minded about how things in your home should look and operate, as well as your welcoming of new and helpful products. 

For example, make sure that all of your kitchen appliances are labeled so they can be accessed and used easily. Don’t hesitate to ask others for help when trying to improve things at home; after all, one person alone cannot do everything themselves! And turn to visually impaired products such as Low Vision Magnifiers, a Call Button Kit, and so very much more.


Visually Impaired Products / Vision Aids You’ll Simply Love!

There are tons of great products that are designed specifically to help make life so much easier for those with low vision.

Try a Giant Calendar. With a Large Print Calendar, there'll be no more squinting and struggling to see the calendar or write notes for any particular day!

A Talking Color Detector offers you a wide range of useful applications - from checking the color of clothing to the ripeness of fruit.


Need a Walking Stick or Cane to help get around? No problem! Get one that is comfortable and portable and easy to use.

This Low Vision Month, go for it – make some simple changes you need for a more independent life. And always feel great about yourself and your capabilities!
