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.
