Please Note: In no way am I selling any of these products. I am merely endorsing their value and usefulness to the visually impaired as I successfully function daily with their use.
Technology and low-vision aids have certainly been my savior on a daily basis as I cope with an eye disease. Without the assistance of low-vision aids I know I would be lost. I cannot emphasize how important low-vision aids can benefit individuals with low vision on a daily basis, and the importance of seeking professional guidance in acquiring low-vision aids.
CNIB provided the best resource and low vision assistance for me. First I contacted a low-vision specialist with CNIB. He visited me directly in my home and brought many low-vision devices for me to try. The most valuable low vision device to me was the CCTV.
(Pictured to the right). This is a table-top model that allows you to magnify to any size any books or documents you are needing to read. As you can see by the picture (to the right) the CCTV can be used for more than just magnifying small print.
