National Low Vision Wearable Glasses Month
September is National Low Vision Wearable Glasses Month.
“What wheelchair is to someone who has trouble walking, so electronic video magnification technology is to someone who has trouble seeing.” -Scott Krug, President, New England Low Vision and Blindness
As recently published in the New England Low Vision and Blindness white paper ‘You’ve been diagnosed with Macular Degeneration – Now What?’, video magnification technology is a fundamental tool for any patient needing low vision rehabilitation. For someone who has trouble walking, one may initially try a cane, or crutches or a walker. For someone who has trouble seeing, one may initially try a magnifying glass. However, often more “firepower” is needed. For someone who has trouble walking, if a cane, or crutches or a walker does not fully help, then the next step is to use a wheelchair.
Wearable Glasses is one of three (3) categories for electronic magnification – portables and desktops are the other two. Wearable electronic video magnification is often used for the one task that is not accomplished by either non-portable or portable electronic video magnification. Some examples are theatre, movies, stadium viewing, school performances, sightseeing, sheet music, business or classroom viewing and seeing people faces.
Some of our experts have said wearable technology is the future to help those with vision loss live an active lifestyle. Our wearable options make it possible for those with low vision to see and take part in everyday tasks, such as reading and being able to see a loved ones face.
It is very important to receive a no-obligation thorough and full demonstration of multiple types of electronic video magnification prior to making a purchasing decision. Make an appointment with a local assistive technology company, who specializes in the top electronic video magnification technology low vision aids for people with Macular Degeneration.
