23 February 2017 - Magnification and Illumination

Edmonds & Slatter Opticians has recently refreshed its range of magnifiers and supporting products from leading manufacturer Eschenbach. This, along with the recent relaunch of their Home Eye Testing service, continues their mission to make good vision accessible to all.

For some people, the deterioration of their sight may have reached a point that no matter what type of spectacles are worn, a full and clear visual correction is no longer possible. Nowadays a good quality of life is still available for people who have limiting conditions such as macular degeneration or cataracts.  By combining spectacles with a good quality visual aid, those affected can often retain their visual freedom for far longer than they would have otherwise.  

Magnifiers and visual aids are no longer restricted to the heavy Sherlock Holmes style spy glasses they once were, and if your hands are not as steady as they once were, suitable aids are also available.

The Powerlux magnifier is designed to be held like a computer mouse and moved gently across the page. The award winning design is suitable for left or right handed people with the specially designed shape giving comfort and ease of use.

The Scribolux is the only illuminated stand magnifier sold in the UK designed specifically with writing in mind. It has a large viewing area under the stand mounted lens, which perfect for small writing tasks such as writing postcards to friends and family, or completing the daily crossword.

Another problem for some patients is difficulty reading subtitles or watching quiz shows. Eschenbach's MaxTV Clip is a clip-on spectacle magnifier designed specifically for TV viewing.  The MaxTV is clipped on to your prescription pair of spectacles effectively doubling the size of your TV screen, allowing you to watch your favourite shows at a comfortable viewing distance. It can also be used at sporting events, the cinema, the theatre, bird watching or any other activity that requires magnification.

These are just a taster of Edmonds and Slatter’s new range of low vision aids, which includes illuminated pocket magnifiers and even a high quality LED reading lamp. Clarity of vision can also be vastly improved by something as small and simple as illumination! Please contact Edmonds and Slatter Opticans at Blaby, Glenfield or Lutterworth for more information, or a demonstration of their magnification and low vision product range.
