TV Viewer Glasses

Service Impact

Julia a member of Croydon Vision contacted the resource manager for support, she was having problems watching her TV. The pictures on the screen were all out of focus due to her eye condition; distance vision.

I recommended to Julia the Max TV glasses, the glasses act as mini binoculars to enhance magnification from a distance. Each lens can be adjusted separately to get the best magnification for each eye. The glasses focus on object from 3m to infinity, a fantastic low vision aid.

Julia took my advice and bought herself a pair after seeing Fiona at the Low Vision clinic. With the glasses she is now able to enjoy watching TV again.
