Can I get help to use my magnifier?

A low vision assessment is the best way to get advice and also determine what magnifier you need and how to use it. You can get an assessment from your local Low Vision Centre.  Your local resource centre should also be able to help you.

You can find your local centre on Sightline by entering your postcode and the search words "low vision" or "resource centre".

We've also produced a top tips sheet on magnifiers which you may find helpful:

For more information and advice on finding a magnifier, your local resource centre or the possibility of getting a grant from RNIB for a magnifier please contact our Helpline:
