What strength magnifier do I need?

There are many types of magnifiers available.

It is very important that anyone using them understands and appreciates the potentials as well as the limitations of the full range available. Anyone with sight loss should have a low vision assessment before deciding on a magnifier.

Our Magnifier Solutions guide (available through our Helpline on 0303 123 9999) can help you identify the most appropriate level of magnification for your particular requirements, and understand the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of magnifier.
