When you need a higher level of magnification, video magnifiers are the best option. When stronger magnification is needed, a traditional handheld magnifier will have a smaller viewing area. This means you may only see one to two letters at a time which would make it very difficult to try to read for an extended amount of time.
A video magnifier uses a camera and a video screen allow for much higher levels of magnification. They are capable of ranges from 3x to over 50 times magnification. These devices also have the ability to adjust contrast and brightness that will make it easier to read something that has poor contrast. A video magnifier has so many uses. Viewing color photographs for family members, writing letters, reading medication labels, reading recipes, or viewing your face to apply makeup or shave are just a few of the things that you can use this device for.
There are desktop versions with a stand-mounted camera or more portable handheld versions that come in a variety of screen sizes. Some can allow for distance viewing, can be compatible with a computer or have OCR capabilities to scan and read to you! Let us show you all the things this device can do for you.
