We see through different lenses.
We see in new ways.
Does your vision prevent you from enjoying activities?
Can you read regular print in newspapers, magazines, or books?
Do you have difficulty reading labels at the supermarket?
Do you have any discomfort around very bright or dim light?
What about symptoms like blurred vision, double, distorted images, dark or white spots?
How about difficulty seeing faces, seeing colors, or reduced peripheral vision?
You might have a type of vision loss we call low vision.
Low vision is a term we use when describing someone who has significant visual impairment that can’t be corrected with common go-to solutions like glasses, medications, or surgery. This kind of vision loss doesn’t mean you need to stop cooking, exercising, shopping, socializing, or enjoying a good book. You can live your life to the fullest, even with low vision.
Vision aids come in an array of strengths and designs. The vision aid you might need depends on the type of vision loss you have, the degree of loss, the effect of light and glare, and your ability to handle and operate the aid.
Electronic Magnifiers – for anyone looking for more than an optical magnifier, the ultra-portable Explore line is designed for active people on the go. It offers handheld, variable magnification, contrast enhancement, and a wide screen. Compact, smart, and easy to use, Explorē magnifiers will give you the independence you desire to complete daily tasks; whether at a restaurant or the library, shopping or at work, reading, viewing pictures, or even signing documents.
Lighting solutions – the aging eye needs up to three times more light to perform daily tasks. And people with vision loss require significantly more light. Ottlite Illumination is specifically formulated to bring the clarity and detail of natural daylight indoors. It offers low heat and low glare illumination to dramatically reduce eyestrain. Plus, it offers task lighting, which means it can be aimed directly at whatever needs illumination.

Our Cocoons fit-overs are perfectly adapted to suit the many ways you spend your time.
