Magnification devices come in a wide range of sizes, powers, and capabilities. Successful use of a magnifier results not only from being paired with the appropriate device for one's vision, but also from training in proper use and care of the device. Consumers are encouraged to seek professional assistance and training from a Certified Low Vision Therapist before purchasing magnification devices. Contact MAB for additional information.
