Several types of aids are broadly categorised as reading aids for people living with low or no vision. These include:

Lamps and lighting (link opens in new window)

Increasing the amount of light is one of the best ways to immediately improve your ability to read printed material.

  • Ceiling lights provide an overall ambient light
  • Floor lamps also create an overall ambient light, but are usually free-standing on and can be positioned in different areas of a room to create more targeted areas of light.
  • Directional reading lamps usually include a moveable arm to direct light to a specific area. These can be floor or desk standing or even clip onto a book for highly focused light
  • Head lamps or torches, worn on the head with an elasticated band are useful if you are away from home.

Magnifiers (link opens in new window)

  • Handheld magnifiers are lightweight, popular and easy to use
  • Freestanding or desktop magnifiers enable you to undertake tasks without needing to hold the magnifier in your hand
  • Illuminated magnifiers can be either handheld or desktop. They are combined with a light, which casts directly on a focal area, without creating shadows
