When you are faced with low vision, there are options for continuing the activities you like to do. Most individuals start out with large-print books, the use of a magnifier, improved lighting and using high contrast materials, such as black pen on white paper so the writing stands out more.
Our office can refer you for a low vision assessment at the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), where they can suggest a variety of additional aids and support to help maintain your independence.
There are also options available online for those who like to use their computer depending on the system that you use. Click here to find an example of what is offered from Microsoft: screen magnifiers, speech recognition, talking word processors, screen readers, etc.
