What are magnifiers and lighting aids?

Magnifiers and lights are aids that enlarge or illuminate text to make it easier to read and write.

What are the benefits of magnifiers and lighting aids?

Using a magnifier or lighting aid whilst reading can help to reduce eye strain and headaches. Lights and magnifiers can also be used for a range of other crafts, such as sewing and writing.

What different magnifiers and lighting aids do you offer?

Magnifiers – we provide a folding desk magnifier that has a large square design so you can read large sections of text. It can be used in different positions and folds away when not in use. The floor standing magnifier features lights and an adjustable neck for better positioning. We also offer pendant magnifiers that have a neck cord, enabling you to use the magnifier hands free, and a hand-held magnifier with LED lights.

Night lights – we offer night lights that turn on when motion is detected. These are ideal to help you find your way in the dark, if you get up in the night, and are available in a wall fixing, plug-in or bar style. We also provide a remote-control bulb with colour and light adjustments that can be altered from your bed or chair to a brightness that suits you.

Lamps – we offer standing and desk lamps that illuminate your book or work, and make it clearer to read. All the lamps we provide have adjustable necks so you can change the direction of the light to best suit you.

What should I consider when choosing a magnifier or lighting aid?

Consider where you will be using the reading aid to ensure it is the right size or style. For example, we have tall floor standing lamps, ideal for reading in an armchair, or small lamps suitable for desk work.
