Optics for short distances

There are many different solutions to give better vision at near distance. Common to all is that it magnifies the image in some way.

The simplest way to achieve magnification is of course a magnifying glass. In this section, there are aids that is put in a frame that you wear like normal glasses.

The big advantage of having the magnification in the frames is that you have both hands free. This also make these solutions suitable to people without visual impairment that need to see small details but still need both hands.

What solution is the best is depending on several factors:

  • The degree of visual impairment.
  • Is the solution intended for binocular use.
  • In what situations do you need near vision.

When starting using a near vision aid we need to be aware of some adaption time might be needed. It can also be necessary to change the behavior when reading or working at near distance.
