The Carroll Store Tech Talk, Episode 2: Understanding Magnification

A New Vision-Related Virtual Assistive Technology Series

The Carroll Store’s all-new monthly virtual vision-related assistive technology series allows you can discover all sorts of high- and low-tech gadgets and devices to help you maximize your independence. This series is perfect for people who want to learn about the latest blindness and low vision products; from specialized equipment to off-the-shelf solutions. Each month we’ll be featuring either a product demonstration from guests or an informational presentation from our own team of vision experts. The Carroll Store Tech Talk series is the best way to discover the solutions you need to make an impact in your daily life without ever needing to leave the comfort of your home office. The best part? It’s FREE for you to attend.

When glasses alone are no longer sufficient, magnification devices often have the power to help. For individuals with vision difficulties, it is possible to accomplish tasks otherwise thought to be impossible with the proper assessment, devices, and instruction.

To better understand how magnification can help, Bob McGillivray, Certified Low Vision Therapist at the Carroll Center for the Blind, will join us on February 5, 2021 at 2:00 P.M. EST for Carroll Store Tech Talk, Episode 2: Understanding Magnification. In this episode, we will explore the basics of magnification, what its limitations are, how to adapt to these limitations, and how magnification can help you use your vision to its greatest potential.
