Macular degeneration is a common eye disease among elderly people. When people have macular degeneration, they will have some loss in their central vision. So the most important thing to do is to find out the way to save their existing vision. Macular degeneration will offer the very help they need. The following will give some introduction on macular degeneration devices in order to help people to benefit more from them.

When people are at their 40’s or 50’s, the macula, which is located in the center of the retina and in charge of the detail vision, will become weak. Therefore, people will have difficult in reading, playing cards, driving or other daily tasks. If macular degeneration is not treated in time, there will be more vision loss. Macular degeneration devices are used to maximize people’s remaining vision by the use of specially designed eyeglasses, computer programs and other technologies. With the help of those macular degeneration devices, people’s low vision can be improved to some extent, and they are able to enjoy reading or some daily tasks.

Bifocal reading glass is one of macular degeneration devices. With the help of bifocal reading glasses, people can see clearly no matter far away or close up as this kind of glass can change people’s vision field. Therefore, bifocal reading glasses are very popular among aged people worldwide.

Do you know there will be miniature telescopes on the eyeglass lenses? Yes, a miniature telescope can be placed behind or on top of the lens, so in this way, people can have two options. One is to look through the regular lens and benefit from the eye glass prescription, the other is to look through the telescopic lens to see detailed information clearly as there is an ultra magnification.

And for people who have macular degeneration but need to use computers, they can have specially designed monitor for help, as the monitor can magnify the front size and enable people to see clearly. Besides, there is also software for macular degeneration devices, which can transfer our sound into text. We can speak to the computer microphone, and then the sound will be transferred into text on the screen. Moreover, even people with no vision, they can also benefit from the program which can turn the test into Braille documents online.

Closed circuit television is also proved to be an effective macular degeneration device. We can put the right page under camera, and then the image will appear on our television screen, so that people can read and see them clearly.

Thanks for the great help given by macular degeneration devices. No matter what need you have caused by low vision due to macular degeneration, you can always find a satisfied macular degeneration device to satisfy your needs.
