Products in this section are built into a spectacle frame, attach or clip to existing spectacles, or are supported on a headband. Some lenses are designed so they can flip away from the eyes when not in use.
As these magnifiers are spectacle or headband mounted you have your hands free, they may be particularly suitable if you have reduced grip or shaky hands which make holding a handheld magnifier difficult. A range of magnification levels are available, we recommend you try the magnifier before purchase.
For help choosing the right magnification device consult a low vision service. Contact your local social services department or the RNIB Helpline 0303 123 9999. For more information visit the RNIB's magnifier page or the Partially sighted society www.partsight.org.uk
