Magnifiers in this section have a neck cord which enables the magnifier to rest on the chest leaving the hands free. Some incorporate an integral lens, giving greater magnification.
As these magnifiers are designed for hands-free use resting on your chest they may be ideal if you have reduced grip or shaky hands. If possible 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
