Optometrists Focusing on Magnifiers and Low Vision Devices


Helping Canadians with Vision Impairments Gain Independence 


At Home Assessments

This At-Home-Assessment in no way replaces the examination, assessment, counselling and training that normally is involved in a Low Vision Assessment by a Low Vision Optometrist.  It is recommended that anyone with vision problems seek out their Optometrist for assistance.

We realize that, for various reasons, Low Vision Optometrists are not available to every individual and as a result this At-Home-Assessment is designed to provide assistance in obtaining a close approximation of the magnification strength that may assist you until you are able to find a Low Vision Clinic.
