Macular generation affects the central field of view essential to reading. These magnifiers can enlarge text so that the letters/words can be inferred even with the central field of view missing. At $9.95 this is a low cost solution but consult your eye care specialist to confirm they can help you.
The smaller magnifier, 30mm (1.25") has three 5X lenses that can be stacked to do 10X or 15X magnification. The larger magnifier, 50mm (2") can enlarge text by 10X; its larger field of view may be useful for some reading materials.
These magnifiers are not just for macular degeneration. They're good for kids and adults alike to look at flowers and leaves, rocks and insects.
