Stand Magnifiers

Professional grade stand magnifiers come in many styles and powers.  They can vary from 2X up to 15X.  For people with tremors they are sometimes easier to use than hand magnifiers because they are used directly in contact with the page.  This also allows them to be held at a precise distance for stable magnification.  Low vision patients often ask if a magnifier can cover an entire page.  The answer is yes, but only in very low powers which are not adequate for people with decreased vision.
