I fell normal because I can read the newspaper, books, documents, even my checkbook balances. I can read the active ingredients in my medicine bottle without any difficulty. I think this machine is a godsend.
Reading is an important part of my life, and I wasn't about to give it up. I wanted to see first-hand what equipment would perform the best. Since my purchase I have experienced a strong return on my investment --- so much so, that I bought a second one for my home in Florida to help me maintain my independence.
It is for me so necessary in my life. The image quality of the video magnifier is very important when I am looking at photographs or even medicine. It makes you happy, it's really super.
