Thank you Lioness but here in Ocala, Florida there is no literature, paraphanalia or anything in the different opthamalogist offices. When one asks for this it is ignored. There is no guidance. They know nothing of referring to a blind school private or government run. No one does not know how to put this together or will not be bothered to do this, No literature in the offices for the blind or the deaf. ( I have mentioned this a few times.) why? Please, am not looking to make any kind of trouble here but some one straighten me out.

Hello,
IN OCALA THERE IS THE FLORIDA CENTER FOR THE BLIND 352-873-4700 WHO HAVE SERVICES AND INFORMATION FOR LOW VISION . I DON’T KNOW WHERE IN OCALA YOU ARE BUT ST LUKES CATARACT AND LASER CLINIC TREATS BOTH EYE PROBLEMS AND HAS HEARING SERVICES WHERE THEY CAN TEST YOUR HEARING AND PRESCRIBE AIDS IF NECESSARY. MY OPHTHALMOLOGIST IS AT ST LUKES NEAR ME. I THINK IT WOULD BE A 45 MINUTE DRIVE FROM THE CITY OF OCALA.

THERE ARE NUMEROUS HAND HELD MAGNIFIERS OR ONES THAT YOU CAN WEAR AROUND YOUR NECK OR FOLD UP TO PUT IN YOUR POCKET. YOU CAN SEE SOME ON AMAZON. THERE ARE ALSO COMPUTER PROGRAMS THAT WILL ENHANCE THE SIZE OF YOUR SCREEN AND DEVICES THAT CAN BE HOOKED UP TO THE TV. YOU MAY NEED SOMEONE TO DO THE RESEARCH FOR YOU BUT THE FLORIDA CENTER FOR THE BLIND MAY BE A GOOD PLACE TO START.

IF THERE ARE NO DISCUSSIONS ON LOW VISION ON THIS MAYO FORUM , MAY I SUGGEST THAT YOU START ONE BY SIMPLY ASKING…DOES ANYONE HAVE LOW VISION? OUR WONDERFUL MENTORS CAN GUIDE YOU ON HOW TO DO THAT.
