High addition spectacles

High addition spectacles look like regular reading glasses while providing the required magnification. They leave both hands free and can be used for arts and crafts, needlework or embroidery. High addition spectacles don’t weigh much, are unobtrusive and can be used while on the go. In combination with a reading stand and a sufficiently bright lamp (see “Low vision lighting”), they can significantly improve visual performance and ensure relaxed reading comfort.
