On About.com, part of The New York Times Company, Andrew Leibs has written an enthusiastic review of the unique Optelec Compact 5 HD. This compact and light electronic magnifier enlarges seamlessly from 1.5 to 18 times. This allows people with mild eyesight problems as well as those who are seriously visually impaired to read texts with ease.
Andrew Leibs called the sleek design, the ease of use, for example the large menu icons, the lighting and the display ‘exceptional’. Leibs: ‘It's the sort of device anyone with low vision will flip open every day, and keep with them wherever they go.’
