(PRWEB UK) 22 January 2013
A newly updated website aims to help the many people who develop a vision loss and who are unaware of what is available to help them and where to go to find it with two unique online tools. As the population ages the number of people suffering with Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and other eye diseases will continue to rise. The number of people with AMD, for example, is set to increase by a third by 2020.
Trying to find something to help with loss of vision can be a daunting experience. Once a source of products is found, deciding which magnifier may be of help can be a minefield too. Vision Enhancers aims to ease the journey by providing a number of tools on its easy-to-use website http://www.visionenhancers.co.uk to guide people through the process.
Secure Online Purchasing
What is more, because using the internet, particularly for payments, can be a concern, Vision Enhancers have ensured that their website has the highest level Extended Validation SSL Certification to provide peace of mind for their customers. It is easy to spot this Extended Security Validation by looking at the top box of the web page containing the website address to see if it goes green when entering personal details and payment information. The ‘green bar’ as it is known gives a visual signal that a website has the highest level of security protection. It can be useful to check this when visiting other websites.
Vision Enhancers website, with advice and tips from a Hospital Optometrist, a Consultant Ophthalmologist and a Rehabilitation for the Visually Impaired Specialist, provides access to a host of products designed especially to help with vision loss. With many different types of magnifying glass and vision aid available from the website visitors are likely to be able to find something to help without needing to spend time trawling many different sites and catalogues. Vision Enhancers website also includes innovative new tools to help in selecting a magnifier from the many types available.
For those who don’t know where to start, the first step is to find out the level of magnification needed and the unique online Magnification Finder has been designed to guide the user to the most appropriate level of magnification for them. To help in the process there is a handy magnification demonstration so the user is able to view what they will see with the magnification strength they choose. All the products available in their chosen magnification can be accessed with one click on the ‘View Suitable Products’ button. Each product on the site also has a link back to the magnification demonstration so when the magnifier has been selected the patient is able to check what will be seen through the lens.
With the magnification level identified, the new product selection tool sets out a step by step guide to help in choosing a magnifier. Just a few short questions will help to identify the best solution for what the user would like to do. It will help to narrow down from the comprehensive range of hand, stand, folding and illuminated magnifiers, magnifying spectacles, clip-on’s, filter glasses, lighting, binoculars and telescopes available from Vision Enhancers. There are a vast number of devices which can be of help and it can take time and be difficult to decide what is best for the user’s needs. Vision Enhancers Product Selection Tool will guide them to the most appropriate items so that they can be reassured that what they choose should be right for their requirements. They can also be confident that the products on offer have been carefully chosen by optical experts from quality manufacturers and have been tried and tested in low vision clinics.
For extra reassurance the website is also verified by Safebuy as adhering to their web code of practice as well as having the Extended Validation SSL Certificate so visitors can be sure that they are in safe hands when using the site.
These tools and all the products are available, as well as a wealth of information on living with low vision and the leading eye conditions causing low vision, from Vision Enhancers website http://www.visionenhancers.co.uk. There is also a full-colour catalogue available for those who prefer a printed version which can be obtained by calling 0800 112 3695.
