My 86 year old mother has AMD, COPD & is oxygen dependent. Her tank will run out and she is not aware. The assisted living staff do not always catch it in time to prevent this. Is there a low vision friendly adaption to the regulator that talks or beeps an alert - like with the bp monitors and glucometers for low vision people? I have searched the internet & found nothing to date. thanks in advance, Jill

Hi! My 96 year old mother has prescription glasses for reading but her eyes get very tired and she is an avid reader. We're thinking that a magnifying glass of some sort will help. Can you recommend a model and degree of magnification? Thank you for your help, Debbie

Hello,

As each person is unique, so is their eye condition. I would advise that you pay a visit to our visual aids store, and let your mother try several different types of magnifiers to see which strength and type of magnifier will best meet her needs. We are located at 123 State Street in uptown New Orleans. You can also call the store at (504) 899-4501 (ext. 228) Good luck, Roxy
