Yesterday she called to say that she's doing just fine now. The light and the magnifier are just what she needs.
I tell this story to encourage people who are not seeing well with their present glasses to return to their doctor. Bring the items that you're having trouble with and ask for more help. There may be an easy solution as in this case.
If you've been told that nothing can be done to help your vision that is when you should consult a low vision optometrist. Give me a call. I will be happy to discuss your vision with you and I will tell you if low vision glasses will help. Call 1 866 321-2030. There is more information on my website. www.VirginiaLowVision.com
