    My mum loves to read, but she is struggling more and more. She has tried using a magnifying glass and better glasses, but she stills can’t see that well. can anyone suggest anything else, as it’s a great hobby for her and it’s making her miserable

    Hi there,

    How miserable for her. Only suggestsions I can offer are:
    Has she had her eyes checked out to ensure there’s nothing else going on so that any deterioration can be slowed down?
    A lot of books and newspapers now come in big print that can really help.
    RNIB have a big print book and magazine section and loan our books that are delivered to your door – check out their website.
    Failing which, talking books and newspaper are commonly available but .. I know, not the same!
    Good luck

    What about getting her a Kindle. I knew someone who could only read with a large magnify glass, but when he got a kindle and put it on the highest font he could read it clearly. He started devouring books again. Many classics are free as well
