Reading and writing
Disruptions to reading and writing can affect your everyday life, from hobbies to work.
But there are ways to make it easier:
Using coloured paper can help you to write by increasing contrast. A thicker pen and a writing guide are also useful adjustments.
Magnifiers can help make books and magazines more readable. You can find a wide range of large print books and e-books in your local library.
Task lamps can help you to adapt the lighting in your room to suit your needs.
When using a computer, remember that you can change multiple features to make text easier to read. Screen adapters and lens filters can also help minimise glare from the screen while you work.
Voiceover apps and audiobooks are useful for when you want to give your eyes a break.
