Joseph Robinson, Pacific northwest territory manager with Eschenbach Optiks, demonstrates both a handheld and desktop video magnifier during an information session  Nov. 14 at Huddlestun Senior Centre in Pincher Creek. Joseph also showcased a wide variety of other devices for visual assistance, including stand magnifiers, spectacle magnifiers and telescopes.

Organized by Dr. Laura Chisholm, the Pincher-Cowley Roaring Lions and Eschenbach Optiks, the session was intended as a way for locals to get a first-hand look at some of the many visual aids on the market to help those experiencing vision loss or impairment. Locals were able to try the devices, while Joseph and Laura answered the questions of those interested in improving their vision or mitigating vision loss.
