The SAPPHIRE™ Portable Magnifier

(Discontinued 4/1/16) See Ruby 7

The best on-the-go low vision reading magnifier

Macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and other causes of vision loss no longer will prevent you from reading small print on menus, maps, receipts, pill bottles, and other items. With the battery-operated SAPPHIRE handheld magnifier, you can magnify reading and detailed illustrations from 3.4 to 16 times on a bright, high-contrast display screen while at the store, on trips near and far, and at home as you move from room to room.

A superior independent living aid to a clumsy magnifying glass

A sliding magnification bar makes it easy to adjust and readjust the SAPPHIRE pocket magnifier to the level you need for any size type in any situation. Easily go from reading the larger type on a contract or bill to the fine print - and back again. There's no frustrating distortion and readjusting when you move the SAPPHIRE like there is with a magnifying glass.

The SAPPHIRE sits flat for document reading - and quickly flips to magnify three-dimensional objects!

Open the SAPPHIRE top to magnify three-dimensional objects. Hold prescription bottles, box or canned food labels, and other objects above the camera for a magnified reading view. Use the Freeze Frame feature to take a video snapshot, so you can take time reading without holding the object still and in place.

Rotate the top of the SAPPHIRE backward for reading flat documents or books. Because the SAPPHIRE sits flat on your reading material, you won't experience hand fatigue while reading as you do with a heavy magnifying glass, and there's no shaking.

Elevate the SAPPHIRE with its built-in writing stand, and you have space to work under the camera with a small tool or the writing end of a pen or pencil. See your notes, letters, and checks magnified as you write them.

Ready to go

The SAPPHIRE electronic optical enhancement device (EOED) is ready to travel with its included carrying case.

Do you have difficulty reading black or grey letters on a white background?

Easily change the color of type and background until you can see type better. Change to white type on a black background, yellow type on a blue background, full color - or any of 23 type and background color combinations. The seven-inch LCD screen reduces glare from lamps and direct sunlight, making the SAPPHIRE a valuable reading aid.

Want to see even larger?

The SAPPHIRE connects with a video cable to your TV for its highest magnification. Imagine reading magnified text from books, letters, bills, and the phone book right on your TV screen - or viewing photos and working crossword puzzles that are displayed on a TV screen.

Reading Line and Masking

To make tracking easier when moving the SAPPHIRE across a page of text, the new version offers an adjustable Reading Line that can be positioned anywhere on the screen. New Reading Masks can be adjusted to block out everything but a single line of text, reducing glare for those who are light sensitive.

No computer knowledge is necessary to operate this easy-to-use vision aid.

The SAPPHIRE runs on batteries for four hours and is fully rechargeable.
