What is the difference between the online Marketplace: Consumer Products / printed Daily Living Solutions Catalog and the online Professional Products / printed Products for Eye Care Professionals Catalog?

The Consumer Products: Daily Living Solutions consumer section offers a select assortment of products enabling those who are impacted by vision loss due to retinal eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy, to remain independent and enjoy life. We have carefully selected tools and aids within our Home & Office, Health & Personal Care and Recreation & Leisure categories that are simple, cover a variety of price points, and are easy to integrate into any daily routine. With the right tools, individuals with low vision can perform their daily activities, continue their hobbies, read, write and maintain employment.

We have developed a simple layout, organized by Magnifiers, Telescopes, Loupes, Spectacles, Absorptive lenses, Lamps, Charts & Assessments, and Kits & Accessories with informative product features and easy-to-read tables.

Additionally, Optelec recognizes the value of professional low vision rehabilitation by supporting a best practice model aligned with AOA, AAO, AOTA and AER. Therefore, requests for magnifiers and other professional prescriptive products with magnification over +8.0 Diopter are referred to our professional eye care network and not sold directly to the customer without a prescription. We have also highlighted various reward programs and services offered through the ShopLowVision Professional Eye Care Network.
