For adults with glaucoma who read slower when reading silently for long periods of time and are more likely to have their reading speed decrease over time, possibly as a result of reading fatigue –the iPad, nook or Kindle e-reader may be of help! According to a recent study published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science glaucoma patients benefit from e-readers due to greater contrast ad font size adjustments that make the displays easier to use. This study suggests that technological solutions such as e-readers along with the apps that are developed for them may very well help glaucoma patients read more comfortably.
