The Big Picture in a Small Package

More than ever, people with low vision are looking for a powerful yet lightweight tool to help them see clearly in their daily activities. Our latest innovation? The explorē 8, a Touchscreen HD handheld magnifier for active people who prefer a large screen but still want maximum portability. It is smaller, lighter and more affordable than most 7-inch magnifiers on the market while providing a screen more than 30% larger, designed to make life easier—and a whole lot clearer.

Delivering unmatched image quality, the explorē 8 features two 21-megapixel cameras—one for things less than 15 cm away like documents, books and newspapers, and a second camera for distance viewing away to see things like street and store signs.

The device boasts the largest screen in the smallest package, designed with the latest technology, innovative features and an easy to use touchscreen for unmatched mobility, comfort and convenience wherever you go.

Lightweight device loaded with next-level features

The explorē 8 may be compact but it packs a powerful punch, with a large Ultra HD screen for easy reading and a host of other cutting-edge features to help keep things in focus when you’re on the move.
