I think the 12-inch screen is great. It’s a good size and still easily portable. The stand gives you so much since you can write under it and you don’t need to lean in to use it. It brings the screen closer, meaning you can have good posture without needing as much magnification. Lots of people need a magnifier at home and work; it’s the ideal solution.

As a wet AMD patient awaiting cataract surgery, optical magnifiers were of little use to me. However, after trying the explore 12, I was amazed at what I could read compared to prescription glasses alone. The white-on-black feature is my favorite because it soothes the effects of my photophobia, and I love the device's ease of use and portability. It makes my life 1000 times better.
