During 1990-1991 263 low-vision aids were prescribed to visually impaired elderly people. 22% of them did not use their magnifying systems. With the help of a low-vision trainer, who taught them how to use their magnifying system correctly, the failure rate could be remarkably reduced. In 1992, low-vision aids were prescribed to 121 of 158 patients; 110 of these patients had low-vision training. Only 3% of them failed to use the magnifying system.
