I am legally blind also. I have almost no vision on the right,
with mostly light and shadows. It is 20/400 on the left, so
that is not much.
You MUST get an iPad, not one of the e-ink readers like Kindle
Or Sony. E-ink does not provide enough contrast between font
And background. The iPad is full colored and backlit, so that
You can reverse text to white on black with sharp contrast.
It works well. Just last evening I read National Geographic
With the near-infinite zoom. I could read the articles AND see
The photos. In sections, because I zoom in on different parts
Of the photos.
Anyway, go to a Best Buy or Walmart, so that you can try before you buy.
