Low Vision Tip To Use When Eating <>

Posted: 10 Jun 2009 06:18 AM PDT

When eating, it is often helpful to use a contrasting color place mat. If the table is dark, the placemat should be a light color, and the plate should be yet another color which will show up against the light placemat. Reverse this for a light color table. Some handy place mats are available which are light on one side and dark on the other.
