Wear your glasses, use a magnifier, or get bigger stuff! It’s easier to pick up a 5-button remote than to remember where I put my glasses. I found two remote controls for low vision seniors.

The buttons are just for the essentials. This is what they do:

This TV remote answers the question, “Why do I need all these buttons?”
The answer is: “You don’t.” You just need five.
