Albany -- A big donation to the Lions Learning Center will help visually impaired people see better.
A magnasight reading machine was donated to the center by the family of Verna Belflower, an Albany woman who died recently.
The machine magnifies words up to 1,000 times.
It also helps with lighting, focus, and zooming in on words and photos.
"Made it bigger, it helped me read the words a little better," said Jennifer Houser
"Without this machine persons who are visually impaired are unable to read as the sighted read," said Collie Robinson.
A new reading machine like this can cost up to $5,000.
