How do you clean the screen of low vision devices?

Going out and about with one of the transportable reading devices or touching the screen could leave dust, dirt, and oils from your fingers. The dirt and smudges could make it more difficult for your eyes to see what is on the screen. To clean the screens of these optical devices, use a clean microfiber cloth. Make small circular motions with the cloth across the screen. If there is a sticky substance on the screen, use a mixture of one part white vinegar to ten parts water. Lightly spray the microfiber cloth and rub the cloth on the screen.
