What to know about the new EZ2See® Products and the Rochester entrepreneur behind them:
- Company owner and product creator Edward Cohen, who has a degenerative eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa, created the first edition of the calendar in 2016 after frustrations with other designs
- Cohen says many alternatives favor, “stylish graphics over readability and usability,” and can overwhelm or confuse those with declining vision or diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s
- The calendar uses only black ink with fonts that are 10 times larger than newsprint and note card-sized daily cells to make it easier to use for those with vision problems
- The 2021 edition of the calendar is available now through Prevent Products
The Quote: Edward Cohen, creator
“If you can use them, smartphone and PC-based digital calendars are wonderful tools, but if you can’t, or if you prefer the physicality or familiarity of a full-size, printed day planner, there’s no substitute.”

The EZ2See Products 2021 large-space, large-print, calendar/planner-finally a calendar you can see!™
Since the initial 2016 edition, creator and company owner Edward Cohen felt strongly about making EZ2See Products available nationwide, through a unified sales platform, to make the daily planner more widely available to customers who have been searching for an accessible solution.
“Some products use larger print, but the overall designs lack the suite of features needed by those with declining vision or who need an extra-large writing space,” Cohen says. “Large fonts alone are not enough.”
Driven by his own frustration with typical, well-intentioned but ineffective designs, Cohen systematically created a calendar/planner that met his needs. When he was done tweaking contrast, layout, and typography, associates wanted their own copies, so Cohen came out of retirement to start EZ2See Products.
“If you can use them, smartphone and PC-based digital calendars are wonderful tools,” says Cohen, “but if you can’t, or if you prefer the physicality or familiarity of a full-size, printed day planner, there’s no substitute.”
But available layouts favor stylish graphics over readability and usability. For those who have declining vision or are dealing with other challenges such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, otherwise attractive design elements often create clutter, take up space, and cause confusion.
Finally, a Calendar You Can See™
The EZ2See Large Print Weekly Calendar has full-size, 8.5- x 11-inch pages that are printed on heavy-weight paper and spiral-bound with a high-quality, laminated cover to ensure moisture resistance and durability.
Using only bold black ink—with fonts that are more than 10 times larger than newsprint—daily cells are nearly the size of two 3- x 5-inch index cards, and the black page borders mean no more writing off the edge of the page!
EZ2See’s calendar/planner also offers useful accessories including bold, no-bleed pens and EZ2See Sticky Notes. This is a company that literally uses the product it makes. See complete details and countless user testimonials at www.ez2seeproducts.com.
