All you need to know before getting yourself a pair of reading glasses!

Are you in your 40s and have problems reading newspapers, magazines and even the tiny letters on your screen. If you see the blurry letters when reading closely, it may be the time for you to get a pair of reading glasses.

Why do I need reading glasses?

You need reading glasses if you have to squint to read tiny letters on papers and screens or if you can’t see objects clearly that are 14 to 16 inches away from your eyes.

Reading glasses are a must if you have been diagnosed with presbyopia. Presbyopia is the condition in which the eye lens loses flexibility, making it hard for you to focus. Presbyopia is age-related, unlike farsightedness which is caused by the shortness of the eyeball.

If you think you need a pair of reading glasses, you can choose to buy them readymade or get an eye test and order a pair for your prescription.

Should you get over-the-counter reading glasses?

Over-the-counter reading glasses are the reading glasses you will find at your local drugstore for a very affordable price! They are a great choice if you have a small prescription for reading glasses and also if the difference between the reading prescription for both your eyes isn’t that great.

You can also buy multiple pairs of over-the-counter reading glasses to suit your looks and to experiment with different styles! But they work well only if you use them temporarily. Having a readymade pair can cause headaches and be detrimental in the long-term. So, if you have to be working or reading for long hours every day, the best choice is to buy a pair of prescription reading glasses that are tailor-made for you!

Or opt for a pair of prescription reading glasses?

Prescription reading glasses are tailored specifically for your vision and are the best choice for long-term use. Being manufactured for your PD (Pupillary Distance) means that ordered prescription reading glasses are easy to adjust to!

You can also choose prescription reading glasses differently for reading and working on a screen. If you are getting them so that you can see your screen better, you should opt for a pair of blue light glasses that also corrects your presbyopic vision and astigmatism.

Bifocals, trifocals and progressives are some other options. But they are only for those who have problems seeing objects far away (near-sightedness).

Buying reading glasses online?
