Best Reading Glasses Online

Reading glasses allow the wearer to see objects in close range. Examples are small text in newspapers, mobile phones, and computer screens. These glasses solve the problem of being unable to focus on nearby objects. Reading glasses are the solution to presbyopia- an age-related condition where the eye loses its elasticity and becomes stiff over time. As a result of this, the eyes lose their ability to flex and focus on nearby objects and the patient is compelled to hold objects at a distance. The best way to be sure that you need reading glasses is to get an eye test done. Doing this can rule out other problems such as glaucoma, cataract, and macular degeneration.

The best thing to do when you find that your vision feels blurry is to visit your optician and check that both your eyes are having the same degree of blurriness. If you have identical vision issues in both your eyes, you may be the right candidate to get mass-produced reading glasses, as they have the same corrective power in both lenses and often cost cheaper than prescription bifocal reading glasses. However, if on the other hand, you are diagnosed with one eye requiring more correction, you could end up having different prescriptions for both eyes. In this scenario, you would want to buy prescription reading glasses or even consider progressive lenses. At 3cv, regardless of your prescription, you’ll get the gold-standard service of our in-house opticians, who are dedicated to helping you have the best vision of your life. If you ever have any questions on eye health, refer to our hub of optical knowledge- the optical center, or ask our opticians your question!

Reading Glasses FAQs

Who needs reading glasses??

As we approach the age of 40, the lenses in our eyes gradually lose their flexibility and get stiff, meaning vision tends to get unclear, resulting in needing to pull up objects very close or farther away. Some signs that you need reading glasses may be that you feel fatigued or even get headaches from trying to read small text, squinting when looking at something in close range, or having to hold a book at arm’s length to see better.

These are symptoms of presbyopia, typically an age-related condition that occurs and deteriorates over some time. Since this leads to losing the ability to flex and focus at near distance, presbyopic patients hold objects farther away from them, as much as possible. These days people who are younger than 40 also tend to get presbyopic, owing to the modern-day nature of working on near distance objects, especially on digital devices. Hence, investing in a comfortable pair of prescription reading glasses can aid in vision correction as they magnify vision, thereby making smaller print bigger and easier to read. This is the best solution as fighting through the discomfort will not help your eyes.

Some individuals feel that wearing reading glasses worsens their condition because when they take off their glasses, the text appears blurrier and smaller. Did you know that you see with your brain? This means that your brain is used to seeing clear, legibly sized text while you’re wearing your glasses, when they’re taken off, the contrast is evident.

How Do You Know You Need Reading Glasses?

If you notice your vision gets blurry when you focus on near objects and you can’t see the small print clearly without squinting or enlarging the text, you may need reading glasses.

This is very common for those aged 40+, when you may develop a common condition called presbyopia. You can easily improve your vision with a pair of reading glasses that look stylish and allow you to indulge in your favourite activities with clear, comfortable vision.

What Do Reading Glasses Do?

Single vision “reading” glasses are designed not specifically for reading, but more with a specific focal length and working distance in mind.

Most people “read” at anywhere between 45-55 cm from their eyes, whether they’re reading a novel, working on a tablet, or focusing on other on-hand activities. Reading glasses contain a lens power that is optimized for that range. They provide that power across the entire surface of the lens give you the widest field of view.

What strength reading glasses do you need?

Since presbyopia is progressive, we suggest starting with low powered reading glasses for patients in their 40s and high powered lenses for those in their 60s. Glasses with +1.00 power are considered to be of low strength and have relatively lesser magnification, whilst those with +3.50 are considered to be high power lenses.

You can easily determine the strength of reading glasses to order by consulting the chart below. We recommend printing this out rather than reading it from your computer screen. When you print it, the table should be about 13 cm wide. Then, try reading it at a 36 cm distance, without glasses.

Reading glasses are, as the name suggests, eyeglasses that aid the wearer to see or read objects in close range such as small text, mobile phones, computer screens or threading a needle.

There are several types of cheap reading glasses to choose from. They will all address the problem of not being able to focus on objects that are close to you. While it’s easy to get hold of single-vision reading glasses online and over-the-counter, we advise that if you think you need reading glasses, you should get this confirmed first with an eye test. We recommend that you also get checked for problems such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
