Reading Glasses

As we grow older, vision grows weaker. Like other body muscles, even eye muscles weaken after a certain age. Focusing on nearby objects become almost impossible. This progressive condition is called "presbyopia".

Single vision lenses used for near viewing may not be helpful for reading. Better, opt for reading glasses to overcome this vision condition. Even the younger generation who find difficulty in reading can go for reading eyeglasses.

Signs that indicate you need reading glasses
  1. Blurry vision while reading
  2. Experience headache while reading
  3. Unable to see small prints clearly
  4. Trouble to perform work that requires focus

Presbyopia Age-related Vision Condition

Once you hit the forties, naturally your power to focus on near objects diminishes. Your eyes become less flexible and muscles weaken. You can view farther objects clearly as before but when it comes to reading, sewing or doing any close work, you may experience blurry vision. However, this vision condition can be corrected with a perfect pair of reading eyeglasses.

Who Need Reading Glasses?

As it is evident now, presbyopia is an aging vision problem. Yet, as per recent research, even youngsters are facing this vision condition. Their eyes turn old due to continuous exposure to harmful rays like ultraviolet emitted from sun and blue-light generated from digital devices. So no matter what is your age, if you are unable to view up close, you can go for reading eyeglasses. Readers help your vision by magnifying and focusing the fine print.

How to choose the strength/power of reading glasses

Reading glasses power is measured in dioptre. The lowest strength is 1.0 dioptre while the highest strength is 4.0 dioptre (it's rare to find high power). The glasses strength increase in factors of .25. So usually the readers measurement is like 1.0, 1.25, 1.50, 2.0..... 4.0.

As you age your glasses strength will increase. It's strongly recommended to get an eye checkup in a year or two and buy readers, accordingly.

Below is the power recommended, based on age:

  • For age between 40 - 44
    Power ranges +0.75 D to +1.00 D
  • For age between 45 - 49
    Power ranges +1.00 D to +1.50 D
  • For age between 50 - 54
    Power ranges +1.50 D to +2.00 D
  • For age between 55 - 59
    Power ranges +2.00 D to +2.25 D
  • For 60 and above age
    Power ranges +2.25 D to +2.50 D

However, getting your eyes checked by your eye doctor is always a good idea.
