Reading Glasses

Wondering if you need to buy reading glasses the online USA? Welcome to EyeglassesClub, the home of buying cheap reading glasses online. There is something for absolutely everyone under the sun. But first things first, do you need reading glasses?

“Do I Need Reading Glasses?”

Well, have you ever struggled to read a menu in a restaurant because the print was too small? Or started holding books further away from you to make the text clearer? Sometimes people find their arms simply aren't long enough! These experiences are normal and nothing to worry about. All it means is that you need reading glasses!

Why Reading Glasses

To make sure prescription reading glasses are the best option for you, you must visit an optician. This will allow you to get a full eye examination and check exactly what corrective power you need in a pair of lenses. It is important to get this right, as there are a plethora of vision impairments, many of which can affect your ability to read. For example, those with astigmatism will find their vision blurry, no matter the distance they are looking at, and therefore reading glasses would not be right. However, an issue called presbyopia is becoming increasingly common in those aged forty and above, but below that age too, thanks to our exposure to digital devices. Presbyopia is a scary word, but it simply refers to the fact that, over time, the muscles in your eyes become weaker and less flexible, meaning you can no longer adjust your vision to read text up close. Fortunately, this can be easily fixed with a pair of reading glasses USA. 

However, a key thing to check while at the optician is that both your eyes are behaving the same way. If you have the same vision problems in both eyes, and to the same extent, you can buy ready-to-go readers that are mass-produced. They have the same corrective power in both lenses, and will often be available at cheaper prices. You can shop for such cheap reading glasses here. 

On the other hand, you may discover that one of your eyes needs more correction than the other, and so you could end up with a different prescription for each eye. This means that you want to go for prescription reading glasses, and you can choose from a whole host of options.

Prescription Reading Glasses

Let's dive a little deeper into how reading glasses actually work. They are used primarily to improve vision at shorter distances, which tends to entail reading smaller text sizes, from maps to menus to magazines. The typical prescriptive powers for reading glasses include +1.00, +1.50, +2.00, +2.50, +3.00, to +3.50, and all are available to buy online from EyeglassesClub. We have in-house opticians who expertly fit the correct lenses into whichever frames you choose. It is worth noting that the lower the number, the weaker the strength of the prescription, whereas a power of +3.50 is considered a high-power prescription. If your prescription is the same in both eyes, you can opt for EyeglassesClub Readers frames, which tend to be more affordable. As a result, you can buy multiple pairs and keep one wherever you may need it, such as in coat pockets and handbags, office desks and briefcases, or even in the car. This means you are fully prepared with a clear vision, whenever reading might occur!

Which Reading Glasses to get?

The lowest strength of reading glasses is usually 1.0 dioptre, and at the other end of the scale, you have lenses of 4.0 dioptre. The strength increases by 0.25 each time. The exact power for you will be determined during your visit to the optician. Just make sure you walk away with a copy of your prescription so that you can hop online to EyeglassesClub and shop thousands of frames for much cheaper prices. Once you have selected a frame, you simply have to upload your prescription online or email it to us when you get a spare moment. 

Blue Light Reading Glasses

If the time you need reading glasses most is when looking at a digital screen, blue light reading glasses, or computer glasses, are a must! They work exactly the same as a normal pair of reading glasses, but they have an additional protective coating layered over the lenses. This coating shields your eyes from the harmful blue light wavelengths emitted by digital devices such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets, and televisions. Wearing such reading glasses will help avert symptoms of digital eye strain, including headaches, trouble sleeping, and dry or tired eyes. Blue light reading glasses are therefore the most comfortable and healthy option! What's more, you can choose any pair of frames on our website, and add a blue light coating at the checkout. This comes in the form of our innovative zFORT® shield, which can be added to any lens or frame. 

Reading Glasses

Have you ever found that your arms aren't long enough to let you hold a phone or book far enough away for you to read it? This is perfectly normal, especially for those past the age of 40. It simply means that you would benefit from wearing reading glasses. The problem that occurs is called presbyopia, which essentially means that over time, the elasticity in your eyes has weakened, making your eye muscle less flexible. This means that you can still see clearly at a distance, but struggle to read text up close. A pair of single vision lenses will fix this very easily. Think about the times when reading is necessary: reading in bed, reading a menu in a restaurant, reading for work, and choosing a frame to match the occasion. Perhaps some neutral coloured transparent frames for that warm and cosy look. Maybe a fashionable pair of oversized retro frames. Or even a pair of reading glasses with a bold cat eye shape from your favourite designer label.

Intermediate or Computer Glasses

This is the up-and-coming most popular kind of single vision glasses. The intermediate label is appropriate because the prescription corrects vision for middle distances. So not far away, but not too close up. It is typically the distance between you and your computer - hence, computer glasses. The single vision lens clarifies your sight at this specific distance, and so because we are all spending so much more time on computers these days, they are increasing in popularity. An added benefit of the intermediate single vision lens is that you can add a blue light filter to protect your eyes from digital strain. This occurs when you look at a digital screen for extended periods and can lead to trouble sleeping and headaches. Whichever frames you choose, simply add your single vision prescription, and then add the zFORT™ blue light block coating.  

Single Vision for Distance

It is equally common to have single vision lenses to help you see objects that are further than an arm's length away. This can therefore be useful for activities like driving, watching TV, or going to the cinema. The difficulty is frequently spotted at a young age, usually around five or six. This is because it is the age most children go to school and realize that they cannot read the board at the front of the classroom. The single vision lens for long-distance can help correct two visual difficulties: myopia and hyperopia. 

Single Vision for Astigmatism

For someone with astigmatism, essentially, everything is blurry. The problem is fixed with a prescription that has two numbers for a single vision lens. Do not let this confuse you. Although you cannot get single vision glasses from any old shop because they will not be accurate enough, you can easily purchase a single vision lens with your prescription. This is easy to do online at EyeglassesClub, just add your details at the checkout. 

Single Vision vs Progressive and Single Vision vs Bifocal

Another excellent question is how single vision lenses compare with bifocals and progressives. A single vision lens has just one prescription across the lens, whereas a bifocal will have two, and a progressive will have three. The advantage of bifocals and progressives is that you can see clearly at different distances with just one pair of glasses. However, they are more expensive. A fun alternative is to have two or three pairs of single vision glasses. This means that you can have a pair of frames for every occasion. For example, you can have a sleek and stylish square pair for driving, a vintage round design for reading, and a simple yet elegant browline frame for work.
