But how do you find the right prescription for reading glasses?

In this article, we're going to give you some tips on how to find the right prescription for your reading glasses.

  1. Visit an optometrist: The best way to find the right prescription reading glasses is to visit an optician. An optometrist can perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine your vision and recommend the correct prescription for reading glasses. 

  2. Go to the ophthalmologist:  The optometrist can perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine your current vision and identify any vision problems. The ophthalmologist can also determine whether vision disorders are present. 

  3. Note age-related farsightedness: Age-related farsightedness, also known as presbyopia, is a vision disorder that occurs around the age of 40 and affects the ability to see nearby objects clearly. If you already have age-related farsightedness, you may need prescription reading glasses. 

  4. Use a sample reading chart: You can use our reading sample to determine the correct reading glasses strength. This sample board contains different text sizes and fonts that allow you to test your reading ability and choose the right strength. You can use this sample chart to try different reading glasses powers and choose the one that best allows you to read text clearly and comfortably. You can easily download the sample reading chart from our shop and print it out at home.

  5. Consider the usage environment: The environment in which you will primarily be using your reading glasses can also play a role in determining the correct reading glasses power. For example, if you will be using your glasses primarily at work, you should consider the distance between your eyes and the screen. However, if you use your glasses more for reading books or magazines, you will need to choose a different reading power - this will be stronger than for the computer.
