What Strength Reading Glasses Do I Need?
How to Buy Reading Glasses Online
You can get reading glasses for women and men pretty much anywhere these days. Depending on where you find them, remember that just because they’re cheap doesn’t mean they’re worth your money -- even if a pair only costs the amount of change you can grab from your pockets.
First of all, if it’s that cheap, you likely need to upgrade sooner rather than later. Secondly, there is a little more science that goes into choosing the best pair of reading glasses for your needs. Consider the following next time you’re ready to shop for quality reading glasses.
If you have no idea where to begin, start with a reading glasses test. Luckily, you do not need to visit the optometrist to find your appropriate reading glasses strength. Instead, you can take what’s known as a Diopter Test. This exam is an easy, fast, on-paper test available at most reading glasses suppliers or drug stores.
However, you can also see our Reading Eye Chart that you can print out at home to determine the strength of reading glasses you should order. You can find the chart and instructions here: Reading Eye Chart Printout.
Trying on glasses at the optometrist's office or pharmacy before shopping online is a great way to see which strength is best for you. You may even find our reading glasses at your local eye doctor's office, gift shop or drugstore! (Which is a great way to try on our frames before buying.) Since all of our readers have the measurements listed on the product page, it's helpful to know which size(s) fit best, and look great on you. If you can get these measurements from your eye doctor, you can shop online with confidence that they'll fit well!
