What Are Reading Glasses?
Reading glasses are basically what they are meant for – reading! For more context, reading glasses are eyeglasses with non-prescription lenses that magnify text or objects in the lens that make it easier for you to read.
As more people are starting to read through mobile devices or their computer screen, your eyes tend to feel tired after some time. Getting yourself reading glasses that are equipped with the right vision lenses and lens power reduces eye strain and makes it more comfortable for reading too.
However, as we face more screens that emit blue light, more people are facing problems with computer eye strain and double vision. Therefore, there is a growing need for reading glasses with prescriptive lenses, especially for people with astigmatism, myopia, chronic eye disorders or unequal power strength in each eye. Fortunately, with today’s technology, there are many options customers can choose from; you can either get a separate pair of reading glasses or get yourself a pair of eyeglasses equipped with progressive lenses that can be used for reading objects near and far without the need to switch between eyeglasses!
Have no idea which one is the better product for you? Let our optometrists at Your Eye Guardian help you make a better decision by performing an eye check-up to determine the degree of presbyopia before recommending reading glasses that suit your eye condition.
Why Do People Wear Reading Glasses?
Have you realised that as we get older, our vision becomes more blurry which makes it harder for us to see objects that are near to us? This is usually linked to a condition called presbyopia that comes with age, usually affecting people who are 40 years old and above. There is no known cure for presbyopia, but it can be managed with the right prescription of eyeglasses that are well-suited for reading.
Other than having difficulty seeing what you’re reading or writing, you may need reading glasses if you frequently experience headaches while trying to focus to read. When your eyes feel fatigued after reading, it is also another indicator that you need to get yourself a pair of reading glasses.
Having to experience headaches and eye strain on a regular level is no fun for anyone, therefore it’s highly recommended to get our eyes checked on a regular basis by an optician or optometrist as soon as possible! Not to worry though – our friendly team at Your Eye Guardian has your eye health as our top priority and can recommend you pairs of reading glasses that are affordable and great in quality.
