How do I pick the right reading glasses for me?
Before selecting your reading glasses — even the over-the-counter kind — visit with your eye care professional. Experts recommend a yearly eye exam to check for problems like glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, even after you’ve gotten reading glasses.
For computer work, most people can get by with low-power reading glasses (+1.25 to +1.5), Wang says. For reading things that are closer, stronger glasses might be in order (+2.0 to +2.5). As you age, the power you need likely will increase.
Wang notes that some people require one lens power for general up-close reading and another power for extended reading like computer use — meaning that just one pair of reading glasses might not do the trick.
Pierce warns that headaches, eyestrain and even nausea can result from putting on reading glasses that don’t have the proper lens power.
Once you’ve determined the right power, then focus on glasses with high-quality lenses and sturdy frames, Wang recommends.
Depending on the quality, a pair of over-the-counter nonprescription reading glasses can cost anywhere from $1 to $50 or more; a pair of prescription eyeglasses easily can cost $200 and up.
“Lower-quality, less expensive reading glasses may be made with low-quality lens materials, which can cause vision distortion, color distortion or glare. This can contribute to difficulty focusing when reading. It is worth spending a little extra to get better visual quality,” Wang says.
When shopping for over-the-counter reading glasses at a store, Andreoli recommends:
Grabbing a greeting card from the greeting card aisle.
Heading to the rack where reading glasses are sold.
Trying on glasses as you’re holding the greeting card at a comfortable distance.
Selecting the glasses that let you clearly and easily see the greeting card.
Making an appointment with your eyecare professional if you’re unable to decide on a pair of glasses.
