Glasses, spectacles and reading.

Glasses, spectacles and reading glasses are optical devices that help people who have difficulty seeing normally due to refractive errors in the eye. These problems can range from mild near-sightedness or farsightedness to more serious issues such as astigmatism. Reading glasses are specifically designed for close-up tasks like reading a book or newspaper, but prescription glasses and spectacles can be used for general vision correction. These devices are made of lightweight plastic or metal frames with lenses that contain special coatings to reduce glare and improve comfort. There are a variety of styles available depending on the type of vision correction needed, as well as frames in different shapes and sizes to fit each person’s face. Properly fitted glasses, spectacles and reading glasses can provide clear vision and improved comfort for many people.


With the right prescription lenses and frames, glasses, spectacles and reading glasses can help improve the quality of life for those who need vision correction. They may be able to enjoy activities such as driving or watching television that they would otherwise find difficult or impossible. Furthermore, these devices protect the eyes from dust and other debris while providing visual acuity. Ultimately, glasses, spectacles and reading glasses can help people enjoy life to its fullest potential.

What style will suit my face shape?

When it comes to finding the right glasses for your face shape, there are a few things to consider. Broadly speaking, glasses come in three basic shapes: round, square, and oval.

Round frames

These work best on those with an angular face shape - think sharp jawlines and prominent cheekbones.

Square frames

Square frames are best suited to those with softer features and a rounder face shape.

Oval frames

Oval frames work well with all face shapes, as they draw attention to the eyes and away from any sharp angles.

Reading glasses

When it comes to reading glasses, there are a few additional factors to consider. Reading glasses come in both full-frame and half-frame styles, which should be chosen depending on your lifestyle and how often you will wear them. Full frame reading glasses provide maximum coverage and protection from light, while half-frame styles are lighter and more discreet. Additionally, lens coatings can be added for further protection from glare or UV rays, as well as Blue light-blocking lenses to reduce digital eye strain.
