Lenses for presbyopia

Reading glasses are a great solution for people who suffer from presbyopia. These lenses typically feature one or two different optical powers in each lens, to help correct the person’s near-vision blurriness and ensure clear vision when focusing on objects up close. Reading glasses come in many different strengths, based on the individual’s level of presbyopia, and can even be customized with different treatments for additional needs.

The lenses in reading glasses are designed to provide the ideal amount of focusing power that’s needed for near vision tasks. They help alleviate the eye strain associated with presbyopia by allowing a person to comfortably focus on objects at close distances without experiencing blurry vision.

Aspheric Lenses

Aspheric lenses are eyeglass lenses that are thinner at the edges than in the centre. They are designed to correct vision problems caused by astigmatism, which is when the eye does not focus light evenly on the retina. Aspheric lenses can also help to correct other vision problems, such as farsightedness, near sightedness, and presbyopia. These lenses are beneficial for people with presbyopia because they can provide clearer vision than other types of eyeglass lenses.

Aspheric lenses are more lightweight which makes them more comfortable to wear. They provide excellent visual acuity and have less lens distortion than regular lenses. In addition, aspheric lenses can offer greater magnification power than other types of eyeglass lenses.

Overall, aspheric lenses are a great choice for people with presbyopia because they offer improved vision and are lighter and more comfortable to wear. They can provide better visual acuity than regular eyeglass lenses, as well as greater magnification power for reading tasks. Aspheric lenses also reduce distortion and glare, making them an attractive option for those who need help with their eyesight.

The lenses in our reading glasses provide magnification strengths from +1-+3 and in some styles +3.5. They all increase in 0.5 dioptre steps. Montana one of our brands in addition to aspheric lenses also have scratch resistant lenses. So worth having a look at.


This is just a guide please consult your optician for advice.

The powers readily available vary from +1 to +3.5 and will increase in steps of +0.5 dioptres.

You can usually find the strength on the arm of the glasses or on the lens.

+1 is the weakest strength of magnification and +3.5 the highest.

Typically by age 40 to 50 year olds might need strengths +1-+1.5.

Age 51 to 55 +1.5 to +2

Age 56-60 +2

Age 61-65 +2.5 -+3

You should generally try them on before buying to ensure they are not too strong for you. If for instance you thought you needed a +2 and it felt blurry go back to a weaker strength say +1.5. The strengths should be comfortable on your eyes and give clear magnified vision.

You should also consider  buying a number of different strengths depending on what you need them for. For instance you might normally be a +1.5 but do close up needle work and would benefit from a stronger magnification say +3..

If you do a lot of computer work consider buying computer screen reading glasses. They will give you magnification and protection from 40% of the blue light.
