Reading glasses for work

Reading Glasses for work

Reading glasses for work need not be boring. No matter what you do for a living if you need reading glasses then they should be functionable, smart, sturdy but they can also be fashionable and colourful. Here at Funkyreaders you can find all kinds of reading glasses for work. So let us take you through what might be appropriate.

Work and reading glasses.

No matter what your job is you will find yourself taking your glasses on and off many times during your working day. Because of this you will need sturdy frames and spring hinges to take the strain. So first of all test the temples and the frame. Look at the screws in the frame and temples are they fully screwed in? The lenses are also very important. You should look for Aspheric lenses if you can find them as they give a flatter reading experience.

Strengths of reading glasses for work.

Your optician will advise you on your reading strength. You may be a person who needs different strengths for different tasks. For reading you might need a different strength than for very close up work such as embroidery. So buy different strengths for different tasks.

Reading glasses for work-what colour?

If you work in an office and attend important meetings where you need to be taken seriously then the classic colours are safest. Choose tortoiseshell, black or blue.

In retail then you can be a little more adventurous in your colours. Customer love their checkout person often chatting with them so your eyewear is important. Go for bright cheerful colours.

Workshops are where people often put their reading glasses down and lose them, so again a bright colour might be appropriate.

We hope we have helped you in your chose of reading glasses for work.

Reading Glasses

Reading glasses are like ageing you cant stop the march of time and a time will come when you will need reading glasses.

This is nothing to worry about. The condition is called presbyopia.

This condition usually starts in your 40`s and is a change in the lens in the eye and makes it more difficult to see close and read smaller print.

As we get older the condition can worsen. If you are at all concerned, you should make an appointment to see your optician.

In most people there is no problem other than long sightedness

This problem can usually be solved by non-prescription reading glasses.

The strength of the magnification will increase with age, but it is likely that you start with a low power in your 40`s and end up with a higher power in your 60`s.

You can buy non-prescription glasses of all strengths on our website.


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 several different strengths depending on what you need them for. For instance, you might normally be a +1.5 but do close 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.

You can buy screen glasses here.

Once you have decided on your strength the next step is to choose a frame.


A person with a smaller face would suit a small frame that was either round or rectangular

If you have an oval shaped face a larger round frame might be right for you.

For larger faces a classic rectangular  or a trapezium shape might suit you.


Some people like a simple but practical ready reader. Something that you can take on and off and are robust. We sell a brand called I Need You from Hamburg that have a style called hangovers. They are unisex glasses. They are called hangovers not because they give you one, but they have longer temples that give a comfortable and secure fit around your face. They also can be hung from your neck when not wearing them to read.

If you like fashion then we would recommend 2 brands Izipizi from France and Doubleice from Italy.


If you want cheap and ordinary ready readers, you can find them at any supermarket. We are not cheap and boring, but we are also not expensive. We sell fashion brands from Europe and the UK. The glasses we sell are good quality and durable. We have a no quibbles returns policy of 28 days. Purchases are despatched the same day by Royal Mail 1st class signed for.
