Do I need to wear Reading Glasses?

Do I need to wear reading glasses. The answer to that iif you find that you are struggling to read the small print of a newspaper or household label then you may be suffering from Presbyopia and need reading glasses The first stop is your optician for an eye test. Presbyopia is nothing to worry about.

Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eyes' ability to focus on nearby objects. It's a natural, often annoying part of aging. Presbyopia usually becomes noticeable in your early to mid-40s and continues to worsen until around age 65.

Your optician will be able to prescribe a prescription after your eye test where he will also have checked the health of your eyes.You may not be able to have straight forward non prescription reading glasses if your prescription is complicated but your optician will advise you.

If you are just suffering from long-sightedness then the optician can tell you what strength you need. For instance you may be told that you need the weakest strength a +1 to help magnify your vision for reading..

Strengths that we sell at Funkyreaders are from +1-+3.5 in half dioptre steps so there are a number of options available for you.

Reading glasses how can they can help me ?

The first question to ask your self is what do I need them for? Reading is one answer, but you may do very close work such as embroidery and only need them for that task. Generally you will need them for reading. Just think of the many places where they can help. Reading a menu in a restaurant, work on your computer, or just reading a book in the garden. Many of Funkyreaders customers and friends complain that they put their glasses down and cannot find them. The answer found to that dilemma was to have a pair in every room.

We have customers who work in the equestrian and agricultural sectors who use reading glasses but take them off and on repeatedly and would put them down and lose them. Our Hangover reading glasses have become a firm favourite. They are practical with longer temples that fit firmly on your head so that when you lean over they do not fall off. The extra long temples also allow you to hang them from your neck so you always know where they are.

What size of Reading Glasses do I need?

 There are a number of factors to take into consideration. The size of your head is one factor. You will need to look at the frame to start off with. The frame sits on your face so you need to have a frame size that fits from one side of your head at the temples to the other. The nose width is also important as people have different sizes of noses. The temples or arms need to be long enough to fit behind your ears. You can usually find a specification of the sizes when purchasing your reading glasses. We have a brand called izipizi and we are able to show by way of a diagram the reading glasses specifications. An example is below.


reading glasses sizes

Here you will see that the temple or arm is 139mm long. Is that long enough for you? The frame is 137mm, will this fit your face temple to temple? The lens depth is 40mm. Is it deep enough for you?
