Over-the-counter reading glasses are marked with a prescription strength, but when you order reading glasses at EyeBuyDirect, you can enter the exact prescription you need to see clearly, and you don’t need to worry about lower quality lenses.
The best way to find out your prescription for reading glasses is to speak to your eye care professional. Using a prescription based on the results of a recent eye exam is the only way to ensure that the lenses you choose will correct your vision accurately.
Wearing reading glasses all the time won’t damage your eyes, but it’s unnecessary. Reading glasses are designed to help you see better up close for activities like sewing and, of course, reading. Bifocal or progressive lenses are a good choice if you don’t like changing your glasses for distance and up-close vision correction.
You can read a reading glasses prescription in the same way that you read a distance-vision prescription. The number under the sphere section of your prescription indicates the vision-correction strength you need. Your prescription may have a cylinder and axis number on it as well, these numbers are also important.
The highest-power reading glasses prescription available at EyeBuyDirect is +12.00. Please note that some frames may not be available with higher-power prescriptions.
If you need different prescription strengths for each eye for your reading glasses from EyeBuyDirect, you can simply enter the required numbers in the OD (right eye) and OS (left eye) rows of the your prescription section at checkout.
