Styles to smile about:
Every bookworm needs a great pair of reading glasses. This type of eyewear corrects your vision while dealing with things up close, like a restaurant menu or your favorite novel.
Check out our curated selection of frames for reading glasses right here, or click the “reading” box at checkout on any of our eyeglass frames.
Reading eyeglasses are designed for people who need closeup vision correction. Many people have trouble focusing on nearby objects as they get older, making it difficult to focus on very small text. Glasses with reading lenses stylishly solve this issue.
If your vision prescription has a + symbol before the numbers, you need farsighted vision correction instead of reading glasses. Intermediate lenses are known as computer glasses in some circles, but this doesn’t mean that they protect you from digital screen light. They simply correct vision at the range your computer monitor usually sits.
Bifocal lenses are great for reading eyeglasses. These lenses feature long-range vision correction at the top and close range at the bottom, making them perfect if you need both kinds of correction.

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.
