The Importance of Finding the Right Lens Strength Reading Glasses
The search for the right reading glasses to address your visual needs can be grueling. Drugstore reading glasses are convenient & inexpensive, but they're also brittle & bulky, making it difficult to have your reading glasses always with you when you need them. Besides, they're usually broken or lost, am I right?
Conversely, scheduling an appointment with an eye doctor is a great way to find what strength reading glasses you need. A thorough eye exam and visual acuity test (which includes the oft-searched-for reading glasses strength chart) are the most accurate tests to determine what lens strength your new reading glasses need to be. But it can be difficult to find time in your schedule to make all that happen. Such a bespoke experience can also be cost prohibitive, again making it difficult to get reading glasses with the right lens strength for your eyes.
Downloadable and printable reading glasses tests (like ours!) are another popular way to get a general determination of the range of diopter strength that your reading glass lenses will likely need, but there truly is no substitute for being able to actually try on several pairs of reading glasses.
After all, you can’t buy the right reading glasses without asking yourself “What lens strength do I need?”
Common Problems in Finding What Strength Reading Glasses You Need
The two most common problems people have when trying to find reading glasses are:
1. Determining the right lens strength for their eyes, and
2. Locating a pair of reading glasses to fit their personal style
This pretty much covers most of the process of getting yourself some new reading glasses; right? Form & function.
In addition to vastly improving your quality of life by removing the strain associated with blurry vision, reading glasses can also protect your eyesight. In fact, research has found that people who wear their reading glasses more often have fewer eye-related disorders such as age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. Furthermore, regular eye exams are also an important part of detecting eye diseases early and preserving your vision.
Keeping these two facts in mind, it is evident how important finding the right lens strength is!
