What are Reading glasses?

Reading glasses are required for clear vision and to prevent eye strain when it becomes difficult to read prints or see objects up close. These glasses are a solution to correct vision without any medical procedures when objects appear blurred or double to eyes at a closer look. After attaining a certain age, say around 40, the natural lens in the eyes becomes less flexible and is unable to focus on objects. Thus, reading glasses also known as power readers or sometimes power readers﴿ come in handy to correct vision and for better clarity while viewing objects nearby.

When Reading glasses are required?

These glasses are necessary if the vision is affected by Presbyopia i.e. the inability of the eyes to focus on closer objects; whereas the eyes can focus on distant objects easily. Presbyopia or long-sightedness is a very common condition of eyes which occurs when the eyes lose elasticity of their natural lens in old age and it persists life‐ long. Glasses for reading are required if any one or more of the following symptoms are noticed:‐

  • Persistent eye strain, headache, painful or watery eyes.
  • Attaining old age, especially after entering the 40s.
  • Inability to read at less than arm’s length or in dim light.
  • Squinting eyes to read.
  • Halo appears around light or bulbs.
  • Viewing laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. from closer appearance to blur.
  • After surgery certain surgeries like cataracts, if recommended by a medical practitioner.

Prescription Reading Glasses

Non-Prescription and Prescription Power Readers

prescription non prescription glasses

Prescription glasses have lenses that correct defective vision caused due to nearsightedness, farsightedness or both. The prescription glasses with a defined power lens can correct vision if it is difficult to view objects at distance, close up or both. When eyes are examined by a medical practitioner or expert optometrist, the documented opinion consisting of prescription is followed to craft the glasses in conformity to the same. Apart from nearsightedness and farsightedness, prescription glasses are able to correct vision defects caused due to Diplopia (with a prism in the lens), nystagmus (with a magnifying lens), astigmatism (with a concave lens having cylindrical number and relevant axis) etc. Non-prescription glasses are not meant to correct any vision defects. They do not possess correcting lenses in them and anyone can wear them even if eyesight is perfect. These glasses are trending due to their fashion quotient, to appear stylish or used as protecting glasses having tinted lenses, anti-glare, anti-UV and anti-X Blue light coating. Reading glasses for men and women can be prescription glasses or over the counter glasses with similar power strength in both lenses.

Reader Glasses

Are Reader glasses different from Sunglasses, Computer glasses and Distant glasses?

Reader Glasses carry vision-correcting properties for farsightedness. On the other hand, sunglasses are useful against protecting eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun; while computer glasses perform glare resistance and digital X‐blue light-blocking functions. Apparently, distance glasses are required to correct nearsightedness with the lens power range of ‐0.50 to ‐10.

While there are few tools to measure your PD online, it is much more accurate to do it at home yourself. And it is super easy as well! Here are the steps to measure your PD online:

  • Stand 12 inches or 30 cm away from a mirror
  • Look straight into the mirror and hold a millimetre ruler/scale flat against your eyebrows. You can also use an app on the phone if you don’t have a ruler.
  • Close your right eye and alight the 0 mm mark to the centre of your left pupil
  • Now close your left eye while keeping the right one open without moving the ruler
  • Find the mark corresponding to the centre of your left pupil. The measurement you get is your PD
  • Repeat the process a few times to make sure the number you get is consistent

If you can’t figure out how to measure your PD online, you can just take a close snap of your eyes with a millimetre ruler placed horizontally over them and send the picture to us. We will give you an exact measurement or you can visit our store to get it done physically.
You can use your 8.5 x 5.4 cm bank card to measure your PD without a ruler. Remove your glasses and sit in bright natural light. Hold the card against your forehead using two fingers. Look straight directly into the camera and take a snap. Send the picture to us and we’ll give you your PD or add it automatically to your order if you’re buying prescription glasses from us.
If your PD isn’t correct, it might affect your vision and give you eye strains. This is why you must make sure your PD is correct before you place an order for eyeglasses.
You can measure pupillary distance using your glasses. For this, you’ll need to keep your glasses on. Close your right eye and put a mark on the left lens of your glasses falling in front of your left pupil. Now do the same with your right eye while keeping the left eye closed. Take off your specs and measure the distance between the two marks and you’ll get your PD.
PD should be as accurate and exact as possible. If the lenses are not centred properly, it can cause visual discomfort. However, it doesn’t have to be 100% precise as a small margin for error. But, to get the best vision, it should be as close to the accurate number as possible.
If you can’t measure your PD by yourself, you can visit your nearest optical store and ask the optician to do it for you. They might charge you a fee for it. You can also ask your optometrist to put down your PD on the prescription copy after you get an eye test.

Monocular vs. binocular PD measurements

There are two types of PD measurements:

Monocular PD measurement: This refers to the distance from the centre of your pupil to the centre of the nose bridge. It is a two-number measurement required for the fitting of progressive lenses.
Binocular PD measurement: This refers to a single number denoting the distance between your pupils and equals the sum of your two monocular PDs.
