When do you need Reading Glasses?

Age has an effect on your eyes. When you reach your 40s, the natural internal lenses in your eyes become less flexible. They can't focus as easily from near to far vision like they could when you were younger.

As your eyes get less flexible, your close vision gets worse. It's a condition called presbyopia, and it may make you wonder if you need reading glasses.

Here are a few signs of presbyopia:

  • When you hold books and other reading materials close to you, they look blurry. You have to hold them farther away to read them.
  • You have trouble seeing smaller font/print in low light.
  • Your eyes hurt when you try to read, sew, or do other close work.
  • You get a headache or sore eyes when you try to read.
  • You squint when trying to read a magazine or book or the words on the television.
  • You find yourself having to (or wanting to) push your computer monitor back in order to see it better.
  • Have you reached your fortieth birthday?

If you can answer YES to more than one or two of the following questions, you may want to consider Reading Glasses.

In Short, when you reach the point of not being able to read up close without stretching your arms to the limit where you might be able to read, you may need to consider Reading glasses.

Why do you need Reading Glasses?

They are specially designed to significantly improve a person's quality of life, allowing them to see the world more clearly and avoid potential eye strain.

Reading glasses provide extra assistance to focus on small objects at close distance, like words on a page or needlework. (Reading glasses are not to be confused for regular eyeglasses that are needed in order to drive, watch television, and perform other everyday tasks.)

Struggling to read without reading glasses can cause the eyes to become strained and vision to deteriorate. Wearing reading glasses can minimize potential issues.

While working, especially if you need to work with lots of files or files, reading glasses can prevent your eyes from straining when you read.

 i.e., Reading Glasses help reduce the amount of effort required to focus on objects.


Make an Appointment with your Doctor

If you think that you may be in need of reading glasses, make an appointment with an optometrist or ophthalmologist. He can recommend a reading glass strength or write a prescription based on your exam. And it's always a good idea to get checked for other eye issues.

When do You Need Reading Glasses? What to Know Before Buying it

If the doctor determines that none of these conditions exist other than presbyopia, it is time to get yourselves a pair of reading glasses. Ready-made reading glasses are available in lots of fun styles and colors, so you can also experiment with fashion!

See your eye doctor right away if:

  • You have any sudden or drastic changes in your vision.
  • Everything looks blurry.
  • You have pain in your eyes.
  • You see flashes of light or halos around lights.
  • You have double vision.

We recommend that you get your basic eye exam by the age 40. This is when many vision problems, including presbyopia, may start.

After that, you should get exams:

  • Every 1 to 3 years between ages 55 and 64
  • Every 1 to 2 years starting at age 65


The truth about reading glasses is that most people end up needing them eventually. See an eye doctor and invest in a good pair of reading glasses if necessary. You can be able to enjoy reading and writing again.
