Prescription glasses are used to correct vision. Vision is usually affected due to the structure of the eyeball, which affects the light falling on the retina to process the visual to the brain.
In Layman’s, you can call it the missing sharpness in the image- more blurred but visible.
The vision concerns have been classified as short-sightedness, long-sightedness and reading/driving vision concern.
Short sightedness is called myopia as your vision is clear while reading, working on the computer i.e for short distance but poor vision with a long distance or farther objects .This is a result of the elongation of eyeball causing the eye tissue to focus on front of the eye.
Long sightedness is called hypermetropia which occurs due to the flattening of eye leading to light focussing on the back of the retina. It results in clearer vision for far sighted objects but poor vision with nearby objects.
Reading vision concern is called presbyopia which occurs due to the hardening of the eyeball making it difficult to adjust to fine print. Presbyopia is a specific type of vision related concern caused due to age making people difficulty in seeing objects at arm’s length.
Now that you can identify your vision concern and realise your requirement for reading glasses below we have answered some of the common questions you may have while purchasing your new designer eyeglasses online or as they call it readers.
- When do you need Readers?
You find yourself squinting and straining your eyes while you are reading the newspaper, hotel menu or any fine print at arm’s length. You realise that holding it at arms length and craning your neck helps seeing a little better.
- Do Readers have the same power?
Power in readers are determined by their magnifying scope unlike prescription glasses that correct vision. It ranges from +1.0 to +3.50 and depends on the range of magnifying you may require. Visit your optometrist to get a correct power prescription and avoid using an old pair lying your house without checking your requirement.
