What to know about readers?

Thanks for clicking :) If small text or images that were once clear are now blurry, you are in the right place. Whether you are new to readers or have used them for years, there are definitely a few things you should know. 

What do readers do?

Reading glasses use a magnifying lens to help you see small text or images clearly within a range of approximately 14-18 inches away from your face.

What does diopter mean?

The “diopter”, also known as the strength or power, tells you how strong the readers are. Our reader diopters range from 1.25 – 3.00.

How can I figure out what diopter I need?

The best way is always to go to your optometrist, they can advise exactly what strength you need. Otherwise take our vision test and that will give you a good idea of what power you need. 

Should I just go for the strongest power?

No, no and no! When wearing reading glasses, you want the lowest possible power that you need to see clearly.
