Are Reading Glasses For Me?
Not many people want to admit they need reading glasses, but everyone who gets them shares one thing in common: they wish they’d done it sooner!
But how do you know if you need readers? Check out this
simple how-to guide. Then check out your new favorite pair…
1. Test Yourself!
Try out our reading-glasses test. It may be the last thing you have to screw your eyes up to look at.
Sit approximately 14 inches from the chart. Without glasses on, begin reading from the top, and keep reading until the text becomes difficult to read.
Then, refer to the lens strength to the left of that text - that's your power for reading glasses. Ready to check out some frames?
2. Find Something to Read…
It can be anything! Pick up a nearby magazine or book. Use this webpage even. Got something to read? OK - great.
Now ask yourself, how far are you holding it from your face? Is it roughly a foot away - or perhaps more? If it is, then the time is right for getting some reading glasses. And if you chronically lose things, worry not: these guys have your back.)
3. Do an Activity
Like food? Go to a café or restaurant. Is it tough to see the menu? The food? Are you grabbing the candle from the neighboring table? It’s likely not the light that’s off, it could just be your eyes.
Like crafts? Mend those pants you've been meaning to stitch. Can you thread that needle?
If seeing what you're doing is a challenge - and perhaps even a headache - read on. And maybe use these to do so.
4. Try on Some Readers
While it can be tough to acknowledge that you need glasses, getting reading glasses doesn't have to be a sad occasion. Sometimes even when you don't need them, they can up your aesthetic game – and perhaps add the perfect finishing touch to your look.
