Reading glasses help users focus on close-up objects, such as text in books or words on labels. There are various factors to consider when buying reader glasses, especially when not with a prescription. Select the right lens that makes your reading easy, depending on the eye defect. Browse through the wide selection of personal care and eyewear at Staples for the right reader glasses.

Finding the right lenses for reading glasses
Lenses have different strengths, and individuals need to choose the correct strength that helps them see correctly. The lenses in over-the-counter reader glasses magnify the letters and words as you read. 

It's important to get advice from an eye specialist before you purchase a set of reading glasses. Some eye defects only affect one eye, while in other cases, the problem can be in both eyes. Ready-made reading glasses correct vision for general eye conditions, while custom-made prescription eyeglasses are for specific eye problems.

In terms of style, the lenses can be thick or slender, and it depends on the user's preference as to which variety is chosen. Some people prefer to have old-school-style lenses that may provide an intellectual look, while others opt for slim frameless models. Reading glasses tend to influence looks a great deal, hence the need to choose the ones that suit the user's face. 

Choosing a frame for your reading glass
You can choose either plastic or metal frames. While the type of lens to buy is purely directed by the eye specialist, the choice of a frame often lies with the wearer. Wide and narrow frames are available, and the personal taste of the wearer dictates which is chosen.

Frames come in a variety of colors to match preference and enhance personal features. The frame size, shape, and color are also guided by an individual's physical appearance. Take the shape of the face, skin tone, and other facial elements like hair color or beard style into account. A metal frame may be preferred because of its long-lasting durability, while a plastic frame can make the readers a fun accessory. Both types are lightweight and comfortable to wear.  

Do you need a prescription to purchase over-the-counter reading glasses?
No. Ready-made reader glasses are available, and you can get them to correct a close-up vision problem. However, getting a proper diagnosis from an optician, optometrist, or ophthalmologist is advisable to ensure any eye defects receive the proper treatment. These medical professionals can detect the extent of a problem and recommend the right lens for your use.

What are other features to look for when choosing reader glasses?
Some features include ultraviolet (UV) ray protection and anti-reflective coatings. UV-ray protection is particularly useful when the wearer is frequently on building sites or reading instructions in outdoor areas, while anti-reflective coatings let others see your eyes more easily, promoting good communication. Scratch-resistant lenses are ideal for young wearers who may be rough on their glasses or for individuals who are continually putting their glasses down on tables and countertops.
