Reading Glasses

A cosy spot, a cup of tea or coffee, and a good book: that’s all you really need for perfect reading pleasure – unless you have to stretch your arms further and further into the distance so the jumble of letters forms meaningful words. If this situation sounds familiar, then it’s high time for you to get a pair of reading glasses, i.e. eyeglasses for viewing objects at close range.

When do I need reading glasses?

The question of when or at what age you first need eyeglasses for reading cannot be answered in general, but as a rule, glasses with lenses for the close-up range become necessary starting around age 40. This is because the eyes become less efficient with increasing age, so letters in particular become difficult to recognise. Presbyopia is another reason why reading without glasses becomes increasingly difficult.
