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.
We want nothing to stand between you and the perfect reading experience. Our individualised reading lenses, which we optimally adapt to suit your needs, give you the perfect view in the close-up range (30 to 50 cm).
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.
What strength of reading glasses do you need? We at VIU can answer that question for you. Simply visit us in a VIU store and let our staff determine your current vision values during a free eye test. This way you can find out if you need reading glasses and, if so, what strength they should be.
