When it comes to finding stylish readers, it’s important to understand what power or magnification is right for you. We make it easy, so you know exactly what to look for when it’s time to buy. Our reading glasses come in a range of strengths, so no matter what magnification you need, we can help improve your vision.
Instead of needing to go to a store to find the right size, you can test the strength of your eyes right in the comfort of your own home. To help you discover the strength you need, we’ve put together an eye chart with a quick reading exercise.
Simply click here to download and print out a copy and you’ll be ready to get started.
Hold your printed eye chart about 14 inches away from your eyes and begin reading at the top line. While doing this, you can wear corrective contact lenses but not glasses, so please remove them for this exercise.
The numbers located on the right (+1.00, +1.50, +2.00, +2.50) are called diopters and represent the optical strength of the lens. So if you are in need of strong vision correction, you may need to purchase glasses with a strength of +2.50 or more. However, always choose the lowest power that allows you to effectively correct your vision. If your glasses are too strong, it may cause headaches or eye strain. If your glasses are too weak, you can always just move up to the next highest diopter.
Once you determine your power, you’ll be all set to shop for the perfect pair of readers.
