When choosing a pair of reading glasses, it's essential to start by determining your diopter. Diopter is a unit of measurement that indicates the correction required for corrective lenses to remedy blurred vision. Le Petit Cordon UK reading glasses are designed to correct presbyopic vision, so the lens is always positive.

Ophthalmologists recommend the following correction for near vision according to age:

DiopterAge
+1.00
40 years old
+1.50
45 years old
+2.00
50 years
+2.50
55 years old

You can also test your near vision with our presbyopia test.

If you already wear prescription glasses, but your near vision is bothering you, you should consult an ophthalmologist. The ophthalmologist will prescribe a prescription for glasses with progressive lenses, or two pairs of glasses, one for distance vision and one for near vision. In this case, we invite you to go into the store and see the optician.

If you've never needed glasses before, you can buy reading glasses at your local pharmacy, optician or here, at Le Petit Cordon UK !

As a qualified optician, I advise you to wear reading glasses as soon as you notice difficulties in seeing nearby objects clearly, such as books, newspapers, computer screens, cell phones, etc. The signs of these difficulties can include headaches, eye fatigue, blurred vision, pain or tension around the eyes, problems focusing on nearby objects, the feeling that your arms are too long. Signs of these difficulties can include headaches, eyestrain, blurred vision, pain or tension around the eyes, problems focusing on nearby objects, the sensation of having arms too short to read, as well as difficulty reading for long periods.

If you're 40 or over, it's likely that presbyopia, a vision disorder (due to aging of the crystalline lens) that makes it harder to focus on near objects, is beginning to set in. In this age group, reading glasses are frequently required. To determine your specific needs and the appropriate correction, it's essential to consult an optometrist or ophthalmologist. A full eye examination by these professionals will help you assess whether reading glasses are necessary, and which correction would be best for you.
