How do you read? The way you sit at a computer, the way you hold a book is an indicator of the condition of your eyes. If you need to get very close to the screen or hold the book at arms- length, then you need to make sure you book an appointment with an optician and get your eyes tested.
If you start to have headaches regularly then this may also be a sign that you may need to wear glasses. These issues may start at an early age, so you need to look out for them in children. For most people they begin as we get older and are a gradual process.
For many people glasses are a necessity for everyday life and need to be worn at all times. Many people who cannot be glasses – free opt for wearing contact lenses during the day, or switching between wearing contact lenses and glasses. However, a large proportion of people who wear glasses only have a minor eyesight condition. As a result of this, all that they may need to buy are a pair of reading glasses which
are then used for the specific task such as typing or reading.
When needing reading glasses it is quite easy to buy cheap glasses online. Many companies specialise in reading glasses and this means that you can buy them quite cheaply. The cheaper reading glasses are one size fits all. The prescription in each lens is the same and the location of the optical centre of the lens
is not customised for the wearer. However, for many people this is not a problem and the benefits of having a great range of styles colours and choices outweigh these issues.
There are two types of reading glasses for women and men. These are called full reading glasses and half eye reading glasses. As their name suggests, the former are suitable if you have to spend a lot of time doing the activity you require lenses for. However, half eye reading glasses enable you to more easily switch between a variety of tasks.
