Selecting Glasses

Tiger Specs stocks a wide range of ready-to-wear reading glasses, sun readers (also known as reading sunglasses) and sunglasses as well as optical accessories.

What strength (power/dioptre) should I choose?

As a good approximate guide, in order to discover what strength reading glasses and sun readers are suitable for you please download and print out our eye chart which is in PDF format. It is exactly A4 in size so must be printed onto A4 paper in it’s actual size with no page scaling, resizing or fitting selected. The eye chart must be printed in order to ensure correct results as on-screen sizes vary between computers.

Using the eye chart will provide you with a good approximate guide to help you in purchasing reading glasses and sun readers of an appropriate strength but it is not intended to replace eye tests by a qualified eye doctor.

For a more precise measurement of your required reading strength and in the interests of eye health we recommend regular eye tests with an optician. You are welcome to return any items within 14 days of dispatch for an exchange or refund should they prove unsuitable - please see the returns section on this page for more information.
