Reading Glasses at Walgreens

Many people in the United States require some type of vision correction to help them see their best. As you age, your ability to focus on objects may decrease, which can make it difficult to read and see objects up close. Reading glasses are eyeglasses made especially for helping you to see small print in order to read and to complete other tasks that require near vision. Walgreens has many reading glasses with something for nearly every need.

Choosing the Right Reading Glasses

In order for you to get the full benefits of reading glasses, you need to choose a pair with the ideal level of correction for your needs. Eyeglasses that correct vision too much will make it difficult for you to see clearly, and reading glasses that are not powerful enough will not make small print distinct enough for easy reading. Before choosing reading glasses, it's a good idea to visit an eye doctor for an examination. A medical professional can tell you what level of correction is right for your needs and can also run tests to ensure that the problems that you are experiencing with your vision are not related to an underlying medical condition.

The power of eyeglasses is measured with a number that begins with a plus sign, such as +1.50 or +2.0. The higher the number, the more correction the lenses provide. The readers that you'll find at Walgreens have the same level of vision correction in both lenses. If there is a great deal of difference between your two eyes, you may require prescription reading glasses.

Many people are concerned about how reading glasses will affect their appearance, but by taking your face shape into consideration, you can select the perfect pair of reading glasses to complement your features. Your goal should be to balance the shape of your face with your eyewear. If your face is rounder, frames that have a more squared-off shape will help to balance your features, while square and oblong faces are softened by rounder lenses. You'll also want to take the size of your face into consideration. Designer and fashion frames are available in various materials including metal and clear plastic.

Once you have purchased the perfect pair of reading glasses for your needs, you'll want to keep them in the best condition, so that you can continue to use them for years to come. Many eyeglass cleaners and accessories are available to help you store and care for your readers. Keep your eyeglasses in a protective case when they're not on your face, and never place your glasses with their lenses down on any type of surface. Use both hands to put your eyeglasses on and take them off to avoid bending or damaging the frames. To keep your vision clear, you'll need to clean the lenses on a regular basis to remove smudges and fingerprints. The simplest way to clean reading glasses is with pre-moistened wipes made specifically for glasses. Never clean your glasses with a paper towel or tissue, as this could scratch the lenses. Lens cleaning cloths should be used if you prefer a reusable option to disposable wipes.
