Purchasing new glasses isn't always an easy task. When buying reading glasses, you’ll want to be mindful of four influential factors: comfort, vision strength/Rx, appearance, and safety. You may also need to seek assistance from an optometrist for choosing eyeglasses for your specific visual needs.
Thanks to technological advancements over the years, reading glasses are now available for all kinds of different tasks, activities, vision needs, and environments. This blog will introduce you to five popular lens types that our EFE is currently selling to provide you with the best visual experience.
Fully magnified lenses have the magnification of your choice throughout the entire lens. These lenses are the cheapest and most common type of reading glasses. They have the largest field of vision because they only correct vision at one specific distance. So, if you prefer to wear your readers only when reading something, that's totally your choice.
Bifocal lenses contain two different prescriptions within a single lens. They help with aiding both farsightedness and nearsightedness. The top of the lens is designed for long-distance viewings, such as watching TV, when walking, and the bottom is convenient for you to wear when you need to read or play on phones.
Bifocal reading sunglasses are a variation that’s popular in the summertime, it combines the benefits of bifocal reading glasses and sunglasses, so you can wear them whether you're walking, talking with others, reading under the sun or seeing off into the distance with UV protection.
Blue light reading glasses are glasses that contain lenses specifically designed to reduce the amount of blue light that reaches the eye. These lenses filter blue light rays to help prevent them from entering your eye and causing potential damage. Usually, blue light lenses have a slight yellow tint to counterbalance the blue light. So, if you need to watch your computer, TV, phone or other electronic products for a long time, this type of reading glasses is completely your choice.
Multifocal glasses are essentially a pair of glasses with multiple prescriptions for nearsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. The top of the lens corrects distance vision, it’s used when walking, driving, or looking straight ahead at people you are conversing with. The bottom of the lens corrects your up-close vision, it’s used for reading materials like books and magazines. The middle of the lens corrects your intermediate distances, it’s used for computer purposes like your laptop, tablet, or another digital device. Therefore, multifocal reading glasses are the best choice for people with multiple vision problems.
