Have you noticed your arms getting longer when reading your phone? And are you struggling to read in lower lighting conditions?
Mmmmm. It might be time for reading glasses!
Everyone’s eyesight changes at different rates and ages but most people develop presbyopia in their 40’s. Presbyopia is when you can’t focus on nearby objects and develops as you get older.
If you are experiencing problems with close up work and your eyesight you can visit a qualified optician/optometrist/ophthalmologist for a full eye test, and they can provide you with an individual prescription if needed and monitor your eye health. In addition to that, if you need reading glasses you can invest in a pair of London Mole reading glasses right now, and the great news is they are only £15 a pair.
Our reading glasses come in the following lens ‘strengths’ or ‘powers’; 1.0 1.5 2.0 2.5 3.0.
1.0 is the weakest lens, perhaps the most likely power if you have just noticed your reading becoming slightly blurred, and 3.0 is our strongest lens for those of us that need that extra help to bring our text into focus.
You can’t compare the advantages of a professional eye test, but we do have a very simple test to give you an idea of what strength lens would best suit you. Click here for the London Mole Simple eye test.
Until now, reading glasses have tended to be primarily ‘visual aids’. The good news is London Mole make reading glasses that are a delight to wear. Needing reading glasses shouldn’t involve wearing fuddy duddy glasses! It should be a pleasure, and now it is, with so many styles, colours and finishes to choose from, you can go for an understated cool look, or be a bit more adventurous and wear something more fun. Either way don’t succumb to old fashioned reading glasses, be bold, enjoy wearing glasses and go for it!
Our reading glasses are for near vision and reading use only. Not for driving or vehicle operation. Not for use as eye protection against chemical or mechanical hazards. Remember only regular professional eye-care examinations can determine your visual needs and eye health.
