Reading glasses come in two styles: half-eye and full frames. Full reading glasses give you a near correction. They are useful for reading. In contrast, “half-eye” reading glasses allow you to look down and through the lenses for near work, and up and over them to see in the distance.
Generally, people will start out with a pair of reading glasses. Progressive lenses (bifocals) are usually a better choice if you have a need for distance as well as near correction.
A popular type of bifocals is the sunglass bifocal, with a non-prescription upper half for looking far away and a reading prescription in the lower half for close up.
In the UK reading glasses can be custom-made, or they can be purchased at a store or via online suppliers of reading glasses. Wholesale online reading glasses are available in lots of styles and colours, so you can experiment with fashion, purchasing different pairs without risking a lot of money.
There is also a difference between reading glasses and computer glasses. If your reading glasses are the type that force you to lean your head back in order to view your monitor, you’re placing unnecessary strain on your neck muscles. Also, if you’re using reading glasses to try to view your computer screen, you really should invest in prescription computer glasses that protect you from high-energy blue light.
