How To Choose Your Kid’s Reading Glasses

What Are Reading Glasses?

 

Reading glasses are non-prescription glasses suited for close-up sight, such as reading or writing. There are several types of cheap kids’ reading glasses to choose from, all with the aim of addressing the problem of not being able to focus on nearby objects. While it’s easy to get hold of single-vision reading glasses online and over-the-counter, we advise that if you think you need reading glasses, you should get this confirmed first with an eye test.

 

Why Do Some Kids Need Reading Glasses?

 

Some children will have mild levels of various eye conditions, including astigmatism, strabismus and myopia. At low levels, these children might not require prescription glasses. Kids’ reading glasses solve this problem, as they have lenses which improve the eye’s ability to focus over short distances. However, it must be noted that they’re not custom-made to your child’s eyes, so they will never provide perfect cover.

 

Bifocal Reading Glasses For Kids

 

Bifocal glasses have two separate optical powers - or, in more simple terms, lenses with two areas: one larger area to view objects further away, and one smaller area at the bottom to see nearby objects, for example reading a book. These are optimal for kids; they’re suited to a range of daily activities, and provide a relatively inexpensive way to account for vision problems.

 

Where To Buy Kids’ Reading Glasses

 

While some kids’ reading glasses are available in physical stores, the best place to buy them is online - it’s much easier to find better deals and good prices, as well as a larger range of options. At VisionDirect, there are thousands of kids’ reading glasses frames available to choose from, like Ray-Ban Junior, Lacoste and SmartBuy Kids

 

How To Choose Reading Glasses

 

The main 3 ways to accurately choose reading glasses are: 

  1. Finding the right power. In order to get the right glasses for your child without a prescription, you’ll need to work out which ones fit them best. Reading glasses typically range from +1 to +4 diopters. Positive diopters cater for short-range vision difficulties and are thus present on all reading glasses. +1 is the weakest (and is usually a safe bet for low power reading glasses for kids), and +4 the strongest. 

  2. Test-driving. When trying on reading glasses, have some reading material to hand - this will help you quickly see how well they help your child’s vision.

  3. Wearing big glasses. This sounds strange, but it’s always best to go large when your child has their first pair of reading glasses. Bigger lenses will cover more of their field of view, and will help more broadly with close-up reading.
