Selecting the Proper Strength for Reading Glasses
- Print this page using your printer. This chart cannot be used by looking at it on your computer monitor due to the resolution and size differences among computers.
- The eye chart below is 5 inches wide. Make sure it is exactly 5 inches wide on your printed copy. If your copy is not 5 inches wide, please call us Toll Free at (800)435-1957 and we will gladly mail a FREE eyechart for you to determine the proper strength.
- To find the strength you need, read the eye chart WITHOUT GLASSES from a distance of about 14 inches. The first line you have difficulty reading has a lens strength to the right of it. When ordering your reading glasses, select this strength.
ATTENTION: Non-prescription ready-to-wear glasses are not intended to replace prescribed corrective lenses or examinations by an eyecare professional. Regular eye tests by a qualified professional are necessary to determine your vision needs and eye health status.
