Reading glasses and sun reading glasses – also called readers – are ready-to-wear glasses with a lens power, magnification or strength, typically ranging from +1 to +4, to aid with up-close reading. They are a great option for those who don't mind slipping on a different pair of glasses for up-close viewing, or those who only require one prescription. Similarly, readers for outdoor use are available, offering protection against the sun's harmful UV rays. Both are available "over-the-counter" without a prescription or Rx from your eyecare provider. On the contrary, prescription glasses are only available with an individualized lens prescription or Rx. No matter the state of your eye health, make sure to visit your eyecare provider to ensure you're getting the right eyewear for your unique eyecare needs.
Even if you are using extended wear lenses, it is best to remove your contacts when you go to sleep. Wearing your lenses while sleeping will increase your risk for an eye infection. Also, keep in mind that the contact lenses sit on the eye directly, which decreases the amount of oxygen that is available.
The term “20/20” refers to the sharpness of the vision. The top number is the viewing distance between the eye chart and the patient. The bottom number refers to the line on the chart. It is a measurement of how much a person can read when they are 20 feet away from the chart.
The frequency of your appointments depends on your visual health. If you don’t wear contacts or glasses, then you should schedule appointments every two years. People who wear corrective lenses or who are over the age of 60 should visit annually. More frequent checkups might be needed for certain health conditions, such as diabetes, or other eye diseases.
