The Ultimate Guide to Finding the Best Reading Glasses for Aging Eyes

As we get older, our eyes inevitably start changing - especially when it comes to close-up vision. Presbyopia, the normal loss of near-focusing ability, inevitably sets in by the mid-40s for most people. And even for those without presbyopia, aging can cause other bothersome eye changes like:

  • Difficulty seeing in low-light conditions
  • Increased sensitivity to glare
  • Eye strain and fatigue with reading or computer work

The good news is that affordable, quality reading glasses can counteract these frustrating vision issues and help you maintain clear, comfortable eyesight well into your golden years.


What to Look for in Reading Glasses as You Age

When shopping for reading glasses or "readers," there are a few key factors to consider:

Lens Power

Reading glasses are measured by diopters, indicating the lens power and magnification. Start with the lowest power that allows you to read comfortably, usually +1.00 to +3.00 diopters. As your eyes age further, you may need to increase the lens power.

Lens Material

For superior optics and eye protection, look for lenses made of high-index materials like polycarbonate or trivex. These lightweight, impact-resistant lenses provide sharper vision and filter blue light from digital screens.

Lens Coatings

Anti-reflective and anti-glare coatings reduce eye strain from glare, especially when using devices or reading in bright light. Some lenses also feature blue light blocking to ease digital eye strain.

Frame Style

While functionality is important, you'll also want reading glasses that suit your personal style and face shape. Take the time to try on various frame sizes, colors, and designs to find a comfortable, flattering pair.

 

When to Upgrade Your Reading Glasses

Over time, your vision and lens power needs will likely change. Signs it's time for a new pair of reading glasses include:

  • Increasing difficulty seeing fine print
  • Eye strain or headaches with extended use
  • Excessive squinting or holding material very close

Pay attention to these clues and be prepared to visit your optometrist for an updated vision exam and prescription for stronger reading glasses every few years.

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
