Prescription Reading Glasses

Reading difficulties

As we get into middle age, our eyes begin to experience problems with a lack of clarity whilst reading. The effect is termed a 'refractive error', which is an error due to the eye no longer being able to focus the light from an image directly onto the retina.

Presbyopia

The error is known as 'presbyopia' and is due us ageing, especially ageing of our eyes lenses. Around the lens are ciliary muscles that control the shape of the lens when focussing on near and distant objects. In our forties, the lens becomes less pliable and the ciliary muscles cannot contort the lens sufficiently to bring an image to a focal point on the retina. If uncorrected, the side-effects of presbyopia is a tiring of the eyes when carrying out tasks like reading and close work. If close work is continued for longer lengths of time, then this can lead to reddening of the eyes and even headache.

Prescription Reading Eyeglasses

The remedy to presbyopia is corrective prescription glasses that refocus the near image back onto the retina. We provide custom-made reading spectacles, manufactured by a technician with over 40 years in the optics business.

Lenses

We use plastic lenses of standard refractive index. The lenses used for rimless glasses are made of polycarbonate for added strength. Lenses of higher index can be obtained if requested.

Frames

Our frames are selected with a number of parameters in mind. These are robustness of design, a wide variation of design styles and colours and general quality of build and appearance.

Prescription Tinted Reading Glasses

We can also provide prescription sunglasses with lens of four tint strengths in grey or brown.
