How do I figure out what power I need?

Last Updated: Nov 14, 2017 03:23PM EST

There are a few different methods you can use to discover your reading power.

1. Consult with your eye doctor and have them recommend a reading power based on your prescription. We highly recommend this method, as your eye doctor gives the most accurate information for your reading requirements.

2. Use our printable diopter chart and instructions on how to assist in trying to determine your reading power at home:

3. Visit a local store that carries reading glasses and try on different powers to determine which one works best for you.

Once you know your reading power, then you would be able to shop any of our reading glasses. Our fully magnified readers have the power distributed throughout the entire lens while our bifocals are completely unmagnified in the top portion and have the power in the lower portion of the lens.
