If you are looking for a 0.50 reading glasses, or lower, this probably means that you have computer vision syndrome, dry eye, or any other eye-related problem, that is making your eyes suffer, when you try to work on things that are placed closer to you.
Let’s say you are an avid reader, and till now, you’ve had no issues to focus on your books. But, one fine day, somewhere after you’ve crossed 50, you pick up a book to read, only to find that you are unable to read the words clearly. Have they been appearing a little blurry lately, or do you’ve to squeeze your eyes to focus on the words? If yes, probably it’s time to get your eyes tested and get reading glasses of .50 prescription, or lower.
The lowest power reading glasses are as follows, 0.25, 0.50 and 0.75. These are hardly anything, so you can find them in any shop easily. However, if your diopter number is greater than 1.00, you may need to visit a professional ophthalmologist. You only need to wear these reading glasses when reading, of course, or probably when using a computer, or a mobile phone.
However, keep in mind that most of these reading glasses are cheap, and do not have an antiglare coating, plus, they are prone to scratches, thus, you need to be a little more careful while using them.
If you can see perfectly fine, but suffer from constant itchy and watery eye, you can still benefit from a 0.50 reading glasses. But, make sure you buy them from a reputed store, so that they are anti-glare and maybe have a slight tint, to reduce the strain on your eyes.
Go to your nearest eye shop and find a good 0.50 reading glass for yourself, and bid goodbye to the watery and itchy eye, and see clearly.
