Reading glasses are eyeglasses that are worn to improve vision when reading or doing other close-up tasks. They are typically used by people who have presbyopia, a common age-related condition that causes difficulty focusing on close objects. Reading glasses can be purchased over-the-counter in various strengths, or they can be prescribed by an eye doctor. They are available in a variety of styles, including full frames and half frames, and can be made from a variety of materials, such as plastic, metal, or a combination of both. Some reading glasses also come with special coatings or features, such as anti-reflective coating or blue light blocking, to help reduce eye strain.
