If you’ve been having trouble reading things up close, it may be time to consider first and foremost, an eye examination, and secondly, a pair of reading glasses.

Reading Glasses can be custom made and dispensed by Dr. Tavel or can be purchased in a “one size fits all” kind of way.

Whats wonderful about pre-made readers is that they are available in so many different styles, patterns, and colors, that you can comfortably go for a new look without risking a lot of money.  Cheap readers allow you the freedom to buy eye glasses for every room in the house.

On the other hand, since they aren’t custom made, pre-made “drugstore” readers can sometimes be more harmful than helpful. Many people need a different reading prescription in each eye, which means that you might only be helping one eye see more clearly. And, since the lenses are not made according to the measurements of the wearer’s eyes, the optical center may be off center causing headaches and eye strain.

Your best bet is to visit your vision doctor and let him/her help you pick out the most appropriate readers for your eyes.
