High Power Reading Glasses Could Make Your Life Easier

Updated on November 17, 2015

If you can’t find reading glasses strong enough for you at the drugstore, it may be time to move up to high power reading glasses. You won’t find these specialty readers at a local store, but you can order them online or have the glasses you need custom-made for much less than you might think.

High power reading glasses are specs with a magnification of more than +3.00 diopters. But when most people use the term, they’re talking about magnifications of +4.50, +5.00, +6.00 diopters or even greater. You can have high power reading glasses made with magnifications up to +12.00 in cases of extremely poor close-up vision.

Some people who thought they would never be able to read again are now enjoying novels and newspapers thanks to inexpensive readers that they bought online or had someone order for them.

Before we go any further, let me say this: If your vision is worsening, you really need to see an optometrist or ophthalmologist. That’s especially true if your vision suddenly gets worse.

Whether you have a prescription or not, however, you can get high power reading glasses at a very good price on the Internet.

High Power Reading Glasses Online

There are essentially two ways to get high power reading glasses online. You can either choose from the ready-made glasses available from a reputable site or you can have exactly what you want custom-made.

For ready-made glasses, Amazon usually has several choices in stock. These offerings change all the time, however, and I can’t guarantee any high power reading glasses will be available on the day you look.

For custom-made reading glasses, I like to work with Zenni Optical. Glasses start at just $6.95, and there are a wide variety of frame styles and magnification strengths available at that level.

In fact, I wrote a Zenni Optical review for my Clear Your Eyes site that has specific directions on how to order reading glasses from the company.

I intended to only write on the Clear Your Eyes site about low power reading glasses, lubricating eye drops and other things specific to my eye problems, but when I learned that people were having as much trouble finding high power reading glasses as I was finding the low-strength lenses I need, I wrote an article specifically about finding high power reading glasses online for the site.

A Closing Thought

Although my vision is generally pretty good, I know from personal experience how frustrating eye problems can be. The right readers were an important part of returning to productive work for me, and the right glasses can also make a difference in your life and in the lives of the ones you love.

If you think you can benefit from high power reading glasses, don’t hesitate to order some from Amazon or have some made by Zenni Optical.

When you do, you’ll be glad you did. And you’ll never look back.
