Before you go ahead and buy non prescription reading glasses, you should probably first go and have a professional assessment for your vision. Although for most of us, the gradual realization that we cannot see small details and fine print as well as we used to is simply a natural part of getting older, occasionally it can signal something more ominous. In fact, professionals assert that a proper eye exam is necessary every two years to ensure that there are no serious problems.

This applies more so if you suffer from health problems such as diabetes.
Diabetics and sufferers from some other health problems are at increased risk for glaucoma, which can rob you of your eyesight if it's not treated. Glaucoma comes on without much in the way of symptoms, apart from difficulty focusing. So don't even think of diagnosing yourself if there's even the smallest chance you're not suffering from straightforward presbyopia.

Once You Get the Go-Ahead

Once you have the okay from an optometrist, you can buy ready-to-wear reading glasses as you please. You can also use online eye charts for future purchases in between professional eye exams. Use of online eye charts exclusively, however, may mean that you are risking your eyesight.

Non prescription reading glasses come in a wide range of styles to suit every taste. You can get very inexpensive ones, which allows many people to buy more than one pair. This could be a practical move, and one that allows you to purchase a variety of attractive styles. After all, it can be very hard to pin your choice down to only one pair.
