How To Order Reading Glasses Only From Your Progressive Rx

If you wear progressive eyeglasses, but you want to buy a separate pair of glasses dedicated to reading, how do you figure out your reading power?

It's pretty simple, but take a second to absorb the info. It involves simple addition, but can be subtly tricky. All you have to do is add the OD sphere to the OD "Add" for the right eye reading power, and the OS "sphere" and OS "add" for the left eye reading power. In the example below, both eyes will have a +2.75 reading power. How to read your reading glass power from a progressive prescription

A common mistake occurs when people add up the wrong numbers. Be careful not to add up your sphere to your sphere, or your "add" to your "add". A common mistake in interpreting your progressive prescription

Keep in mind that your sphere may be a negative number. When this happens, utilize the usual rules of adding negative to positive numbers. In the example below, note that -.75 + +1.50 = +.75, so the reading power is +.75, and that is for both eyes, since both eyes in this rx are the same.

Optician Josh of My Eyeglass Club explains this all in the video below. Since reading glasses are our only business, we partner with My Eyeglass Club to fill the prescription needs for some of our customers.

The Best Way To Find Glasses On

Using the search box for keywords isn't always the best way to find your perfect readers. We encourage you to browse the categories.

Also, by default it will give too many results on generic terms. For example, "blue filter blocker lenses" may also bring up frames that are the color blue. We can hone customer search terms to get redirected the the proper page, but we may not have discovered YOUR search term to fix it yet. It's best to get an idea of the #1 most important physical property for you. Is it the lens type? For example, "sunglasses" that are bifocal? Or the shape? Like say, aviator? Try to choose that category. ONCE in the category, you can further hone it by power, and gender. The more specific the category, the easier your search will be. For example, starting with "women's glasses" category may not be the best idea, because you STILL have to sort through about 50% of over 600 styles. It may be easier to start with a smaller category, like "sunglasses", then filter out the "womens". This video to learn the best way to quickly find your pair.
