What strength reading glasses do I need?

The strength of all reading glasses is measured in dioptre, with units increasing by 0.25 dioptre depending on the power of the lens.

The power of reading glasses ranges from +0.75 dioptre to +3.00 dioptres. Both lenses are the same power, which is indicated by a permanent marking on the inside of the frame or with a removable sticker on the lens. Typically, one of the following numbers will be displayed:

  • +0.75
  • +1.00
  • +1.25
  • +1.50
  • +1.75
  • +2.00
  • +2.25
  • +2.50
  • +2.75
  • +3.00

The important thing to remember when choosing reading glasses is, the higher the number, the greater the power of the lenses. So, glasses with a marking of 1.0 are low power, while those with a marking +3.0 are high powered.

You can conduct your own reading glasses test by using a dioptre chart. Simply position the chart at a distance of around 14 to 16 inches from your eyes (or how you would read a normal-sized print) to determine the strength of the lens you require. However, this should only be used as a basic guide to determine which strength of reading glasses you require.
