    How Do I Check My Reading Glasses Strength

    1. Use the "Online Reading Test" by clicking here:
    Download the reading test. Open it and “Maximise” the photo. Sit about 40cm away from the computer screen, read the text (without any glasses) until you begin to experience difficulty reading. Refer to the number to the right of the sentence to determine the strength that you need.
    2. Email us a photo of your prescription to "" and our in-house Optometrist will work out the correct strength that you need for you.
    3. You can use our guide below when choosing your required strength of reading glasses depending on your age. But if possible, the best and most accurate way is to confirm your reading prescription strength with your local Optician.

      How can I make my glasses fit tighter or looser?

      You can adjust the bend of the legs so that your glasses fit tighter. Once the leg is heated it becomes more flexible and able to be bended, then when it cools it stiffens again. You can heat it up with a hair dryer for about 15 seconds. Once it is heated, bend it slightly for a tighter fit. Alternatively you can straighten the leg, and then re-create your bend on the leg a bit further up if required. Here is a short video showing this => 


      What is the best way to insert the thin glasses into the thin case?

      Squeeze the middle of the glasses while you insert it into the case. It will also be easier to insert the glasses into the case with the back of the case facing towards you.

      How do I choose the right reading glasses?

      To make sure that you choose the right reading glasses. Use our "Online Reading Test" here:

      Download the reading test. Open it and “Maximise” the photo. Sit about 40cm away from the computer screen, read the text (without any glasses) until you begin to experience difficulty reading. Refer to the number to the right of the sentence to determine the strength that you need.


      What is the average reading glasses strength?

      The average reading glasses strength can will depend on the age. Here is the average reading glasses strengths required per age range:

      +1.00D (40-45 Years Old)
      +1.50D (45-50 Years Old)
      +2.00D (50-55 Years Old)
      +2.50D (55-60 Years Old)
      +3.00D (60-65 Years Old)
      +3.50D (65+ Years Old)


      Can reading glasses help with computer screen fatigue?

      Yes reading glasses can definitely help with computer screen fatigue if you require them. Generally those who are over 40 years of age will need reading glasses. This is because our near focusing ability decreases as we get older as our natural lens becomes less flexible and our eye muscles become weaker. So using reading glasses can then help us to focus and reduce eyestrain and eye fatigue. Owly reading glasses also include blue light blocking technology in our lenses which can further reduce fatigue and improve sleep by blocking the harmful effects of blue light emitted from digital devices.


      How do I clean and maintain my reading glasses?

      To clean and maintain reading glasses, we recommend firstly to rinse your glasses under cold tap water. This will get rid of any dirt or abrasive debris on the lens gathered over time. We then recommend to use a microfibre cloth which is provided with Owly reading glasses, to wipe dry the lens. Using a microfibre cloth will ensure that your lenses will not scratch. If you use your shirt or tissue paper it will be too abrasive and cause scratches on the delicate coating of the lenses.


      Can I wear reading glasses over contact lenses?

      Indeed you can wear your reading glasses over your contact lenses. If you need reading glasses, then contact lenses will generally only correct distance or mostly distance vision. Some contact lens fitting methods can have some reading element incorporated into it. If you feel you're reading is not good with your contact lenses then you can definitely wear reading glasses over your contact lenses to improve your reading as they will provide extra magnification. You can use our "Online Reading Test" here to find the strength of reading glasses that you need:


      What are the benefits of wearing blue light blocking reading glasses?

      The benefits of wear blue light blocking reading glasses are reduced eyestrain, fatigue and better sleep. This is especially if you use digital deices a lot such as your mobile phone, computer, laptop or iPad. The blue light blocking lenses will block harmful blue light emitted from these digital devices. Such blue light has proven to disrupt sleep, and for many people it can cause eyestrain and fatigue over time as well as headaches and migraines. 


      Are reading glasses different from prescription glasses?

      Yes reading glasses are different from prescription glasses. Reading glasses are the same strength in both lenses and basically provide extra magnification to help you read small print. As we get older, usually over 40 years of age, our ability to focus and read small print decreases. When this happens, using reading glasses can help us to focus and read clearer. Prescription glasses on the other hand, are lenses specifically made to correct the refractive error of each individual eye. They are especially helpful if you have a difference of vision in each eye or if you have astigmatism or if you have short-sightedness. These prescription lenses will ensure that each eye sees clearly if you have a complex prescription in each eye. Prescription lenses will also be made as single vision distance lenses (to correct for distance vision), single vision near lenses or prescription reading glasses (to correct for near vision only) or varifocal lenses (to correct for various distances such as distance, intermediate and near vision). Prescription glasses can also be made into bifocal reading glasses or progressive reading glasses.


      How often should I replace my reading glasses?

      We recommend to replace your reading glasses if they are no longer as clear as they use to be. This may mean that you need stronger reading glasses. The strength required for your reading glasses usually changes every 2 years between the ages of 40 years old and 60 years old. Also, if you have had your reading glasses for longer than 1 or 2 years, then there may also be scratches on the lenses, and you should replace them if the lenses are scratched. We also recommend to replace your reading glasses if the frames have become worn or the legs are broken or slackened and cause discomfort when worn.


      Can I use reading glasses for distance vision?

      Generally, you can not use reading glasses for distance vision as they are only focused for reading. However if you are long-sighted, then you may find that some reading glasses help improve your distance vision, depending on how long-sighted you are. You can find our your prescription by getting an eye test from a local Opticians.


      Are there stylish and fashionable options for reading glasses?

      There generally are not stylish or fashionable options for reading glasses. That is why we created Owly Designer Reading Glasses. Our goal with Owly reading glasses was to design them to be stylish and fashionable, with many colours to choose from, so that you can feel and look great when wearing your reading glasses. Many of our customers love the design and colour of Owly designer reading glasses and have received many compliments on them from their friends and family. So we believe that we are achieving the goal which we set out to do!
