Ready-made reading glasses are the type of glasses that are usually bought when people experience eye fatigue or blurred close-up vision, but no other vision problems. These types of glasses are the most frequent store-bought glasses. They have magnifying lenses that are offered in different strengths. Reading glasses can be purchased as prescribed and non-prescribed versions. Reading glasses usually have single vision lenses, and they are generally only used to correct close-up vision.
