Computer glasses or reading glasses?
For many people it is unclear whether they need computer glasses or reading glasses. And what are actually the differences between these two? When you get more trouble reading at a short distance, you can benefit greatly from reading glasses. From an age of about 43 years it is quite normal for your eyes to deteriorate and that you can no longer do without reading glasses. The disadvantage of reading glasses, however, is that they are only suitable for a reading distance of 30 to 35 centimeters. A computer screen is usually further away, namely at about 50 to 60 centimeters distance. Reading glasses won’t help you, while you actually need them. Then computer glasses are the glasses you need.
When are computer glasses needed?
