Which men's reading glasses should I get?
If you are going to get your very first men's reading glasses, you may be in doubt about which one to choose. First of all, it is important to know your strength. It is normal to need your first reading glasses when you are around 40 years old. Here you will typically start by using +1. After this, the strength will generally increase by +0.5 every five years. It is important to say that spectacle strengths are individual. Therefore, it may be a good idea to visit an optician if you are in any doubt about the strength.
At HART & HOLM you always get a free replacement if you get the wrong strength in the first place. This means that we switch to another strength - completely free of charge.
Once you know your strength, it's time to decide how your glasses should look. Should it be classic black and round or are you more into striking glasses with splashes of colour? You can also take your face shape as a starting point, as it can have an impact on which glasses suit you. See our guide to glasses and face shapes right HERE . However, remember that the most important thing is that you feel comfortable in your new reading glasses. When you feel good, you also look better!
Can you wear reading glasses all the time?
You should only wear reading glasses when you are reading, sitting in front of a computer screen or looking at your mobile phone. Reading glasses are therefore designed to help you see at short distances. Reading glasses only have one strength - also called single strength lenses. If you also need to be able to see further away, then you may need glasses with multi-strength lenses. Here we are talking about glasses with a sliding transition, which have several different strengths in the glass.
Even if you need glasses with multi-strength lenses, reading glasses can still be a good idea. When there is the same strength in the entire lens, you do not have to twist your neck to find the right strength in the lens.
How do I find the right reading glasses for men?
If you are in doubt about what shape your men's reading glasses should have, you can take your face shape as a starting point. Remember that the guide here is indicative and that you should always choose the glasses you feel best in.
Round face: Narrow or square glasses create depth and make the face smaller.
Oval face: You are one of the lucky ones. Most glasses suit this face shape, so there is free choice on all shelves.
Square face: Go for glasses that accentuate your softer shapes. Go for sunglasses that are round, cateye or pilot glasses.
Oblong face: If you have an oblong face, most glasses will suit you. However, be careful with glasses that are very narrow or square. They can easily make your face look even longer.

When do you need reading glasses?
If you find it difficult to see the letters in your book and have to stretch your arm far out to be able to see a little - then it's probably time for a pair of men's reading glasses. It is quite normal to need reading glasses when you reach around 40 to 50 years of age. Fortunately, you will find a large selection of fine reading glasses at HART & HOLM.
Can vision improve with age?
As you age, the lens in your eye becomes stiffer and flatter, making it harder to focus. It is normal to feel it when you are between 40 and 50 years old. When you are around 60 years old, your vision will not usually change any more, but until then, it is normal for your strength to change. In general, your strength will increase by approximately +0.5 every five years.
Fortunately, your presbyopia can be easily corrected with single-strength reading glasses. When you have presbyopia, you need glasses with plus strength, as you have difficulty seeing things that are close. Remember that it can be a good idea to visit your optician if you are very doubtful about your strength.
Are reading glasses plus or minus?
When you need men's reading glasses, it is because you have difficulty seeing things that are close. For example, when you are reading or sitting in front of a screen. That's why you need glasses with plus strength. If, on the other hand, you have difficulty seeing things that are far away, then you must use glasses with negative power. At HART & HOLM you will find both men's reading glasses and minus glasses. See our entire selection of minus glasses for men HERE .
