I’ve been wearing regular readers and just found out I need prescription eyewear, how do I make the change?

Change to Prescription

You've been wearing regular +1.00 eyeglasses and you discover you need +2.00 in one eye and -3.00 in the other. What to do? The change from non prescription eyeglasses to prescription reading glasses can be jarring, especially if you wear pop tops or tube readers.

You can request prescription eye glasses with aspheric progressive lenses, which are as light as the lenses you've been wearing. You could even specify a narrow almond or lozenge-shaped style similar to the tube readers for your prescription glasses. Fortunately, that's not as big an adjustment as buying prescription glasses online.
