    You can find cheap reading glasses, just about anywhere (to include your local dollar stores). The effectiveness, though, will depend upon the prescription that you need. It is always better to go see an eye care professional for a prescription reading pair. Once you get the prescription, then you can usually have an inexpensive pair of "reading only" glasses made at your local optical. I think walmart actually does them for about $40.

    The reason it is import ant to get your prescription is because if you choose the incorrect ones, then it could cause more eyestrain. Also, very few people have the same exact prescription in both eyes, but the over-the-counter reading glasses have the same Rx in both eyes. This could also cause more strain.

    Hope this helps. Good Luck!

    The cheapest place that I know that carries decent reading glasses is the 99 only store. I found a nice pair of Foster Grant reading glasses for my mother there.

    1 decade ago does single vision lenses for $25. Prescription lenses are the most expensive part of the eyewear purchase. If you have a recent prescription, you can get the lenses made online at this company. If you already have glasses you like, you can send them in. If you know which ones you want, send them an e-mail at and they will give you a good price on the frames.
