Proper Lighting While Reading

As you find a small cozy nook in your living room, favourite chair or prop up the pillows in bed to read a good book, it is important to understand how to best optimize the lighting to prevent eye strain.

There are three factors to consider. Firstly, you need to make sure the light is strong enough to help discriminate letters on the page without straining your eyes. Secondly, the lighting should not be so bright that a glare appears on the page.  And thirdly, an equally important factor, is choosing the right pair of reading glasses.

When you shop for reading glasses, be sure to find the correct magnification of course, but also choose a style that feels comfortable on your face allowing you to see the page without having to tilt your head. If you find yourself tilting your head, it may be due to the fact that the receptive portions of the lenses are not properly positioned.

At, we offer an innovative solution that combines perfect lighting with very comfortable glasses. Our Lightspecs lighted reading glasses have led lights that do not cause glare, provide the correct amount of light in any situation and a lightweight frame for those times when you just can’t put that book down!
