Finding the Perfect Reading Glasses for Astigmatism at RX-Safety


Astigmatism, a common vision condition caused by an irregularly shaped cornea, can make finding the correct reading glasses more challenging than for those with simple presbyopia. However, with RX-Safety, getting custom-made reading glasses that correct astigmatism is straightforward and accessible. In this blog, we’ll explore how to order reading glasses for astigmatism from and clarify which part of your prescription addresses this condition.

Understanding Astigmatism and Reading Glasses

Astigmatism distorts or blurs your vision at any distance, not just close-up. This means that more than standard reading glasses, typically designed only to magnify text for closer viewing, may be required if you have astigmatism. Instead, you’ll need reading glasses that also correct the specific distortions caused by astigmatism.

The Prescription Element for Astigmatism

In your eyeglass prescription, astigmatism correction is indicated by three numbers under the headings “Cylinder” (CYL) and “Axis.” The CYL number represents the degree of astigmatism, and the Axis value, which ranges from 0 to 180 degrees, indicates the orientation of the astigmatism. These values, alongside the “Sphere” (SPH) number that corrects near or far-sightedness, ensure your reading glasses not only help you see text more clearly but also correct the blurriness or distortion caused by astigmatism.
