Pound shop glasses are for reading and they’re OK for that to a point, it’s how I started. As your eyes get worse, which they will, then you’ll find the difference in a proper pair of specs is amazing, especially if one eye is different to the other. Mine seem to deteriorate by +0.5 every test.

Now mine are over +2 I’ve found I need the lens to be constructed differently to readers so that I can use the same pair for reading the kindle and using the laptop. I believe they are known as intermediates.
