Somebody with a problem of distant vision can go for surgery but cannot rule out the advent of problems of reading vision and thus will have to go for a pair of reading glasses. Reading glasses are just like normal glasses in terms of look and provide a good distant vision as well as good reading vision. One can go for a pair of reading glasses which provide balanced vision for the purpose of prolonged reading. Usually after 40 year of age the problem of presbyopia arises and people with a perfect 20/20 vision are also likely to need reading glasses soon after reaching the age of 40 to 45 years. People who go for a surgery still run maximum chances of needing a pair of reading glasses.
Reading glasses helps us to focus on all the details of the close objects. For people who have a distant vision problem can go for bifocals which gives solutions to both distance and near vision problems. There are people who can prefer the option of keeping two glasses and the half eyed glasses can help you look at near objects through the reading part below and over the lenses they can see the distant objects.
People who use contact lenses will also need a reading glass when using computers and looking at near objects. These glasses help you to give proper protection to your eyes while using computers and reading. There are people who even need these glasses for sewing. It is highly recommended that people should take care of all the safety norms before buying reading glasses from any general store.

Commonly a soft case is provided with plastic reading glasses. The soft fabric of the case helps protect the lens of the glasses while the soft case provides protection to the glasses.
Usually the reading glasses available at regular drugstore have the same lens power in each lens. Contact lens users also go for reading glasses after attaining a certain age.
