I am 42 years and recently given a prescription for reading glasses. The prescription OS OD +.75 and OS +1.00 SPA. Can I buy non-prescription reading glasses from a store like CVS or Walgreens or should I get the prescription filled?
With your simple prescription, over-the-counter reading glasses are certainly an option. Your doctor may have some available that may be better quality.
