    I wanted to know the difference between standard +1 reading glasses and computer glasses.

    This question doesn’t relate to prescription, but when you reach in store cabinet and grab a pair of plain reading and computer glasses, both labelled +1 with no filters or additional treatment.

    I wanted to ask professionals and avoid misunderstanding!

    Any physical difference in the lenses, when both are labelled +1?


    Thank you for your time.

    My experience on forums is that some demand to know all, claiming more info is needed to help.

    So, Sister and I have Multiple Sclerosis, relevant only in the sense that I am writing about living with MS.
    My disease is advancing rapidly; I do not have the time or interest for Optometry Course.

    In my writing of MS, I intend to include the public’s lack of factual knowledge from Optometry industry!
    Companies selling Glasses tell you how or why a particular type of Glasses might work for user.
    For people like me, we would prefer to know more about the physical difference in lenses.

    I have asked the "first post question" about the difference between reader and computer glasses, when no filters are added. No one in Optometrist store has given definitive reply, which leads to question, do they know?

    Some people use a reading glass as a computer glass. Eyeglass depends on how far the object is from your eye. And computer glass protects your eye from irritating light.
