Indicative vision test

We’ve made a simple and indicative vision test to help you find the correct lens strength you need when buying reading glasses. You should sit 40 cm away from the computer screen - it's closer than you think!

Read the sentences below. Once you reach one of the smallest sentences that you're able to read fairly clearly, you should then look to the right-hand column that indicates your preferred lens strength.

If you are in doubt between two different strengths you should rather choose the lowest one.
