RGE First Timers

First time shopper here at Reading Glasses Etc?

We offer custom reading glasses and prescription eyeglasses. We have many frame styles and lens options to choose from. We don't sell cheap pre-made readers. All of our glasses are made to order.

What Are Custom Reading Glasses?

We offer you the ability to customize or configure different reading lens types in over 1400 frames. It's very affordable and allows you to get reading glasses that meet your particular needs. Instead of limiting yourself to pre-made cheaters you can get optical quality glasses in the frame style and size that you want. Shopping for these is easy:

  1. Find a frame. Use our filter to narrow down by size, material, style, color, and more.
  2. Select your lens power(s).
  3. Choose a lens option if you want one.

TIP: Full Rimmed Frames have all lens types and options. Rimless frames have less options.
