Reading Glasses Testing

Reading Glasses Testing.jpg

PEL routinely test and asses reading glasses, the use of which is increasing due to populations ageing, and increased computer use. Reading glasses testing identifies and prevents common issues which affect consumers, or cause noncompliance with global standards.

For example, if optical center horizontal deviations cause issues with focal power, it may actually weaken the eyesight of wearers and cause soreness and dizziness.

We understand that your reading glass brand needs to be protected from damaging issues like this and enable consumers to be able to read comfortably for a long time.
