Whether you're a dedicated user of Traditional Readers (magnification power) or needing prescription lenses through CliC Rx, rest assured you're getting the same level of comfort, convenience, and functionality with CliCs. Our innovative designs boast features like a magnetic front connection, a permanent headband, and adjustable temples, ensuring a fit that surpasses any other option on the market. After endless requests, it became 'clear' that prescription lenses in CliC frames would not only enhance your sight, but expand the offering of lens options available. Join us as we dive into the differences between these two options and discover how each one can elevate your visual experience.

Traditional Readers:
These type of readers can be found on our CliC Readers website. CliC Readers offer a spectrum of magnification strengths making close-up objects appear clearer. Whether you're perusing a novel, analyzing data on a screen (which our blue light option is perfect for), or tinkering with intricate tasks, our Readers ensure crystal-clear vision tailored to your needs by providing:

  • No prescription needed from an eyecare provider.
  • Magnification strengths increase in incremental steps, typically ranging from +1.00 to +3.50 diopters.
  • Users can choose the appropriate magnification strength based on their individual vision needs without needing a prescription.
  • Will always be a "+".
  • Higher values indicate stronger magnification.
  • Consider using our CliC Eye Chart to find the strength you need.

Oh, wait! One more thing before we dive into prescriptions available on CliC Rx, we want to highlight one of its early advantages: the opportunity to order a different reading strength for each eye. So if you've been wowed by the first part of this blog and eager to satisfy your CliC craving through readers, but got stuck on the fact that your eyes aren't identical (a common occurrence), our CliC Rx site accommodates this need. You can simply choose different magnifications for each eye during the ordering process, ensuring personalized customization of your Readers.

Prescription Reading Glasses:
At CliC, we recognize that everyone is unique as our glasses, which is why we now customize our frames with your  personalized prescriptions on our CliC Rx website.

Need glasses for distance vision? No problem. Want glasses for distance and near? Check out our bifocal selection. The possibilities are endless. Each lens is meticulously crafted with unparalleled precision and accuracy to elevate your vision and comfort.

At CliC Rx, we're dedicated to ensuring that you're fully informed about your order. That's why we provide key terms to help you interpret your prescription, which our CliC Rx ordering system will prompt you for when placing an order.

  • OD (Right Eye): OD is short for Oculus dexter in Latin which refers to your right eye.
  • OS (Left Eye): OS is short for oculus sinister in Latin which refers to your left eye.
  • Near Vision (NV): Near vision would mean your prescription is only for reading.
  • Distance Vision (DV): Distance vision means your prescription would correct your ability to see things far away.
  • Pupillary Distance (PD): Pupillary distance indicates the distance in millimeters from the center of one pupil to the center of the other. Refer to the Measure your PD page for guidance.
  • Minus (-): A minus (-) sign next to the number indicates nearsightedness. A person would experience trouble seeing far away.
  • Plus (+): A plus sign (+) sign next to the number indicates farsightedness. A person would experience trouble reading something that is close.
  • Sphere (SPH): Sphere indicates the lens power needed to see clearly.
  • Cylinder (CYL): The cylinder on your prescription indicates the lens power needed to correct an astigmatism. This means your eye's cornea or lens is not completely spherical. If blank it means you do not have an astigmatism.
  • Axis (AX): Means the front of your eye is irregularly shaped. Anyone with an astigmatism will have a number from 1 to 180 on their prescription that determines the orientation of their astigmatism correction.
  • Addition (ADD): For multifocal prescriptions. This number indicates the added power needed to correct your near vision if your prescription is primarily for distance correction.

By providing these components and values within a prescription, you can ensure CliC Rx lenses are precisely tailored to their specific visual requirements.
