What Are Non-Prescription Glasses?


Non-prescription glasses are just glasses with lenses that are not tailored to your vision. They are often referred to as plano glasses. For example, reading glasses you’d buy in a bookstore. These still have lenses designed for long- or short-sightedness, just not your long- or short-sightedness. You don’t need a prescription to buy these - you just choose which ones you think suit you best. You can also get non-prescription blue light glasses, like those with zFORT®.
