What is +0.00 in reading glasses?

Generally, if your glasses prescription indicates that there is no need for focusing power, you will have good vision. On the other hand, the further you go from zero (whether that number is positive or negative), the worse your vision becomes and the more you need to have your eyesight corrected. Therefore, +1.00 and -1.00 are quite modest; your eyesight is not too bad; you only require 1 diopter of correction. However, if your prescription is +4.50 or -4.50, you will require more clearness. A stronger prescription will be needed, at 4.5 diopters of correction.
