Like the other replies, I recommend a mid level reader. I'm up to a 3.25 for close reading myself. By the way, 3.25 is the diopter, not the magnification. Diopter is the reciprocal of the focal length in meters. So a 3 = 1/3 meter. I haven't seen them listed in magnification powers.

The only place I can find that high around here is Walgreens and they sell Foster Grants. They are excellent quality but pricey, often on sale for 2 for $29.

Walmart has lower diopters for around $8 and I use a 1 for driving and a 1.75 for computer work.
