I don’t normally need glasses for reading, but for electronics, especially
surface mount stuff, I use a big lighted arm mount magnifier like Bill
Degnan.  I even have a couple of microscopes for really tiny stuff.  I also
have a variety of head mount magnifiers, hand held ones with and without
lights, and a folding 5” one I take to workshops.  All the portable ones
have been misplaced several times each.  Buying a replacement usually makes
the lost ones reappear.  I’ve used cheap reader glasses, but try not to
keep them on for long as they give me headaches.

John H. - Hate to say it, but I think you have to try a bunch of different
things and see what works for you.
