+2.50: +2.50 would probably be the closest, but try them on. Pick the weakest ones that let you read at a comfortable distance. Remember, the stronger the glasses, the closer you have to hold the reading material and the smaller the range of vision. So, for a computer distance you might try a 1.25.
