No: Just wearing glasses will not worsen your vision. You may need to investigate the real cause of your blurry vision. For instance, if you have a new-onset diabetes, your vision may continue to be blurry until you fix a blood sugar problem. Although it would be extreme, a glaucoma or other specific eye diagnosis may cause blurry vision. See you Family Doc for an exam to include bloodwork.
