A member asked:

Was having trouble seeing text on computer unless i looked over top of glasses. went to vision center & got new glasses but can not pick them up because corona virus caused business to be closed. is it ok to get reading glasses to see text or wait.

It would be quite reasonable to try low power (+1.25) reading glasses to see if they help, while waiting to pick up your new glasses

Reading glasses can be used as a temporary measure while you await your prescription lenses.
