No: people who are nearsighted can often read quite well without their glasses on. Their reading vision actually gets worse when they wear their distance glasses when they try to read. This typically happens when they get into their mid-40s. They develop a loss of focusing power up close called presbyopia (happens to everyone). ...Read more
High powered readers: +5 is a very high powered reading lens, more than twice as strong as normal reading glasses for a 50 year old. The reading power is added to the distance rx to get a final power. So, if a person had a distance rx of +3.00, and a +2.00 reading power, that would add up to +5.00 total. If the vision is less that 20/20, high power gives more magnification. Or, if working very close (8 inches). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends on location: It depends on the location of the epiretinal membrane causing your macular pucker. Reading vision primarily depends on what is happening in your fovea. if the membrane is not affecting the fovea, you will read fine, but see blur elsewhere. Because most people describe macular pucker as distortion rather than blur, consider that the blur may also have other causes like cataract. ...Read more
Age related: You may be starting to enter the focusing of middle age termed presbyopia in which things intermediate and near start to become less clear. It is possible the contacts you are wearing are overcorrected which will accelerate this issue. Have your lens power checked and you can also discuss with the ophthalmologist a thing called monovision which can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
