In brief: Some

The optics in most over the counter reading glasses are generally fine.
The frames are quite variable especially at the dollar stores. Most pharmacies sell reasonable quality glasses and they are also present at costco and sam's club. Higher end ones, although no better optically are at stores like nordstoms - for the fashion conscious.

In brief: Get an eye Exam

If you are experiencing decreased visual acuity (vision), you need a thorough medical eye exam to determine if there are other needs than just glasses.
Cheater glasses may be helpful.
