My eye doctor told me to try getting OTC reading glasses. Can people wear them all the time?

In brief: Not all the time

You would use them for reading only, not driving, watching tv or anything else.

In brief: Maybe

If you are farsighted, an otc reading glass may clear your distance vision .
This is rare, however, sine=ce very few people meet the appropriate criteria. A custom distance prescription would be the best.
