Can someone correct his vision to not have to use reading glasses as he gets older?

In brief: Maybe

There have been some surgical procedures attempted in the past that never really became popular in the us for correction of presbyopia ( or the need for reading glasses).
Of course, available options now include monovison with wearing a contact lens in one eye or having refractive surgery in one eye for reading or cataract surgery with placement of a multifocal implant lens.
