In brief: Yes.
If you only have glasses for reading, you are likely presently not wearing glasses for distance.
If you are asking about wearing contacts for distance then you must need a correction for distance that you are not wearing. You can either wear a progressive spectacle correction, contacts for distance and keep using your reading glasses, be fit with progressive contact lenses or monovision contacts.
