In brief: Presbyopia
Correcting for far vision allows the eyes to comfortably focus at distance.
At your age, the ability of the eye to change focus begins to deteriorate and is called presbyopia. That's why you see so many people with bifocals where distance is corrected in the upper part and near vision helped in the lower part.
