If I need reading glasses can I use contacts instead?

In brief: Reading glasses

Using the reading correction in contacts will blur your distant vision and you will have to remove them when you want to do other things other than read.
Sometimes one contact can be used in one eye only in selected individuals who can tolerate this (called monovision). The other alternative is a bifocal contact lens.
