In brief: Yes, yes, yes!

To use a computer monitor, you need the ability to accommodate or focus up close.
Presbyopia is common and can be completely alleviated by use of glasses. Plus, lens tiniting can be used to reduce glare and improve contrast. See you ophthalmologist for a full evaluation and refraction.

In brief: Computer eye strain

Computer glasses are effective only if you have refractive error such as myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism.
If you are prepresbyopic(generally under forty) and you have no latent hyperopia, myopia or astigmatism then "computer glasses" are not needed.
