In brief: Glasses
No. Glasses correct your vision.
It is a common myth that glasses make your eyes worse.

In brief: Generally not
Glasses are designed to improve the focus of the eye and improve clarity.
Sometimes patients who start wearing readers feel that their near focus becomes more difficult and to a certain extent this is true. But eventually, readers become essential whether glasses are used initially or not.
