Will your vision slowly get worse if you wear reading glasses constantly?

In brief: Reading glasses

Reading glasses or bifocals are part of aging.
It's going to occur. The muscles in the eye that focuses up close weaken and the lens becomes less flexible. When you use reading glasses, these muscles do not have to work as hard, so the weaken more. But this is a normal pattern. It's like buying a pair of pants with a larger waist size, they feel better, but you'll probably never go back
