Today the eye doc said I'm borderline nearsighted. What does this mean and will I need glasses in the future? Family history of myopia and astigmatism

In brief: Slightly myopic

Sounds like your prescription is not strong enough to need glasses.
But myopia does generally increase, so you could require glasses in the future. Take care.
