If you are nearsighted, you don't need reading glasses in middle age?

I heard different stories. It's very confusing. I am still young and I want to have lasik eye surgery. But people told me that since my nearsighted problem is not that serious, I should live with it and it will actually benefit me when I get old - don't need reading glasses. Is that true?

    No,it is not true.People will have presbyopia when they age 40s . Nearsightedness will not prevent this from happening . But it can balance out the strength of your prescription glasses .For an example , if your nearsightedness is -500 ,your presbyopia is +200, then you only need prescription glasses of -300 to see things far away . Eye surgery does work well to correct eye vision , and if you want ,you can go to have a try .
