    Yes, reading glasses RX is the same as the prescription that you get from your eye doctor. But you should tell your eye doctor that you want to have a pair of reading glasses so that they would give you the ADD value.ADD means near addition which is used for making single vision reading glasses, computer glasses, bifocal & progressive eyeglasses. In USA and some other countries, eye doctors are required by Eyeglass Rule to release a copy of your prescription after each eye exam at no extra cost.
