    If your prescription is within the expiration time, you can use your old prescription, but make sure ADD number is on your prescription which is specially needed for reading glasses.If not, you should go and to have your eyes examined again to get a new prescription and tell your doctor this pair is for reading glasses.

    An optical will make you reading glasses that are just for reading. They will add the +2.00 to your current sphere power. The Cyl and the Axis will stay the same, because they are just to correct for your astigmatism, if you have one.
