    Reading glasses are only designed for near vision with the distance for "12 to 14". That means you can only use your reading glasses see things which is at "12 to 14" distance. If you use them to view far away, it won't let you see clearly and often cause blurry vision. So it is normal for reading glasses to cause blurry vision when you view far.

    Yes, it is normal for reading glasses to cause blurry vision when view at a distance. The lens of your eyes and the focusing muscles can't function well when you use reading glasses the observe things in the distance. People often need to take off their reading glasses when they want to view at a distance.

    Yes. It's normal. Your prescription reading glasses is just used for reading or seeing the things near around.It can't be used for viewing far away.

    I had the same problem as you.When I asked my doctor, he said that wearing the reading glasses was not because my eyes would get weaker but because I would get used to seeing so much clearer with the reading glasses on. You'd better visit your eye doctor to give you an eye check.Then you will get your prescription.

    Well, reading glasses can make your sight blurry if you use them to view things in the distance. If you think put on and take off your glasses from time to time is very boring, you can consult the optician to see whether you can get a pair of bifocal reading glasses that can be used at both times. good luck!
