Dr. James :

20/20 vision is very good.

Dr. James :

In people over 45, it is common that you have 20/20 vision for distance vision, but blurry vision when trying to read.

Dr. James :

In this case, over the counter reading glasses is helpful.

Dr. James :

You can try a +1.50 or +2.00 to suit your needs.

Dr. James :

The higher the number, then closer the reading material needs to be to your face.
