Is this prescription worth wearing glasses? Sphere: +0.50

Customer Question

Is this prescription worth wearing glasses?Sphere: +0.50 for RT/LT
Cylinder: -0.25 for RT/LT
Axis: 045 for both
Near PD: 27.75 for bothI went to the optometrist for an eye allergy and got these numbers from an eye test. Been wearing my prescription since, but after test driving a couple days I don't see much of a difference. My distance is blurrier and the near vision seems magnified slightly. Kind of a bummer since I dig the glasses. Perhaps, I can replace the lenses with Plano lenses somewhere??

Your vision is only slightly lower than normal.

You can even go without glasses as far as I am concerned.
