Reading glasses

I am 45 yrs of age. For the last two months i have been having problems in reading. I have to keep the book at a distance of about 1 feet to be able to focus. Can i get readymade over the counter reading glasses or do they have specific power??

Yes, one can use that small pocket specs that have predefined number available over the counter, but only after getting it checked by an ophthalmologist to know the number exactly, and whether it will be helpful in your case or not.
