Hello 1. She can use glasses for near work only 2. add in near vision means that her near power would be 2.75 D in addition to distance vision. So near vision number is 3.50DS/+0.50DCx160 in right eye and 3.25DS/0.5DC X 20 in left eye

As per the prescription given I think she is comfortable for distance without glasses. So she can use glasses for near work only.
