I can read without mine but prefer my reading glasses, or my regular progressives for short periods, because my left eye has best focus at about 6" and my right eye at 9". There is no location where both are completely sharp. I can find a workable compromise, and you'll see me do that if I read fine print on a label in a store or the like, with glasses propped on my forehead, but it doesn't work well to sit and read a book. Not to mention, it would have to be 6-9" away which is pretty close to hold a book for an hour.
