The acuity of distance vision is the traditional indicator for whether one needs distance vision glasses.
Our ophthalmologist Markku explains this indicator:
Visual acuity is ranked with numbers, so that 0 indicates blindness, 0.3 is at the limit of visual impairment, 0.5 is what is required for driving, and 1.0 is fairly good and normal. Young people, and other sharp-sighted persons, may score as high as 2. The higher the number, the better.
Declining distance vision is usually best improved by using distance or multifocal glasses.
