I am long sighted and therefore need glasses for reading, my long distance vision is perfect. Correspondingly, short sighted people do not need glasses for reading, their short sight is perfect but will need to wear glasses most of the time for distance vision.

Short Sightedness/Myopia is a condition when a person can see near objects clearly, but distant object blurred. Due to a defect in eye,the image is formed before the Retina, instead of On retina & hence the blurred vision. A double Concave lens is usually used to correct the vision.
Long sightedness/hyperopia, on the other hand is an opposite condition. The person sufferring from this condition can see distant objects clearly, but near objects appear blurred. This is because the image is formed beyond Retina. A double convex lens is usually used to correct this condition.
