I would recommend that you try reading glasses for near work.  Generally, everyone over the age of 40 begins having issues focusing up close due to presbyopia.  Presbyopia is the natural aging process where our eyes’ ability to focus on near objects begin to deteriorate.  It is possible that your vision up close may improve slightly as your eyes continue to heal but you will most likely need to invest in a pair of reading glasses once your vision has stabilized.
