Can wearing my glasses prescribed for nearsightedness hurt my close up vision?

I can see things perfectly up close, but I have trouble seeing things far away (nearsightedness). I recently got a prescription for glasses (my first pair ever).
As I was leaving the eye doctor's office, she said offhand something along the lines of "If you only wear them occasionally, you'll probably never need reading glasses". I took this to mean wearing my nearsighted glasses will actually hurt my ability to see things close up.
YANMD, but is there any truth to her statement? Will wearing my nearsighted glasses slowly hurt my ability to see things up close?
