Time to get glasses?

Just got my first eye prescription for mild farsightedness. The optometrist said my eyes could still focus on things fine so I didn't need
glasses, but if I noticed eyestrain or headaches, then I could fix those problems with glasses. I don't notice eyestrain and only get headaches when I'm low on coffee. Is there any reason to go ahead and get glasses? Do glasses accelerate or slow any futher eye degeneration?

My vision has always been fine, but in my old age (23) I figured I should get my eyes checked out since I haven't had any vision tests since some basic screening in middle school.
