Yes, it magnifies the print because their eyes are unable to accommodate (or focus) at a close distance. This happens to everyone as they age, generally in mid 40's and beyond. There is no need for these glasses for anything beyond a few feet, or that is not small like 'print'.
This is what they are for (to read) and why people wear them. :)
No there are not reading glasses for people who can read without them. Though you can wear them and force your eyes to accommodate and still read with the reading glasses on.. with normal vision. It isn't healthy, and is likely to cause eye strain and headache.
What you need are cosmetic glasses. Simple clear, non prescriptive, lenses in frames of your choice. People do wear glasses for style .. although it isn't nearly as common as for function. =)
Go to an eye place and look around, tell them what you desire.. they will accommodate you , I assure :)
Also, you might as well get a thorough eye exam, you probably have some slight degree of astigmatism like the majority of humans.. so you could get a slight, unnecessary, prescriptive lens and have a legitimate reason for the glasses.
