Latent Hyperopia & Slightly Nearsighted?

Quick Question..

I had it suggested to me on here that I may be a latent hyperope, which makes a bit of sense .. but I was wondering if this was possible since I wear a light RX now while driving & for seeing far away (movies, sporting events, etc..). My right eye is worse with distance than my left. I do get headaches (behind my eyes mostly) when I work on the computer for awhile & I almost find it's BETTER when I wear my glasses that are supposed to be for distance while doing computer work. I just had an eye exam in February (that's when I got the glasses) and she mentioned nothing of this latent hyperopia.

Also, does latent hyperopia have anything to do with why I am waking up and seeing double vision for a quick second before I blink? It's only when I immediately open my eyes after sleeping - never again throughout the day. My vision almost merges together quickly right before my eyes as soon as I wake up. I am under stress right now & have anxiety problems.

I can not make a recommendation on your glasses without knowing the prescription.  The double vision on awakening is due to a mild phoria and is normal.
