reading glasses to fight myopia dangers?

hello

I’m in my 30’s and have myopia -0.75 on one eye and -1.0 on the other.
I’ve read about a technique to fight myopia in which one uses plus lens
glasses for all close work.
I’m willing to give it a try for a few months as long as it won’t cause me
any eye damage.
with these glasses one should see a slightly blurred image (foggy image).
the thing is I’ve read that blurred images/text can cause deprivation myopia.

Will this be a concern?

also I’m scared that plus glasses might hurt my near vision (Presbyopia?),
thus
causing me problems focusing on close objects in addition to the problems I
have now - focusing on far objects

so what do you think? can I damage my eyes with this method?

Probably will not work for this small amount of myopia.  You will accomplish the same thing by not using your glasses for near work like reading or computer use.

I don't have glasses, never had them.

the question is: can this method cause any type of eye damage because of the points I mentioned?
