Without correction they need to hold it farther away. Look at any farsighted person and you will see them reading at arms length. The farther away the clearer they can see.

If over corrected for near, then the pt has too much plus. Plus lenses cause light to converge. The more plus, the closer light converges. In other words, the more plus, the closer the focal point. So, if over corrected, the the pt will need to hold reading material closer to them.
