Can they make lens that the left eye and right eye are different?  Example: long range, right eye good, left eye bad....

 Yes Jim I have them

I would look at a back up like in the image below if I was you. 

I have the same problem.  My dominant eye (right) is worse than my left.  Went to the optician and got the exam and new glasses.  Made the mistake of buying continuous grind trifocals.  Worse mistake

That is exactly what happens. As the muscles round the eye weaken reading vision becomes more impaired but distance sight improves. Irritating because you have to change lenses again. I have prog

Glasses are almost always made with differing prescriptions for each eye, however I think you're talking about using prescriptions for reading vision in one eye and driving vision in the other eye (or similar) where as normal glasses have the end aim of correcting each eye to 20/20 (or as close as practicable).

This is in fact that is done sometimes with 'lens replacement surgery' which is used for people suffering from extreme long sightedness.  It can have implications related binocular vision and estimation of distance however and I've heard of people getting glasses made this way when they have trouble adapting to multi focals.

 

I confess to no personal experience with this though.

For years, my uncorrected vision was the same in both eyes, and I am very near sighted.  Most of the time, I would wear a contact lens in my right eye that is better for distance (driving, etc.) and in my left eye I would wear one better for reading.  Not a huge difference in the reading lens, but just enough to read most average sized print without reading glasses.  Years ago, my optometrist told me this was common.  I found that for sports like tennis, putting the distance lens in both eyes was much better, so I would do that.
