Can I use my contact lens prescription when ordering glasses?
They differ because eyeglass lenses are placed further from the eye compared to contact lenses, which are applied directly on top of the corner. Generally, contact lens prescriptions are stronger than glasses prescriptions and can lead to vision problems if worn improperly for an extended period of time.
