Optician Q&A

Can I use my contact lens prescription when ordering glasses?


No, you cannot because contact lenses prescriptions are not the same as eyeglasses prescriptions. 

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