When it comes to vision correction, there are two main options: glasses and contact lenses. While both prescriptions are designed to correct the same vision problems, they are different in many ways. The most obvious difference is that glasses are placed about 12 millimeters from the eye, while contact lenses are placed directly on the surface of the eye. This 12 millimeter difference can drastically change the prescriptions between the two.
In addition, contact lens prescriptions require more specifications than glasses. Contact lenses must fit snugly to the eyes to work effectively, so the optometrist will measure the curvature and width of the eye. Vision correction requires a prescription just for you. If you wear glasses, contact lenses, or both interchangeably, your optometrist will issue 2 different prescriptions because the prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses are different.
