Is It Okay To Wear One Prescription Of Contact Lenses And A Different, Older Prescription Of Eyeglasses?

Question: Is it okay to wear one prescription of contact lenses and a different, older prescription of eyeglasses?

Answer: Well, both contact lenses and glasses are merely two tools to enable you to see better, so you really don't need to worry about causing any permanent injury by wearing a pair of glasses with a prescription that is out of date. You won't get the best vision with the out-of-date prescription, but as long as you can see adequately, you don't have to worry that you are going to harm your eyes.
