Did you know that an eyeglass prescription is no substitute for a contact lens prescription? In fact, the two are very different. An eyeglass prescription measures for lenses that are positioned in a frame in front of your eyes. A contact lens prescription measures for lenses that sit directly on the surface of the eye. Furthermore, an improperly fitting contact lens can damage the health of your eyes.
