Contact Lenses

I think I put this in the right forum... anyways if not, can a mod please move it to the correct one TIA. So I was just wondering if anyone knew why my contact prescription is silghtly lower than my actual eye glass prescription.

because contacts sit directly on the eye, the power doesn't need to be as high as glasses.

Yes it has to do with the difference in distance between the corrective lens and your eye

if you're nearsighted (-) your contact lens prescription is less
if you're farsighted (+) your contact lens prescription is more

There's only a change in your prescription if your glasses prescription is higher than +4.00 or -4.00
