No: It is the power of your prescription that will make your eye look smaller or larger.

A 50-year-old member asked:

Could 500 power lenses makes your eyes small?

Confused : I presume you're asking if a -5.00 lens (myopic prescription) will make your eye appear small, and the answer is YES. Just the opposite is true with a +5.00 lens (makes eye appear larger, or magnified).
