My contact lens prescription is significantly different from my glasses prescription. is this normal?

Yes: It is due to a differing vertex distance or where the corrective lens is placed in relationship to the corneal surface - this is normal.

A small difference : Is normal. A significant difference would be unusual but it could just be the way it is written in a different format.
