Could glasses/contacts cause permanent vision changes?

Not really: Both glasses and contact are corrective devices for vision correction. It help a person to see clear by correcting refractive error. A person's vision could change with time or under certain conditions. Then the person will need to adjust his/her correction with new glasses or contact lenses.
