No relationship: A significant portion of the population wears powerless sunglasses for sun protection and has no eyesight change. If you want to wear regular eyeglasses with no power in them (some do for safety reasons) then go ahead and don't worry about your eyesight.

Yes and No: Under the age of 10 when the visual system is still developing it is essential to wear the correct prescription. Over that age, wearing the wrong prescription will not damage your eyes, you just won't see as well.
