Don't worry: Briefly wearing someone else's glasses might cause a mild headache, eyestrain, or even nausea, but there will be no damage done to the eyes or brain.

Wrong glasses: If she wore someone elses glasses and they were too strong, she probably began having a headache withing minutes. Her eyes cannot accommodate to the strong prescription. Advise her not to wear someone elses glasses. The headache should respond to taking off the glasses and tylenol (acetaminophen).
