No problem: Don't worry. Wearing someone else's prescription glasses, even if a strong prescription, won't cause any damage to the eyes. If briefly worn, it might cause a mild headache or nausea.

Inappropriate glasse: Are these prescription glasses made for her? If they are, bring them back to your ophthalmologist to make sure they were ground properly for the prescription. She should stop wearing them until they are checked. Also make sure the lenses are not reversed r-l.

Daughter complaining about her new eye glasses, what could be wrong?

Time v. re-check: It may take some time (a day or so) to adjust to new glasses, but if it's been longer than this and she's still complaining, it may be worth going back to make sure she received the correct Rx and lenses.
