Is It True That Contacts Make Peoples Eyes Bigger When They Wear Them
Possibly: It depends on how nearsighted you are. If only a little or a lot then you may still need glasses for reading.

Not at all: This is an old wives' tale. Your eyes' prescription is a result of their shape and normal changes that occur over time. This built-in shape is not affected by outside sources (except for injury/infection). Glasses correct the prescription that the eye has; they do not alter the eye's shape. As your prescription naturally changes, you will need a stronger prescription, and not the other way around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If glasses are so near the eyes so much so that eyelashes touch the glass lens often...does it affect the eyesight /vision in anyway??
No: No, the position of your glasses doesn't adversely affect your eyes, but will alter the proper focus of the light entering through the lenses.
