In brief: Different power
While many people have eyes that are close in optical needs, sometimes there is a moderate to big difference which will be reflected in a different thickness of the lenses.
If you see well through each side, that might simply be your situation. If one of them is blurry, check with your ophthalmologist for a reason why this has happened.
