In brief: Yes

The eyes can change somewhat with aging and the corrective need might be different.
Usually a minor adjustment and sometimes even an improvement for a small amount.

In brief: Yes

Although the major changes are late teenage years after all growing is done, age 40 for near vision, cataract may make the eyes more nearsighted when they advance.
