Can poor eye sight come from a lack of sleep? Or sleeping in the wrong position?

Usually this is a function of genetics and the normal aging process.

In brief: No

Your eyes can feel tired if you don't get enough sleep.
If you bury your face in the pillow and put pressure on one eye it can cause distortion of the vision for a while when you wake up, but no permanent change.
