In brief: Not at all

Glasses are like crutches - their job is not to heal you, only to help you with what you've got.
The eye's prescription is essentially a product of its shape; glasses correct the prescription caused by the eye's shape, but do not cause the eye's shape to change for the better or for the worse. In young children there is a possibility of worsening vision from not using glasses, however.
