I get really dizzy at night when using my glasses because it doesn't have the right prescription. How bad is it to continue using it?

In brief: Get a new pair

Although wearing the wrong prescription glasses is not dangerous to your eyes, it can certainly be risky for certain tasks such as driving.
Have your prescription updated and you will feel more comfortable.

In brief: Ok to wear

Wearing glasses with the wrong prescription will not injure the eyes; however, if you are having problems, it may be time for a new pair of glasses.
Make an appointment to see your eyecare provider.
