I have recently gotten a new, stronger prescription for contacts. Can that be making my eyes fatigued?

In brief: Possibly

If the prescription is too strong for you, you may end up having to "focus through" the contact lenses in order to see clearly.
This can cause strain and fatigue. If it persists, see the eye doctor who prescribed the lenses and have your presciption checked again.

In brief: Usually not

However, if you are a myope (nearsighted) and now have full correction, then you have to accommodate more to see things at near and constant accommodation can make your eyes feel fatigued.
