Why do I need a different prescription for spectacles and contact lenses?

Your spectacle and contact lens prescription are always different, as the contact lenses sit directly on your eye, so are usually weaker in power. The spectacles sit on you nose, with a gap from your eye to the back of the lens. This gap is called the back vertex distance and changes the numbers on your prescription, making it read slightly different to your contact lenses.
