Can I use glasses along with contact lens?

Q: I am a 29 years old male suffering from myopia. I use glasses in both eyes of power minus 8D. My vision is stable for the past 10 years. I want to change over to a thinner lens. The problem is that I don’t want to avoid using glasses completely. So I was thinking about using contact lens of power like minus 6 and correct the remaining error in vision using glasses. Is there any harm in doing this? I don’t want to correct the whole error with lens because when I used lens last time with full correction, I was having difficulty in reading near things. Please guide.

A:There is no harm in wearing contact lenses with slight under correction with which you can manage near as well as distance vision without glasses. In the past, your contact lenses must have been over corrected to cause difficulty in near vision as you are not over 40 years yet when you start to have near vision problem. You can also wear contact lenses and glasses combination to give you required vision.
