It won't likely do any harm and may in fact work if the prescriptions are very similar in both eyes. However if the prescriptions are very different it may cause symptoms described as asthenopia, which can include pain, blurring, brow ache, headache, or feelings of nausea.

My contact lens for my right eye is lost. Should I wear the lens for my left eye?
answered 6 days ago by Study
In this circumstance,  and after talking with your doctor,  you probably can wear a lens for the fellow eye as a temporary measure. This assumes that are not wearing an astigmatism or binoculars lens and it is a soft lens.

Please understand that what I write here should not be perceived as medical, legal or financial advice. If you have a particular concern, then you should see and discuss this with a professional.
