Can i use my left contact lens in my right eye?

I kinda have to because in my LAST pair of Contact lens my right one ripped, i noticed I had an extra left eye contact. They both hae same diameter but the prescription for the left eye is diffrent from my right eye. My left eye is -0.75 and right is -1.25. So would it hurt my eyes if i used 2 left contacts? 
My mom said too not wear them. Im wearing them right now and i see no difference. 
Id prefer answers from users that had same experience and or optometrists

Update: lol the thing is my glasses got stolen stupid right LOL, so i reordered my new pair. Im waiting on my glasses. I strain so much in school that i got wrinkles between my eyes beside each eye brow lol

If your contacts are different strengths for each eye, then no you can't use your left contact in your right eye. Go with glasses for now until you can get more contacts. Even if you don't like glasses, it's still best to wear them if you don't have contacts so your eyes don't get worse.

Me. I wear contacts and I've had to deal with this same problem a couple times.
