Do contacts hurt your eyes?



  1. 0 Votes

    About 4% of people who wear contacts develop complicatations in the eyelid, the conjunctiva, the cornea, and tear film that covers eye.

    Long term wear (over 5 years) appears to “decrease the entire corneal thickness and increase the corneal curvature and surface irregularity.”

    Contacts are increasingly common and 40% of the sight-impaired population use them on a daily basis.  Contacts reduce the amount of oxygen that can reach the eye.  Some people respond badly to this.  Some risks include eye abrasions, infections, ulcers, and dry eyes.  Some people are even allergic to contacts or the saline used to clean them.  The best ways to avoid these problems is to keep both your eyes and the contacts clean and to follow your doctors instructions.
