I was told 10 hrs of your eyes not breathing you can go blind? I think its a scam to get you to spend money on new sight every other month

Yeah, they say I'm gonna get infection or seomthing...

I leave my contacts in for months at a time too and sleep in them. I simply replace them when my eyes begin to burn

Bacteria and other shit accumulate in your contacts, that why youre supposed to take them out and clean/disinfect/replace them - also your eyes need to be able to 'breathe'.

Things may be 'fine' right now but just wait til one of your eyes gets fucked up and then you cant wear contacts for 3 months. Or worse you can permanently fuck up your vision...

the problem is your eyes move when you're asleep and if you move the contact lens it could scratch your eye and cause really bad damage or the scratch could lead to infection, its just not a risk you want to take... as someone who is blind in one eye i wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy!

I rub my eyes all the time.
I never squirt any eye drops in my eye to clean them.
I leave my contacts in for up to 6 months at a time.
I sleep in them.
I swim with them in.

i would have thought since your sleeping and cant react to some dirt getting in your eye at night having a lens trapping said dirt against your eye ball while you move unconsciously in your sleep is not a good idea.

kinda just common sense and an incident waiting to happen!

im sure you were all used to getting stuff in the eye, its just not so nice when its a speck of glass, sand or something else equally as devastating not taking into account just the abrasion of a dry eye against a lens when in REM.

The technology of contact lenses are improving all the time, very different than ones a few decades ago

There are contacts you can keep in overnight for a few weeks, You just have to visit your eyecare provider and ask them whats availiable..

Re: I wear contacts in my sleep for over 4 months,,,
heres a qoute..on Extended wear.

Most extended wear (EW) lenses today are made of silicone hydrogel lens materials that allow significantly more oxygen to reach the front surface of the eye, compared with earlier soft (hydrogel) lens materials.

Several extended wear lenses are FDA-approved for up to seven days of continuous wear, and at least two brands of silicone hydrogel EW lenses — Air Optix Night & Day (CIBA Vision) and PureVision (Bausch + Lomb) — are approved for up to 30 days of continuous wear.

Also, some gas permeable lenses have received FDA approval for up to 30 days of continuous wear.

Re: I wear contacts in my sleep for over 4 months,,,
I've done this for the past 10 years. I never take them out except to change them. I've only had one eye infection in that time frame and it was from pink eye and not related to wearing contacts.

My eye doc know this and checks the vascularization of my eyes-he says everything looks fine. I get the extended wear that can be worn overnight now, but for years I used daily disposables for months at a time.

I find that the less I touch them, the longer they last and the only thing that really messes them up is crying. I'll get calcium deposits on them and have to throw them out.

It is actually very uncomfortable not to have contacts in my eyes, it feels like someone is blowing right into my eyeball and it makes my eyes water profusely. Again, my doc says that's normal, they're used to having a protective shield.

These days they make contact more breathable so your eyes get enough O2, and again my eye doc is fine with me wearing mine 24/7.

Sheeez I never thought to buy the extended wears maybe then I can go for a year without taking them out?

Nobody has a remark about the fact you can see your dreams in perfect vision with them in and not without them I think thats the better of the subject here and i think its friggin weird.
