I do think I want to get some glasses for 1 reason ,,, when the SHTF
 Quoting: peacetard


I've been wearing glasses since the fourth grade...tried contacts for awhile but sweat and dirt just hurt too much...I get transitions because my eyes are sensitive to light...I like glasses :)

 Quoting: BRIEF


Like its been said here as well that maybe some of us different lids because i have no pain in my eyes and I just think its a scam to get you to go thru contact like a pez dispenser
 Quoting: peacetard


Do you work or exercise and sweat and get dirty?
 Quoting: BRIEF


Sure I play basketball hours at a time, Been swimming all summer and work with old and new carpet with stuff that comes off that never a problem

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.

I love it thats what Im talking about I really want to see if Im a retard or if there are others like me and I am seeing I am not the only one!!!

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.
 Quoting: APOLLO ILLUMINIST


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.
 Quoting: peacetard


The extended wears are significantly more expensive because they last a bit longer, supposedly they are thicker and stronger than dailies. I have the 2 wk disposables and it is $37 for a box of six, and I have different scripts in each eye, so it should be $74 ever six weeks. The current pair have been in my eyes about 7 wks now and are starting to feel scratchy, but it is allergy season for me too. If dailies work for you, I wouldn't change. They're much cheaper.

What is weird like I said I see my dreams with full vision and without them I can not my dreams are blurry not that its why I sleep with them
 Quoting: peacetard


Really? Hmmm, wonder how that works. But you may have a good point. If I fall asleep during the day with my lenses on, I seem to remember or 'see' my dreams more clearly.

You should really give your eyes some air once in a while tho. Even if you really cant feel that the eye is damaged, it might very well be. It may work just fine for several months, or even years, but once a tiny rift damages your eye, it may very well damage your sight for life.

Hope you give your eye some air once in a while! hf

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..
 Quoting: APOLLO ILLUMINIST


Yeah, get this kind!

I have a kid who does this and he was told the biggest danger is that the lens can actually adhere to your eye and peel a tiny bit off when you finally remove it, just a layer of cells. Gradual thinning of the cornea from that and lack of oxygen.

When he's home I nag and get him to remove them but I know when he goes back to school he wears them probably most of a semester.

 Quoting: Bluebird


The lack of oxygen can provoce the eyes to grow bloodvessels into your iris, and with that significantly deteriorate your iris to adapt to different light conditions. Ie, you lose your night vision.

Todays contacts are better than the ones just 5 years ago, and even though the risks are way smaller, doesn't mean they don't exist.

So be wise, check your eyes regularly, and listen to your doctor, and you should be fine.
