Certain habits and activities shorten the life of your prescription contact lenses and could cause possible eye infections. Even little things make you more vulnerable to infections or can cause damage to your contact lenses. Here are some top habits or actions you should avoid when wearing your contact lenses to keep your eyes healthy.
Don't Wear Them While Sleeping
Many contact lenses are marketed as extended wear or as comfortable for sleeping.
There may be a few times in your life that your contacts dry out and simply fall out, but they may roll around in your eye and get lost in your eye. It can be scary when your contact is lost in your eye, but there are ways to get it out. If you're worried that your contact lens is all the way behind your eye, this cannot happen. The conjunctiva (lining of the eye) won't allow this to happen, so your lens can be lost in your eye, but it's most likely along the upper eyelid.
