Is it unhealthy to wear contact lenses since it does not allow your eyes to breathe?
Alright, so we all know that contact lenses does damage to our eyes to some degree. No matter what advertisements say, something that's constant touching the most sensitive part of your exposed body is obviously unhealthy. I'm 14 this year and i really need contacts. My glasses are extremely annoying and unfashionable, but I'm scared to get contacts. I don't know how i'll be able to put something into my eyeball. and how to pinch back out without assistance. I don't know how i will accept the fact that something's sticking to my eye all the time. I need to know what are the long term side effects of contacts lenses, what damages it does to the eyes, and how healthy they are. Are there eye diseases related to contact lenses. And no, i'm talking about wearing CLEAN lenses. Not like dirty lenses cuz i know you can get infections from that. Anything important about contact lenses would be helpful to me please. i want them so bad but i need over come the fear first. thanks.
