    Wearing extended contacts can increase the risk of getting eye infection, such as pink eye. If it is serious enough, you may suffer Acanthamoeba keratitis and fungal eye infections which can lead to permanent vision loss.

    Although extended contacts are designed for long time wearing, it is still not always safe to wear them. Extended contacts still need to be cleaned regularly and if not, the opportunity for growth of bacteria would increase, which can endanger the health of the eye.
