    I used to go up to a month almost at a time without taking my lenses out. These days I try to take them out before bed, but I might forget and leave them in a few nights (2-3). What's really fucked up is I just read how bad that is for your eyes, like it can literally blind you almost overnight and cause tons of other problems. Now I'm freaking out and feeling anxious :/

    You have a 73% chance of losing your eyes at this point.

    I have the dailies. Throw em away each evening.

    So, no.

    You won't go blind, Gar. But leave em in and you'll wake up with your eyes welded shut with eye snot.

    I needed visual aids in fifth grade. We can't all be Canadian demigods.

    you can get contacts that you leave in for up to 30 days. Or just have the eye surgery to correct you site. It's not really expensive and makes you see better.

    I used to have the night and day 30 day wear contacts. I'd leave them in for 2-3 months at a time. If I wanted to use them longer than 3 months then I'd take them out occasionally.

    I don't use the night and day anymore so now I only sleep with them in 2 or 3 days per week.

    I've been wearing contacts like this since 8th grade.

    Gary has taken over 6,500 loads to his face. I think he may be able to handle a bit of snot in his eyelashes.
