    Eyes are the most delicate organs of human body, and it needs our tender care. If you wear dirty contact lenses, it is easily to be infected with the bacteria. It might lead to blurred vision, blepharitis and any other kinds of eye dieases. So we should wear contact lenses correctly and appropriately. Much attention should be paid when wearing contact lenses. Avoid wearing contact lenses in polluted areas. Remember to take off contact lenses when you wash faces and in swimming pool.

    The answer is absolutely yes. It's very harmful and easily to give rise to eye infection if you wear dirty contact lenses. The eyes is the most fragile part in our body. As we all know, eye infections are caused because of the bacteria, virus, etc. Meanwhile, the bacteria and virus are easy to get in touch with our eyes to lead to red eyes, floaters and bloodshot or else through the dirty contact lenses. What's worse, dirty contact lenses will make it uncomfortable to wear and we can't see clearly through them. Therefore, in consideration of your eyes, you'd better replace your contact lenses with a new one as soon as possible.
