    I think no matter what it is, contact lenses or glasses, neither can guarantee that vision is no longer falling. If your vision has declined after you wear contact lenses, it does not mean it is contact lenses that affect your vision, it has something to do with the usual eye using. For many owners of a stable degree, wearing contact lenses will not worsen eyesight. But on the other hand, improper wearing of contact lenses have an impact on vision, contact lens wear for too long can cause corneal edema, at the same time, improper care easily lead to eye infections.
