    Although contact lenses which can replace the spectacles' function have gained huge popularity nowadays, it has to be admitted that wearing contact lenses for several years even longer would bring you some bad effects. To begin with, the most common problems associated with contact lenses are too little oxygen between your cornea and the rest of the world which may give rise to a condition known as hypoxia. What's worse, due to the corneal hypoxia which is able to change the rate of metabolism in the epithelium, glycogen may undergo a decrease tendency, making the cornea more sensitive and prone to adhesion and refractive error changes. In addition, wearing contact lenses for a long may cause bacterial infections and corneal ulcers because for the adhesive cornea which can increase the chances of any buildup on the cornea itself. Anyway, just give your eyes more opportunities to get fresh air and suck it up and wear common glasses, which is definitely beneficial to your eyes.

    Contact lenses are made for daily use. But longtime wearing of contact lenses or cosmetic ones can pose a hassle and do some damage to contact lenses wearers. Serious implications include: your eyes’ immunity greatly decrease and are susceptible to various bacterial. Longtime wearing can also bring about eye fatigue or dry eye syndrome, badly affecting your vision image and exacerbating your myopia. Some allergies are also prone to occurring. If you want to spare all these evil consequences from wearing contact lenses for too long, the best idea is to cut your reliance on contact lenses and beginning to use prescription glasses.

    Hi there, I am Olivia Johnson and I know this might not be the best way to reach you but I am not trying to sell you anything. I am spending money out of my own pockets currently to reach as many people as possible to try to help as many people as possible. There is currently a wealth transfer underway as when the Federal Reserve and Central banks around the world prints more currencies into circulation, purchasing power is transferred from the bottom to the top. That is unless you know what to do. To take advantage of this (or risk losing the purchasing power on your savings if you do nothing), consider buying physical gold, silver, crypto-currencies and mining stocks.Earlier the Australian listed company I shared - Silver Mines Limited last traded at AUD$0.22 (it was around AUD$0.11 when I first share it) - it almost double the gains. Gold has made an all time high and silver is too going up in prices. The cryptocurrency stock "HiveblockChain" listed in Canada last trade at CAD$0.48 ( it was CAD$0.31 when I first sent this out to everyone). This is a whopping 54.8% gain within a few weeks! As central banks continue to print more currencies, consumer prices will be going up (bad for our families!) and please take measures to protect your families and yourself! I am launching a blog soon with the hope of helping as many people as possible! In the meantime, I am still buy more HIVE Block Chain stock in Canadian stock exchange TSX (Toronto Stock Exchange). Read more about HIVE Block Chain here: We are not affiliated to HIVE BLOCKCHAIN in any way. Disclaimer: This is not financial advice and we own some Hive Blockchain. We are living in extreme times when the Fed and all central banks around the world is printing lots of currencies. It is a mathematical certainity that everything will go up in price due to the excessive currency printing. We believe cryptocurrencies have more room to go up in prices when the water lifts all boats. Do your own research on this and prepare for the worst
