    Contact lenses are also called the corneal contact lens. Wearing on the eye cornea, they are used to correct the visual acuity. However, if you wear the contact lenses too much time every day, the eyes will not breath the oxygen which will damage the cornea. If this is done continuously, the eyes will become blind. You'd better control the time of wearing contact lenses.
