    Ok, from what I know, wearing contact lenses would not change the shape of your eyes if you use them properly. On the contrary, some people try to wear eyeglasses for a long time and they tend to have a pair of changed eyes, which is ugly, and contact lenses could better in this case. However, contact lenses would add some health risks to your eyes because they might lead to some infections if not kept properly.
