A 21-year-old male asked:

Blocked gland: Most common would be a chalazion, which is an eyelid gland that gets blocked and then infected. Use moist heat to try and bring it to a head. If not getting better, go see your eye doctor to get it treated.

Infection: I do not recommend sleeping in contacts on a regular basis. I like to see patients think of sleeping in contacts as an option, but on most nights take them out. The risk of a painful, expensive and potentially vision threatening infection goes up significantly when you sleep in your contacts. And just because you have been doing it for years does not decrease your risk.

Normally not.: As long as you are growing, your eyes grow and get more nearsighted. Also, most people's eyes get worse during college (if they study or read a lot). But in most cases as an adult, nearsightedness does not get much worse.
