Although some contacts are approved for long-term/overnight wear, i believe the healthiest options are to never wear overnight, and consider daily disposable lenses (so that you are always putting in a clean, fresh, preserve.-free lens each day). ...Read more

There is strong likelihood that the redness is due to the contacts and keeping it in will only aggravate the situation (although your eye may feel better wearing the contacts). See your eye md for an evaluation. ...Read more
