How bad is it to use daily contact lenses for more than a day? I want to save up money!

In brief: Better not to

Daily contacts are not made to be worn for more than one day.
It is best to use them only daily to decrease the risk of infection and irritation to the eye.

In brief: Avoid it

Contact lenses should only be used strictly according to your doctor's directions.
Over-wearing contacts can lead to severe eye infections and permanent vision loss. It would be more economical to wear a pair of glasses than to risk your eyesight. You may also consider extended-wear contacts, which you could hold on to for longer periods of time.
