In brief: Yes and no

Contact lenses certainly help you see better without having to wear glasses.
But you must take care to clean your lenses regularly. And remember, the eye was not meant to have anything touching it. Over time, your eyes may become dry, irritated and develop allergies to the contacts. There is also a risk for severe eye infection if proper hygiene is not practiced.

In brief: Well...

Good is a relative thing.
As long as you are not allergic to the material contacts are made of, and you take appropriate measures to clean and care for your lenses, contacts can be worn daily without concern. They are very, very safe.
