In brief: No if they're fitted

Properly and you don't have dry eyes.
See your eye doctor for evaluation.

In brief: Responsibility

Contact lenses may be worn very comfortably & safely in many people.
It is the responsibility of both the patient & doctor to assure that the contact lenses are not causing untoward problems on the eye surface. As a result of wearing them, planned scheduled appointments are necessary to recheck the fit of the lens, as well as ocular health. It is important to wear them only as prescribed.
