In brief: Infection and scars

Over-wearing contact lenses can put you at high risk for corneal abrasions and infections.
Corneal infections can be potentially blinding. Try to avoind sleeping in or wearing contacts past their expiration date at all costs!

I guess they may damage the cornea.
Ask your ophtalmologist or optometrists.
