Several health practitioners have emphasized the importance of practicing the proper care of contact lenses. They have informed the public about the dangers of wearing the piece while taking a bath or swimming, and most importantly, of sleeping with the contacts still in them.
Some people have a habit of going to bed without removing their contact lenses, so they wake up the next day feeling unwell.

39-year-old Chad Groeschen from Cincinnati paid that price because he thought that it was ok to wear his extended wear contacts overnight—apparently, he was wrong.
Groeschen experienced those debilitating symptoms. He suffered from a bacterial infection that spread under his left contact lens. The doctors were able to cure the infection, but the scar tissues left behind by the bacteria had blinded his left eye.

This is What Happens When You Leave a Budding Artist Alone with Her Little Brother
Apparently, she was giving him a peanut butter scrub.
All parents know that children go through a stage when they’re wild and extremely curious; therefore, they’re noisy and playful. And no matter how chaotic things are around your home because of these children, there’s nothing much you can do about them. Besides, it's natural for children to experiment and explore their world.
