yes because they are artificial things and specially made of plastics which causes rashes and itching which might ultimately lead to blindness.

i don't think so. But you must be carefull when using lenses. It's very sensitive, means you must be clean either before putting it on or when you want to keep it off. Solution, i suggest you not to use RENU because a few month before there was a news on TV saying that this brand of solution can cause the sight problem even worst and can cause blind to the user. Just remember one thing, whenever you want to go for BBQ party DO NOT wear your lense because the splash from the coal can cause your lense melt and stick on you eyes which later will cause to the blind problem. It is because the lense made from plastic which will get melted with fire.

I think if used in the proper way (removed when sleeping or when extended wear contacts, cleaned frequently), then I see no reason why it would damage ones eyes.
