Thanks for doing this AMA doc!

If you wear contacts for, say, 20 years, will there be damage done even if you wear them properly? I ask because last year at my yearly exam, the Dr. suggested I start wearing my glasses sooner at night and earlier in the morning, because at the rate I'm going I could have some problems later on.

I didn't ask him to be more specific (like an idiot, I will this year), but what do you think he could be talking about? And I'm not going to claim I've been perfect with my contacts (I got an ulcer once from not taking them out at night, but I NEVER sleep in them anymore), but the fact that he thinks something is developing worries me.

P.S. I've been wearing contacts for about 12 years, not 20.
