Q: Is it really a big deal to use my 30-day contact lenses longer than a month? 

Yes (sorry!). Contacts absorb proteins and allergens from your eyes and the air. After 30 days, lenses begin to “clog,” keeping your eyes from getting enough oxygen and putting you at risk for corneal ulcers. Set online calendar alerts to remind you to swap them out each month.
