Especially when you sleep, your eyes won’t get enough oxygen and this can cause corneal neovascularization.
At daytime, there is almost no risk of that happening because your eyes will be open and receiving oxygen normally. Before changing or getting new lenses, always consult with your ophthalmologist.

Contact lenses of a monthly replacement can also be cheaper than other options because you are buying fewer lenses. You replace them monthly, not daily, so you only need 24 contact lenses a year.
