A Taiwanese student,Lian Kao recently became blind due to eyeball-eating amoebas.
The hungry single-celled organisms formed after she knowingly left her contacts in for six months straight without changing or cleaning the lenses.
The lack of attention to eye hygiene created a breeding ground for an acanthamoeba infection to form in her contacts and her corneas. After the amoebas formed, they began burrowing into the student’s eyeballs, causing her to lose her vision.
She allegedly left the one pair of contacts in even while swimming and sleeping.
Wu Juan-liang, the director of ophthalmology at Taipei’s Wan Fang Hospital, explained.
A shortage of oxygen can destroy the surface of the epithelial tissue, creating tiny wounds into which the bacteria can easily infect, spreading to the rest of the eye and providing a perfect breeding ground.
The girl should have thrown the contact lenses away after a month but instead she overused them and has now permanently damaged her corneas,” he said.

Contact lenses are normally not for beauty/fashion purposes but  for vision correction, those patients whose vision deficiency cannot be corrected properly  with glasses  or are advised to use contact lens because of their daily activities.. I wonder  how she used it for that long without discomfort because she was supposed to dispose it daily and can only be on for some hours...she is very careless.
