You can wear disposables for up to fourteen hours per day for up to two weeks then you need to dispose of them .

definitely you're wearing your contacts for too long. The maximum you should wear for contact is 12hours no matter what the instructions / marketing gimmicks the brand says.
Exceeding that, you're subjecting your eyes to oxygen deficiency - your eyes won't be able to ' breathe'. You will get dry eyes sooner or later. If the condition of dry eyes drag on, your eyes will soon bleed too. That was what happened to me.

Just read the related article in my blog http://contactlense4eyes.blogspot.com/, which may be useful I think.

Yes, cos the eye will be lack of oxygen flow. use silicone lenses. thery are the best for long hrs wearing...

i don't think it's bad as long as you're cleaning them at night... bacteria could be a problem. i hated taking my contacts out at night so i started with extended wear which are changed less often. now i wear "night and day" lenses you can keep in for about a month -- clean every few weeks.... i'm happy with these

Follow the manufacturer's instructions, there are contacts that can be worn for many hours. The problem may be that the cornea, the surface they attach to, may become sensitive and red eyes, aches and lots of tear may be the result. Infection is the next step.

YES! I worked in an optometric office for years and i can't count the amount of times people came in with problems for wearing their contacts for too long. Once in a while is forgivable, but it doesn't let your eye "breath" properly and can also cause infection. If you hate taking the in and out, there is a brand called "night-and-day" which allow in more oxygen into the eye and can be worn for longer periods of time.
