Why wait til you stop growing? Eyes never change in size.

Oh, and women stop growing earlier than men by a good couple of years.

That's to do with disfiguration of your lense over time, not to do with the rest of your body growing. Eyes don't grow or shrink though.

Well if any part of your eye function is still changing (size, shape or muscles/lens action) then laser correction for a certain prescription won't give you good, lasting results.

I wear glasses and contact lenses. A lot of people don't seem to notice that I wear glasses though - like they somehow blend into my face. Strange.

Has anybody ever:

1. Fallen asleep with contacts in and then, after waking up, found that the contact lens had dried out so much that it was almost impossible to remove from the eye.

AND/OR

2. (Especially when drunk) removed contact lenses, then forgotten that they've removed the lenses and started trying to remove contact lenses again - essentially just prodding away at a bare eyeball.

Never done these things myself of course...

But it's always changing depending on how the muscles in the area are, how wet the eye is etc. There's no set time when the disfigurement stops, indeed the disfigurement increases later in life. Saying not to do it until they stop changing shape is like saying not to get in your boat until the tides stop flowing.

Are you having a philisophical argument about a scientific matter here?

No, I'm using a metaphor. The tide will never stop flowing so saying you're not going fishing until the tide stops is equible to saying you're never going fishing. Likewise your eyes are allways changing, but never growing.
