A contact lens itself does not contribute to the formation of wrinkles, but the application process is what causes the damage. Although everyone has their own way of inserting contact lenses, it is common that everyone lifts up or pulls down on the skin surrounding their eyes. The motion of tugging at the sensitive skin surrounding your eyes is what causes fine lines and wrinkles to form. (Tip: When applying your contact lenses avoid lifting your eyebrows. This can cause wrinkles in your forehead).
