Contact lenses

Um. Is it bad to leave my contact lenses in the fluid in their case for, uh, a month or two on end?

When I first got them, the employee!guy taught me that "Don't leave them in the fluid for more than three days. Change the fluid if that's the case. You don't want little polyglots developing and swimming around in there. YOU COULD GET AN EYE INFECTION."

And now it's kinda been two months since I changed the fluid. And his 'polyglots' comment has frightened the daylights out of me. I finally took the contacts out and drenched them in fluid repeatedly to rinse them off and hopefully clean them? And I've put them in now. Er.

Now, someone tell me if I should tear them out of my eyes immediately because I'm gonna develop an eye infection? D:
