Is it OK to wear my contact lenses while I am sleeping?
Daily wear contact lenses - including both soft and rigid gas permeable lenses - must be
removed before bedtime or even a nap. Certain extended wear contact lenses are designed to be
left in while you sleep; however, be sure to discuss your contact wearing schedule with your
eye care provider, since your needs may be different.
Always be sure to carry your contact lens container and soaking solution in case you need to store your lenses before getting some shut-eye.
