Most people don't do these things above! Be careful, don't 'forget about it' and sleep in them regardless! You'll regret it!
Your eyes are important-When sleeping in them you loose epithelial cells which can mean a number of things: The worst is our eye will cloud up until you can't see a speck!
Scary, huh? there are other things that can happen, but after doing research I can tell you that that's the least talked about. Be careful-Don't risk your vision.
