What should I do if I fall asleep while wearing contact lenses?

Removing Contact Lenses After Sleeping

Occasionally falling asleep while wearing contact lenses may not be harmful. However, care should be taken before removing the contact lenses because the lenses may become overly dry while the wearer is sleeping. In this case the use of rewetting drops may be necessary prior to attempting to remove the contact lenses. Without the use of rewetting drops the contact lens may be difficult to remove and may tear during removal.
