Is it okay to sleep with my disposable contact lenses in?

Sleeping while wearing your Contact Lenses

Falling asleep while wearing disposable contact lenses is a common problem, but that doesn't mean that it is not a serious one. Sleeping with your contact lenses in your eyes can cause damage and discomfort. It is recommended that you remove your contact lenses every night before you go to sleep and stoe them in saline in a doctor approved case. This simple procedure should reduce itching, burning, and vision problems.

If you feel that taking out your contact lenses every night is a hassle, Focus has recently made available Focus Night & Day Contacts. These lenses are made to wear for 30 days consecutively, even while sleeping! They allow 6 time more oxygen to reach your eyes than standard disposable contact lenses.
