Our Optometrists Answer Your Eyecare Questions

I usually take my contacts out before going to sleep, but I sometimes fall asleep with them on. Is that unhealthy for my eyes? 

Dr. Jennifer Martino Responds:

Sleeping with your contacts in is extremely unhealthy for your eyes, because the cornea is deprived of oxygen. Under these circumstances the contact lense dries out, and could cause microscopic tears to the cornea. So if there happens to be a microorganism in your eye, the rip in the cornea is an invitation to an infection.
