Can I Sleep with Colored Contacts In?

Every day is a busy one in the modern world. The lunch break is the only time of the day that we can rest, except for the evening. Many people choose to take a nap on the table to ensure that they are productive in the afternoon. We will not do things that we believe are unimportant in order to give ourselves more time to rest. Taking off your contact lenses is one example. For our lunch break, we typically decide to nap on the table. People who wear glasses will remove them because it is quick and easy. And those who wear contact lenses decide to sleep with the contact lenses in. We may think that wearing contact lenses for a short break will not have any negative effects. However, is this actually the case?

Can I sleep with colored contacts in?

The answer is no. Regardless of how long you sleep, you should not wear contact lenses. It only takes a few minutes to put your contact lenses in the case before going to bed. Oxygen cannot reach the eyes when they are closed. When the single channel to the eye is blocked, the eye must rely on lacrimal gland tears to stay hydrated. It can create an ideal environment for the eyes. When you close your eyes, contact lenses prevent tears from flowing out. This can cause irritation and dryness in the eyes. This applies to all colored contact lenses. Whether your colored contact lenses are with a prescription or not, you should adhere to the contact lens wear guidelines.

Furthermore, germs abound in lenses. When you close your eyes, it will be completely absorbed. This is unquestionably harmful to your eyes. When contact lens contaminants enter your eyes, they can cause severe corneal ulcers or acute red eyes (CLARE). I don’t think any of us want to have eye problems, and you won’t have to if you follow the guidelines.

Which contact lenses can I wear while sleeping?

Silicone hydrogel extended contact lenses are available to meet your requirements. One of the materials used to make contact lenses is silicone hydrogel. Because of the increase in oxygen permeability, silicone hydrogel extended contact lenses can be used as a long-term contact lens. You can sleep with them on without having to remove them. It is critical to remember that even these contact lenses must be removed on a regular basis. And, if your eyes are uncomfortable or irritated, you should always take them out and clean them. As a contact lens user, I would recommend SIXMOON’s products to anyone looking to purchase contact lenses. My requirements are completely met here.

What should I do if I sleep with contact lenses in?

One of the situations we may often encounter is that we take a nap in the office but forget to take off our contact lenses. Our eyes may already look different and feel uncomfortable by the time we notice. What effect will this have on our eyes? What should we do next?

Please remain calm and contact your eye doctor right away. If your eyes become sore, red, or you experience blurry vision, seek medical care right away. If your symptoms are minor, skip to the next step and start immediately with treatment.

1. Give yourself a few minutes before attempting to remove the lenses.

2. To avoid corneal abrasion, use contact lens rewetting drops to hydrate the lenses and eyes.

3. Check to see if your eyes feel and look normal after removing your contact lenses for at least a few hours.

4. Take your contact lenses out for a day to allow your eyes to absorb oxygen and remain moist.

Wrap up

Although contact lenses make our lives easier, it is still important to follow the contact lens usage guidelines. Please use contact lenses correctly for the sake of our eyes!
