    I think it's dangerous if you don't remove them when you sleep. If I sleep with them on,my eyes will get sick.

    It is dangerous to sleep in contacts. You will find that you may suffer from blurred vision the next day morning because there are discharges on the surface of the lenses. So we should take off our contacts every night before going to bed.

    We shouldn't sleep in contacts. There is less oxygen entering into the surface of our eyes if we sleep in contacts, we may get red and dry eyes. And the contacts may glue to the surface of our eyeballs the next day morning. It is very dangerous so I won't allow my children to sleep in contacts.

    There is a kind of contacts that you can sleep in. they can maintain the water and allow more oxygen to enter the surface of the eyeballs. It is very dangerous to sleep in contacts. You can ask the optician to recommend another kind of contacts which can be slept in if you often forget to remove your contacts in night.

    It can be dangerous to sleep in contacts. If you sleep in contacts accidently, you can apply some artificial tears to flush your eyes. Besides, you need to drink more water. This can help lubricate your eyes and relieve red and dry eye symptoms. If you can't take off your contacts immediately, you must calm down and drink more water and flush your eyes with artificial tears again and again. You can take off the contacts easily after your eyes can produce enough water. Don't try to take off contacts by force because that will cause great damages.
