Can I take short naps with my contacts on?
I know I should not use my contact lenses while sleeping (I use soft-contact lenses) but I sometimes feel like sleeping in the afternoon just for 30 minutes or so and I don't want to take them off because then I'll have to disinfect them again is a waste of time and the liquid to clean it is expensive and I don't want to waste it with the "5 minutes cleaning".
Update: kamakani - ORLY? what happened to her?

I do take naps without removing my contact lens. I even wear them during my one-hour lunch break at work. I just have a lubricant eye drops handy so when I wake up, I just put on some eye drops and I'm ready to work again.

Is it safe to take naps with contact lens?
answered May 23, 2017 by Sam
If one is wearing silicone hydrogel contact lenses which has more oxygen transmissibility, then very occasional naps are okay, but shouldn’t be made as a habit. But if it's Hydrogels, then it has to be avoided.
PS : Though there are companies which says silicone hydrogels lenses can be used as an extended wear I.e. Can be worn 6 days and 7 nights continuously, but it should be avoided keeping in mind the dusty climate here.

If you just take a short nap for less than 20 minutes, you can wear your contacts. If not, you'd better take them off because of the impermeability to oxygen. This may because you feel dry in eyes after you wake up. If you often do this, it may cause your eyes to get red which may easily get infection.

Is taking a nap with contacts on bad?
I'm kinda too lazy to take my contacts off now, given the fact that I still take forever to put them on. (I just got contacts last week)
Am I hurting my eyes if I leave the contacts on while I take a nap?

i have had to go to the emergency room twice for sleeping (overnight) with contacts in.
the pain was simply mind boggling.
then they give some type of petroleum like substance that you smear all over your eyeball.
trust me.take the damn things out...if you ever experience what i have described above...you will not be a happy camper.
