What happens if you take a nap in contacts?
Tomorrow I'm going on a trip about 2 1/2 hours away. Normally I take naps on car trips but now I have contacts. If I did fall asleep for like a 1/2 hour what would happen. I have soft lenses if that makes a difference.

A nap in soft contacts wont' matter. Your eyes might be sticky when you wake up , in which case use re-wetting drops. You are told nto to sleep in contacts because long term it deprives your eye of oxygen which is dangerous. by the time you get symptoms your vision may be damaged. Provided you aren't overwearing your lenses the odd nap won't matter.

Even with sleeping in them for a short time opens you up to the chance of getting a corneal ulcer. A doctor I work for told me not to even sleep in mine for an hour. I didn't listen of course, and got an ulcer after an extremely short period of time. If it develops in the center of your eye you may have to go through surgery and it can also lead to blindness. Once you get one, you're that much more likely to get another one. Just be safe and don't sleep in them, trust me it's not worth it.
