My eyes always feel sore if I sleep with them on.

With my patients, I always use an analogy to drive home an important point.  In this instance, I would remind my patient that we don't sleep in our shoes even though we "could"...... so I recommend the simple task of removing both our shoes AND our contacts when we sleep. :)

No it is not good that you should not remove you lenses, when you going to sleep. It is harmful to you eyes. Because while on sleeping we that our eye are closed and there is lit bit chemical is the lenses.

Sleeping in contact lenses - not good

Q: I wear the disposible contact lens for the most part... actually, most of the time - literally. Normally I sleep with them on for a couple of weeks in a row. I heard from some doctors that this was fine and some said this is detrimental to my eyes. How does sleeping with contacts affect my eyes?
A: Years ago it was felt that soft contacts could be worn while sleeping. Studies have shown that when this is done there is an increase likelihood of eye infections with potentially very serious effects on vision. Most eye professionals now discourage sleeping in contact lenses for this reason.
