The dangers of sleeping in your contacts
Are you sleeping in your contacts?
If so your risk of an eye infection is considerably higher…
The pain, discomfort, and extra cost of an eye infection is not worth the temporary hassle of removing your contact lenses before bedtime. Not to mention, in extreme cases, wearing your contact lenses improperly can cause blindness!
Many of my patients have a lifestyle that makes it difficult to remove their contact lenses on a nightly basis, such as people who work night shift, students who study through the night, and nursing mothers who need to be up at all hours of the night. These patients love the FDA approved overnight contacts compared to the regular contact lenses. Make an appointment today to see if your vision can be corrected with these contacts.
