Good evening, thanks for the question


There is a possibility that contact lenses can scratch the surface of the cornea, which can cause corneal abrasion when contact lenses are not fit to the eye or if the eyes are too dry.


It is not recommended to use contact lenses during sleep because it increases the risk of corneal abrasion. Dirt, germs, and dust will be trapped inside the contact lens and can not be washed out by tears when in sleep conditions. Corneal abrasion will also be an entrance for bacteria and viruses, causing infections in the eye. Abrasion or severe injury to the cornea will then cause permanent blindness.


To avoid this risk, do not use contact lenses when sleeping, routinely replace contact lenses, do not use contact lenses for a long time more than 7 hours, and do regular eye examinations with a doctor.


You can also consider the LASIK procedure as an absolute solution when contact lenses are uncomfortable.
That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
