Therefore you need to replace the case every 1.5 to 3 months(soft contact lens)/6 months to 1 year(hard contact lens).
Example5. Sleeping with contact lenses in your eyes
There are less tear production during sleep and that make the eyes dry, which increases the risk of your eyes getting dameged by the contact lenses.
Please see ophthalmologists if the eyes condition is bad after you wake up.
