Can you sleep in Air Optix contacts?
You can sleep in Air Optix contacts, provided you have received approval from your optician. They will need to examine your eyes and evaluate whether extended wear lenses are suitable for you. If your optician confirms that your eyes are suited to sleeping in your contact lenses, then it's important to follow the appropriate wearing schedule they have advised. Your optician may recommend wearing your Air Optix contacts for up to 6 continuous nights.
