    dont sleep in contacts, its bad practice and not healthy for the eyes.
    Dont listen to anyone that says its OK, I can show proof that its not.

    let me talk to an elite...

    my eye should heal in about 5 days? i think i will just put it in the
    right eye until it clears up then wait about 4-5 days after it clears

    Do what you want, but I suggest you talk to my optometrist who was
    shocked when I mentioned sleeping in contacts and he said dont even
    think of it! As for your red eye, yes itll clear up if you take care of
    your eyes and not sleep in contacts or overwear them or youll make them
    redder and redder and infect it! Show mercy!

    Found one of the 1000+ articles discouraging extended wear

    Extended Wear

    Some soft lenses can be worn for a number of days in a row without
    removal at night. Keeping lenses in overnight is known as extended wear
    (as opposed to daily wear in which the lenses are removed each night
    before sleep). While extended wear does offer convenience, studies
    have found that extended wear can increase the risk of serious contact
    lens complications. The decision to try extended wear should only be
    made after careful discussion of its risks and benefits with your
    practitioner .In addition, extended wear requires special lenses. Under
    no circumstances should you simply try extended wear with your old
    lenses! The U.S. Food and Drug Administration now advises that
    extended wear not exceed six nights (seven days). A recent development
    is that of Continuous Wear Contact Lenses, which the FDA has approved,
    i.e., extended wear for up to 30 days. This has been made possible by
    the advent of silicon-hydrogel lens materials. These lenses have
    exceptionally high oxygen permeability. However, because some eyes are
    better able to adapt to extended wear than other eyes, an appropriate
    extended wear schedule can only be determined by your practitioner.
    Because of its greater risk, extended wear requires more frequent
    practitioner visits and for this reason is likely to cost more than
    daily wear.

    Another article:

    People who regularly wear contact lenses while sleeping are at least
    eight times more likely to develop corneal damage than those who don't,
    according to a new study.

    The study, from scientists at The Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute,
    the Oregon Health Sciences University's Casey Eye Institute, and
    Michigan State University, concludes that eliminating overnight use of
    disposable and conventional extended-wear lenses would reduce the rate
    of lens-associated ulcerative keratitis by as much as 74 percent.

    Ulcerative keratitis is a destructive inflammation of the cornea, the
    clear cover of the eye, caused by infection with bacteria or other
    germs. The study appears in the February issue of the Archives of

    "The main point is that most of the risk is due to overnight wear, not
    lens type," says Oliver Schein, M.D., M.P.H., of Wilmer's Cornea
    Service and Dana Center for Preventive Ophthalmology, and senior author
    of the paper. "Even 41 lens care hygiene, although recommended, does
    not protect the wearer against the excess risk of overnight wear."

    Is it worth the risks just to save ONE MINUTE it takes to pop in/out
    your contacts? You already are developing problems, this is a warning
    sign of more serious ailments. I am not a doctor, but I have shown you
    proof of the risks. I am not telling you to avoid contacts, just not to
    be so lazy to forget to remove them before sleeping! Its super easy and
