    I am wearing RGP contact lenses.

    I clean them, rinse them and disinfect them every night. But should I
    also clean, rinse and disinfect them during the day before I take my
    daily nap? Or should I just remove them and cover them with the
    conditioning solution without cleaning them with the cleaner?

    If I do the first would the lenses be disinfected knowing that my
    daily nap lasts for 1-2 hours and the time needed for the disinfection
    solution to work is atleast 4 hours.

    But if I do the other then the lenses will be very dirty to wear them
    in the evening.

    What should I do?

    My work schedule is forcing me to sleep during the day for 2 hours so
    I'm not sure what I should do. I know I have to take the lenses out
    while sleeping.

    Otherwise if I don't sleep during the day and wear the lenses all day
    long I have no problems.
    I do have problems with lenses being dirty if I store them for the 2
    hours and not clean them with the cleaner. I suppose that that the
    debris on the lens is getting hardened during those 2 hours.
