(NBC News) – (4/26/19) Brother and sister Justin and Aileen Liang are world champion jump rope athletes, and they say they couldn’t compete with glasses on.
They also don’t like to jump with contacts in, and even though they have poor eyesight, they jump with no vision correction at all, thanks to special sleeping contacts.
“They let me move around especially when I’m doing sports. I don’t have to worry about getting dust in my eye or if I’m swimming I can just swim freely,” Justin Liang says.
Justin has been sleeping in these new contacts overnight for about four years. Aileen Liang has used them for just a few months. Neither of them has to wear anything during the day.
While you are asleep, the lenses gently reshape the cornea so you can see clearly the following day after you remove the lenses when you wake up.
You put them back in at the end of the day, before bed.
