Is contact lenses better than eyeglasses ? 

There are some limitations between both glasses and contact lenses, To put it bluntly, glasses are better than contact lenses because there is a risk in contact lenses and no risk in spectacles.
But spectacles also have some limitations. 

If a patient has a high number of cylindrical power, you cannot use the spectacles in that patient. Also call keratoconus, in that case we need to use contact lens.

We cannot use contact lenses as comfortable as we can wear glasses because we have to be very hygienic in contact lenses.

I think glasses are good because of the low limitations on the glasses and the high limitations on the contact lenses.

Can I Sleep with contact lenses ? 

No, you can't sleep with contact lenses, You can't even take nap for ten to fifteen minutes. Let me tell you why.
The contact lens is fixed to your eye on cornea, it does not have oxygen supply from inside, it is taking oxygen from the environment and because it is a contact lens, it already has low supply of oxygen. 

 During sleep the eyelids are completely closed, so the cornea do not get oxygen, so the dryness comes to the eye, we call it hypoxia, so the eye becomes very red, and sometimes even the contact lens can catch your eye.

There may complications of corneal neo-vascularisation. 

When we are not sleep our eyelid blink continuously due to this tears are Spread in eye thoroughly this activity wet the whole eyeball. 

Hope you will get clear.
