Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
what is your age? do you eyes ever tear or run ? how long can you wear the lenses before they irritate?
last night I could not sleep well because my eye was hurting and this morning i can't open my eye because it is extremely sensitive to light. it is very red and swollen. help.
I am sorry you had a rough night. I am sure you are making fewer tears than you should be due to wearing contacts for such a long time frame (15 years). You need to have the tear production tested and if need be, you can be given something called Restasis as a prescription and this will help with your tear production and allow you to use contacts more comfortably. You will need to reduce the time frame for their use as well, say 8-10 hours a day at most. Now the eye that is light sensitive probably developed a small corneal ulcer (infection) or an abrasion (scratch) and this needs to be evaluated today and antibiotics need to be considered, dont hesitate and please do have it checked today, Regards XXXXX
