My left eye is red, irritated,swolen and feels like there is something in my eye, but there isnt. It started when I changed out contact lenses yesterday and unfortunately I have rubbed all the make up off making things worse. Other than time, what can I do to relieve the symptoms?

Hello there
at this point I would suggest using some lubricants in the eye very aggressively, like every 30 minutes to an hour. A great choice for this is Refresh Celluvisc which is preservative free and an be used very often in such cases. I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
