Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
You have probably developed corneal neovascularization as a result of corneal hypoxia due to contact lens wear. Deep neovascularization of corneal stroma is a serious issue. The primary treatment is to remove the underlying cause. You should avoid contact lens wear. Even if you do, you should go for less tight fitting with higher oxygen permeable lenses. Topical steroid drops are used in this condition. If this fails , a new treatment comprisng topical or sub-conjunctival bevacizumab in combination with superficial keratectomy can be considered. In very severe cases corneal transplantation can be considered. You should see a cornea specialist. Thanks and best wishes.
Steroids help to reduce inflammation which causes neovascularization i.e formation of new blood vessels.
