Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
what is your age and how long have you been wearing contacts? What is the duration of time during the day that you use the contacts? Do your eyes tear at all ?
It is pretty apparent that you are wearing your contacts too long and the redness simply is an indication of irritation. First, you need to get a new set of contact lenses. Second you need to temporarily reduce your length of use to 6-8 hours a day if possible. Next, you need to purchase some preservative free artificial tear such as Refresh Celluvisc and use it before placing your contacts and after you remove them. This helps lubricate your eyes and soothe them. If these contacts have recently been changed in prescription or brand, I would consider the possibility of a poor fit on your cornea as well. I hope this helps, Dr. Stevens
it takes very little for the eyes to get into a vicious cycle of irritation, redness, tearing, mucous buildup and pain. It could have simply began on a day when you used the contacts too long and the eyes simply have not had a chance to repair themselves. The plan I outlined for you works for most of my contact lens wearing patients. I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
