Hi, I'm not Dr. Stan, but since he's unavailable at the moment, I'd be happy to address your problem.


First off, please allow me to ask a few questions?


Has the vision in that eye changed?


Are you sensitive to light?


Is the eye primarily red around the colored part of the eye?


Does your eye hurt, burn, or itch?

Yes my right eye is red around the colored part of the eye
Expert:  Dr. Dan B. replied 6 years ago.

This sounds like it is possibly a inflammation related to bacteria around your tears that contact lens wear often is associated with.


You need to see your eye doctor and would likely need an antibiotic or antibiotic/steroid combination drop to help you over this problem.


You should stay out of the contact lenses until it is resolved, and once you start wearing them again (according to your doctor's instructions), you should get a new pair of lenses to use.


Does that address your concerns?
