Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today. Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you -- I managed to squeeze a vacation with my Wife into my busy schedule :-)
You did the right thing by switching to your glasses
. Look carefully at the contact that was in your irritated eye and make sure that it doesn't have any little tears, defects or gunk stuck to it. If it does, throw it away. Actually, if it would not be too much trouble, it might be best to get a new pair of contacts.
Use cool compresses to soothe your eye along with artificial tears. You can also use the tobramycin 4x/day for 7 days although, from what you have posted, that may not be necessary.
If things have gotten worse since you have posted this thread, if you vision has deteriorated or if you are having pain, you should get in to see an ophthalmologist
ASAP to be safe -- after all you only have two eyes :)
I hope you are otherwise doing well....
