I'm glad your ophthalmologist
is taking care of the glaucoma issue.
16 and 17 are very good eye pressures in the majority of cases.
The yellow dye will not damage your contact lens at all even if it has changed the actual color of the contact lens....noting to worry about there.
You can safely put in the contact again. Ask your optometrist to show you the "pinch technique" for removing the thin contact. They also make little suction cups that you can use to get it out.
I like to have patients store their drops in the fridge so that they can easily tell if the cold drop hit their eye. It is not necessary, however, to keep the drops in the fridge for any other reason....
Sounds like you are fit for monovision
...one lens would be thin and the other one thick. If you don't like this you can have both eyes fit for distance vision and use cheap reading glasses over your contacts for near.
The white residue is just extra medicine in the drop. Do not worry about this at all. It is normal.
Whew! That was a lot of questions. I hope I got them all. :)
