Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
Apart from swelling, does the right eye have redness ?
If there is a broken vessel, the eye appears bright red, has no pain.
Must have been the irritation from having left the contacts in the eye for so long.
Since the redness is clearing and there is no continuous pain in the eye as such, you can continue with the lubricating eye drops, 4-6 times a day.
One of the risks of wearing contacts continuously is that of a corneal abrasion or even a corneal ulcer. However this would be very painful with severe redness and pain along with light sensitivity.
Hope you fell better with the lubricating eye drops.
In case symptoms persist beyond a week of lubricating eye drops, then it is better to get the eye examined by an ophthalmologist for a closer look of the cornea.
You can even use lubricating eye ointment at bedtime. It is better to refrain from using contact lenses till symptoms disappear completely.
Is there anything else that I can answer for you?
