I stored my soft contact lens overnight in what I thought

Customer Question

I stored my soft contact lens overnight in what I thought was the solution for them but when I woke in morning and put them in it felt like someone had put acid in my eyes. Come to find out it was cleaner for hard contact and should have been used on hard and as a cleanser then rinsed and stored in its proper solution . No my eyes are red and swollen itchy irritated and painful.
