Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Do you wear contacts lenses?
If you'll hit 'Reply' and let me know, I'll give you an answer.
Yes I do
I would highly suggest that you leave your contacts out until you can get to your healthcare provider. You could have Conjunctivitis. This is an inflammation or infection of the membrane that lines the eyelids and coats the surface of the the conjunctiva. It can be caused by viruses, bacteria, or allergies.
It could also mean that your eyes are not getting enough Oxygen with your contacts.
You probably need to go ahead and treat this as contagious until you know otherwise. Make sure you keep your hands washed frequently and try not to touch your eyes.
Also, discontinue the drops you are using as they might be compounding your problem.
Hope this helps!
Please ask for clarification if needed.
Is this contangious? should I go to work?
It very well could be contagious, so I would not go to work until you can see your healthcare provider to determine what is going on.
