I wear gas perm. contact lenses. I awoke four nights ago with my right eye stinging and tearing up badly. My vision in my right eye has been very blurry sense then with or without the contact. How serious could this be?


This is a serious problem. You must see an ophthalmologist today to make sure you do not have a corneal infection. You must take care of this promptly as your vision can be permanently damaged.

This was not a gradual decrese in vision. It literally happened overnight. Could it be neurologically related?

Unlikely neurologically related. Possibly a corneal abrasion or corneal infection. You need to see an ophthalmologist ASAP.
