I just noticed a blood blister on the white part of my eye.

I just noticed a blood blister on the white part of my eye. I am wondering if I can wear my hard contacts tomorrow without damaging my eye further.

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Customer: Yes
Doctor DanB : Wearing your hard contact lenses would very likely not cause any further damage to the eye, though you may see the area of blood get larger by expanding or even increasing in size or volume due to the irritation of the lens. In lieu of that it is probably a good idea to hold off on wearing the lens for a few days until it starts to improve. Does that make sense?
Customer: Yes. Thank you. I just can't see as well with my glasses. You have answered my question. Thank you
