Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your wife's symptoms. Since it has been a few hours since she put in the contacts and you have already washed out the eyes and she STILL has burning and light sensitivity then it is time to take her to the ER or to your opthalmologists office. She NEEDS a clinical examination to determine if she may have damaged her cornea or any other structure of the eye. In some cases she may need steroid eye drops to bring down any inflammation which may be present in the region. But persistence of these symptoms beyond a few hours is a clear indication that this needs to be evaluated as soon as possible.
In the meantime for the pain she can use OTC anti inflammmatory agents like ibuprofen orally at a dose of 200 mg thrice a daily but DO have her evaluated as soon as possible.
