Question

 

 

Hi,

I accidentally fell asleep with recreational colored contacts in. I woke up to hazy vision and rainbow rings around lights( Corneal Edema).

It still was happening even when I took the contacts out. After about two hours, my vision returned to normal completely. I was just wondering if I should still go have my eye checked out?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

You should visit your eye doctor If you still have blurry vision, red eye or eye pain but if you have none of these symptoms then there is no need.

Be safe and don't sleep with your contact lens in.
