Question

 

 

Hi,

I have been experiencing some eye redness that seemed to start a couple days after I slept in my contacts and continued wearing them the next day. I changed lenses but the problem proceeded.

I wore my glasses for a day which seemed to help. I still get some irritation, dryness, and redness after wearing contacts during the day.

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

You have to stop wearing contact lenses until your eyes are completely healed. Try to use lubricant eye drops frequently, every 2-3 hours daily for at least a week. In case you notice any blurred vision or your condition get worse, you should be examined by an eye doctor as soon as possible.
