Question

 

 

Hi,

I accidentally slept with my soft lens and when I woke up I found my left eye red. I stopped wearing soft lens right after and have been using augentonic eye drop twice daily.

There's no discharge. My red eye actually feels normal except for the redness. It has been three days and the redness still remains.

What should I do?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

You shouldn't sleep with contact lenses as this might increase the risk of contact lens related keratitis or corneal infection. You should visit your eye doctor as soon as possible if you have eye pain or blurred vision.

You should use antibiotics eye drops with lubrication .Augentonic eye drop is neither an antibiotic nor it is a lubrication and i advice strongly not to use it. If you feel no improvement or your condition is getting worse, you should go to your eye doctor.

You shouldn't wear contact lens until your eye is completely healed and you have to use new pair of contact lens.
