Eye is red and very sore

I noticed the upper part of my eye ball getting red about Thursday so I stopped wearing my contacts.  Since then I've noticed it being a little sore when I lightly press on the top lid.  Today (Sunday) it seems to be even more sore and very sensitive to light.  Its making my head above it and my cheek below it ache. This evening it has been a constant ache, though it does seem to help when I close my eye.  I do plan to call the dr. in the a.m. but was wondering if anyone might know what the problem may be?

Dear roac8362,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD. It is possible you have an infection or inflammation causing this and definitely require care.
