HELP!! bloodshots and discomfort for 1st time contacts user..

hi i just got my first free trial of contact lenses today, it is the aqua daily comfort plus by ciba vision, i only wore it for 3 hours maximum, i still haven't get the habg of taking it out, so after i finally did it, my left eye was really red but the right eye was fine since it only took me one shot to took it out of this eye. then i took a nap, after i woke up, both my eyes were so red and my left eye kinda hurts. and i have a lot of deposite from both eyes. what is my problem? is this normal for a first time contacts user???? Btw, now my left eye start to be a little ithcy and both eyes are still red..

Could be normal. You need to limit your contact lens wear time initially. Also, never sleep in  a contact lens no matter what you are told...its not safe unless under the direct supervision of a trained doctor. With your contact out, you should be able to see well with your updated glasses? correct? If you are losing vision then you need to seek care immediately.b
best wishes
