Irritated eye

4709193?1248840808
I have been wearing contacts for a few years now, and the other day I noticed my eye was kind of red (saturday). I figured it would go away after I took my contacts out and put in a few eye drops.  But it is now tuesday (3 days later) and it is still kind of red, and with a closer look I noticed that there is a very small whitish dot on the edge of my iris.  My eye feels pretty normal, Should I be worried?  Do you think it will heal/go away on its own if I wear my glasses instead?

Stop wearing your contacts and see the Eye MD or optometrist that fit you. Generally these are irritation from contacts
