Red, Inflammed eye

i am a 17 year old student. i recently got contact lenses a few months ago and wear them almost every day. recently my right eye has become very red and inflamed around the iris. about a month ago i did have a problem with my eyes and was diagnosed with dry eyes but i was never sure if it was the correct diagnosis. just wondering whether it has something to do with my contacts because when i put them in the vision in my eye was blurred. should i continue wearing them?

Stop wearing and see an ophthalmologist. You may be putting your eyes a serious risk if you continue to wear the contacts with these symptoms.
