I wear the night and day contacts that you can leave in for several weeks to a month. Yesterday, I took my contact out to give my eyes a rest and my left eye immediately got bloodshot red. At first it was hard to open, was tearing a lot, and was very sensitive to light. This sensation lasted pretty much the entire day up till I went to bed. Now it is the next morning and my eye is still bloodshot and it is still sore when I blink and sensitive to light. What should I do to relieve this problem? I would go to the eye doctor, but they are closed on the weekend. Are there any over the counter remedies that I can get from the pharmacist to make this problem better.
If every you go back to wearing contacts again, I would not wear the day and night variety. I remove my contacts every night and do not wear them on Sundays. I have been doing this for many years and have never had any problems.
