Last night I was quickly trying to get ready for a dress rehearsal for a haunted house.
I hadn't worn my contact lenses in a while, but was in a rush. I quickly cleaned my left contact and popped it in (which I can do without a mirror).
I knew right away I should've taken my time beacuse I could see but felt a significant pain in my eye.
I immediately tried to take it out, and noticed that the ridge on one part of the contact had hardened somewhat.
I put a different contact in and was uncomfortable and not seeing great.
When I went home it looked like suddenly the conjunctiva tissue near the bottom of the lens of my eye was overlapping or cracked and I was experiencing pain.
I went to sleep and woke up with a lot of mucus in the middle of the night, and had started rubbing it before I fully woke up.
I've just been trying to let it rest and keep it closed & still, but its near impossible. And I'm worried how long it might take to heal?
Is there anything a doctor can do for me? Will it heal if I wait it out or could a doctor somehow speed the healing process?
