Yesterday my left contact fell out while I was at work and all I had with me was some otc allergy relief drops. I realize now this was a horribly wrong thing to do but I used the allergy drops to reinsert my contact. After I got home I noticed my eye was dilated. I immediately took both contacts out and threw them away and wore glasses the rest of the day. By the time I went to bed that night the eye dilation had gone down a bit but the left was still slightly larger than the right pupil. I decided to go to bed and wait. Now it's 4 A.M. and I'm a little freaked out because the pupil is still a little dilated. I called poison control and they said it would go back to normal but I'm not so sure. What should I do? The allergy relief drops had Naphazoline Hydrochloride and Pheniramine maleate in them.
