eye burning/swelling
Happy new year!  
Don't know if this is a big deal...I woke up this morning with red/irritated right eye.  I had been prone to allergies when I was younger, so was not concerned until I noticed in the mirror that the right corner of my eyeball was swollen and  seemed like it was being "pinched" or "squeezed" by the eyelids when I squinted.  No problems with vision..  I wear contacts but had not put them in yet.  Eye burns, so I have been keeping it closed.  

Thanks everyone.

Allergy usually affects both eyes and causes itching.

Statistically your problem is more likely due to the contact lens or cleaning solutions.

Leave the contacts out. use warm compress and artifical tears.

If really concerned call your contact fitter tomorrow.

sorry to hear you woke up to that... thing is, so did i! lol. i woke up to my right eye swollen, red and burning/hurting. feels scratchy like there is something in it when i blink. Idk if your eye is like mine, but it also has alot of watery dischargh along with yellowish gunky discharge alot like the "sleepies" you get when you wake up. But anyway, point is, my boyfriend's mom is a nurse and she told me i have Pink Eye.
