i've been wearing contacts for about 6 to 7 years now and theyve always been fine. recently, my right contact has been hurting me eye when its in. just the right one. it happened once a few weeks ago, so i took it our right away and noticed that there were alot of veins in the top half of my eye. so i wore my glasses for like 2 or 3 days and it would still hurt every now and then. id get all teary and it was sensitive to light and wind. then it went away and i wore my contacts again for a while without any problems. about a week and half to 2 weeks later, it happened again so i took the right one out and wore my glasses for a few days. it went back to normal and i started wearing my contacts again. this time nothing hurt, but i noticed that the top half of the white part in my right eye still had alot of veins on it. so i took my contacts out and wore my glasses for a few days hoping that the veins would go away. it seems like its going away, but i dont know if theyll come back again if i put my contacts in in a few days. does this sound serious? ive had veins in my eyes before like if i accidently took a nap with my contacts in, but it would usually go away within a day or 2. im not sure if i should go see the doctor or the eye doctor.
