the past two nights in a row i was lazy and did not take out my contacts. Then i woke up in the middle of the night and my left eye was burning and i think an eyelash had fallen into it. i took out my contact and my eye started burning even more. i took the right eye contact out too and it burned some. i tried sleeping it off... but now both eyes are red (left is more red than right) and they don't want to open all the way. I also cant look at anything bright for too long. i tried flushing them with water but it only relieves them for a minute. i dot know what to do/
I actually had this problem, last sunday i woke up from sleeping at a friends house with my contacts. They started hurting so I moved the right one out of my eye and it immediatly started hurting more. I tried to sleep it off but it hurt too much. It is now Thursday and I have been putting eye drops in my right eye as well as wearing glasses. There is not much pain in my eye, but it seems to be droopy. I was wondering if this will go away.
