Hi doctor,

I am using contact lenses daily. But yesterday, I slept with it in my eyes. When I woke up, my eyes were red and itching. It is painful, and water is coming out continuously from my eyes. Please help.

  • Immediately remove contact lenses and start using antibiotic eye drops and artificial tear substitutes frequently.
  • You can send pictures of your eyes and old records for better assessment and management.
