I wear contact lenses and my eyes have become red and irritated, what do I do?

There are many reasons your eyes may become red or irritated as a contact lens wearer, including allergies, infection, or inflammation.  Complications are more likely to arise if you accidentally sleep in your contact lenses, forget to replace them on schedule, or due to inadequate contact lens hygiene.  If you are a contact lens wearer and your eyes have started to feel painful or irritated and have become red it is very important to see an eye doctor as soon as possible as medical treatment may be required.  To schedule an appointment please call our front desk at 604-593-5534.
