When you wear contact lenses, you've decided to place a piece of material over your cornea, the clear part. That part gets it's oxygen
from the air. But you've decided NOW it has to get it through the little plastic thingy or all the way from the sides of the lens where it pushes and pulls against the eye pulling fresh tears under the lens. Then your cornea can't handle the low oxygen and gets sick. A bacteria sets up shop in the defect and multiplies. IT IS AN INFECTION! AN ULCER
some of these can perforate the eye in HOURS!
TAKE THE LENS OFF! GO TO AN OPHTHALMOLOGIST AND GET TREATMENT TODAY! GO TO THE OFFICE. DON'T CALL THE OFFICE, GO!
TELL THEM YOU THINK YOU HAVE A CORNEAL ULCER
AND AN SECONDARY IRITIS
which is when there is inflammation INSIDE the eye which you manifest with the photophobia
or fear of light....the light hurts the eye when the pupil gets small and pulls on the tissues which is inflamed from the corneal infection
Over the counter stuff won't work. You need a strong antibiotic NOW.
