Welcome to HCM. Hope you are feeling a little better with your cool compresses and hope you have removed your contact lens(CL) now.
Until you get an appointment with your eye doctor
, get a lubricant( preferably a preservative free one) and apply it 4-6 times a day for soothing your eye. A slit lamp microscope eye examination
is needed if you have continuous watering,sensitivity to light and blurred vision
, to make sure your Cornea
is alright without any epithelial damage. Until then I would suggest not to wear your CL until you are free from redness/ any above said symptoms
Donot apply any other over the counter eyedrops without a consultation as it might trigger up any pathology if so.
So, let us hope you are alright soon. Take care.
