Welcome to HCM.
You are suffering from Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis
common in CL users. One good thing you have done is stop wearing the CL .
is a wonderful drug for this condition. I would suggest you to Continue Relestat along with topical anti allergics and
-add a good lubricant eye drops (preferably a gel)to relieve your sandy sensation
-a short term topical steroid
monitered by your eye doctor
and most importantly,
-get an Oculoplastic surgeon's opinion too as long standing GPC will cause pseudo ptosis
, which might need a surgical intervention,depending on your degree of drooping of the upper lids and your conjunctival status.
So, don't worry, this condition is very common and treatable, get an oculoplastic opinion for further assessment and management.
Hope this helps.
