Sore eye, redness. Applied eye ointment. Suggestions?

Hello, this morning I woke up with a very sore left eye. I do wear contacts and admit I have left them in over night before but have never had problems before. I left them in last night and woke up and could barely open my left he it was so painful. I quickly took the contact out and I have worn glasses today. Throughout the day it had gotten severely worse and it is very very red and sore. I made an appointment to see a doctor and he used an eye stain and to check if anything was in my but he couldn t see anything. He gave me eye ointment to take but it hasn t gotten any better. What else could you suggest?
