Using contacts and applying eyeliner. Burning when trying to flush eyes in the morning.

I wear contacts. I dont wear them at night, but in the Using morning when I wake up my eyes feels like something is in them. I flush them and it hurts really bad. They burn and I cant open them when I am trying to flush them. It feels like something is in them and they burn. I have to wait to put my contacts in and eventually it stops. I sometimes see things float by my eye. I do wear eye liner. This happens every day.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Contact lens wearers tend to have Corneal erosions because of insufficient oxygen reaching the cornea & dry eye. This is exaggerated with prolonged wear(How long do you wear your contact lens?....It shouldn't be worn more than 10hrs).
1.Discontinue your contacts for few days.
2.Start tear substitutes(Optive/ Refresh liquigel eye drop) 4-6 times a day.
3. Do see an ophthalmologist...I hope there is no infection and you don't need antibiotic eye drops or steroid drops...& it's only the punctate erosions.
