Bloodshot eye for about 6 weeks, slightly pink. What do I do?

I have had a bloodshot eye for about 6 weeks now. It was slightly pink for 5 weeks then very red for the last 5 days. I wear daily contact lenses but have wore my glasses for the last 5 days now. It is bloodshot on right eye on the left hand side on white part of the eye. If I close my eye and touch lid here it feels bruised.

Thank you for getting in touch with us. From what I make out, you have been having bloodshot eyes from the last few weeks. You need to get in touch with an Ophthalmologist as soon as possible. Usage of contact lens can lead to infection in the eyes and cause symptoms similar to yours. If the diagnosis is confirmed, your Doctor will prescribe you topical antibiotics and that will resolve the problem. You should splash your eyes with fresh water every 30 minutes and avoid using contact lenses till your Doctor examines you. Hope this helps
