Pain in eye, discharge, light sensitive. Slept with contact lens on

Hi! Early morning on Thursday at like 5am I awoke to a little pain in my eye. I got up and took my contacts out...I wasn't supposed to wear them overnight but I do. Starting immediately after, I have a stabbing pain and liquid has been coming out. It seems light sensitive. Sometimes it hurts less, but it keeps coming back.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
it seems that minor corneal abrasions might have occured-you need to be examined by contact lens specialist....till then you can put lubricatibg drops like refresh tears 6 times a safe to be used over lenses..other reason can be dryness because of overnight wear- same drops can be continued. I strictly advice you not to wear lenses during sleep- abrasions, infection, defects leading to scarring can occur
