Hi..
Welcome to HCM..
CL induced keratitis will take a long a course for healing...
You have to use antibiotic eye drops also if it is a keratitis..
Renolen won't help much but systane ultra does..
Keep consulting the doctor for follow up and to change treatment when required..
Remember you should never sleep with CL on..
You can use a lubricating eye ointment also like lacrigel at bedtime for relief...
Hope this information helps you..Take care..
