What if my eyes are red, sore or Swollen?

Updated at:

While rare, contact lens use can cause eye problems. If one or both eyes are red, sore or swollen, then:

  • Remove your contact lenses immediately
  • If removing the lenses doesn’t resolve the problem, seek advice from your optician
  • Avoid wearing contact lenses until the problem's cleared up. Use glasses instead
  • Avoid wearing eye make-up
