"My eyes are red, painful, swollen and/or produce discharge."
If you experience any of these symptoms, stop lens wear immediately and consult your eye care professional.
These could be signs of a serious problem. Contact lenses can't be comfortable if your eyes aren't healthy to begin with, and continued contact lens wear can make problems worse — whether they were caused by lenses in the first place, or are unrelated to lens wear.
Remember this general rule for contact lens wear: If your eyes don't look good, feel good and see well, remove your contacts immediately and call your eye doctor for advice.
