Why have my contact lenses started hurting lately?

Temporary Discomfort While Wearing Contact Lenses

Contact lenses may suddenly begin to feel uncomfortable for a variety of reasons. Discomfort, which subsides when the contact lenses are removed from the eye, may indicate protein buildup, debris on the lens or a tear in the lens. Try replacing the contact lenses first, and if does not alleviate the problem, an eye exam may be warranted to determine the source of the discomfort. A change in prescription including the power or shape may make contact lenses feel uncomfortable.
