What should I do if I think I have an eye infection?

Dealing With Eye Infections While Wearing Contact Lenses

Pain that does not subside within 1-2 hours after contact lenses are removed can be a sign of a potential infection. It is important to contact an eye care provider immediately if an infection is suspected, because eye infections require prompt treatment. Other symptoms such as redness, pain and blurred vision which do not improve after removing contact lenses may indicate an infection. The infection may be caused by a variety of factors so it is important to bring contact lenses, cases and solutions to the eye doctor's office so he can help to determine the source of the infection.
