Ulcer: You will need at least one potent antibiotic eyedrop to treat this. Stop wearing your contacts until this heals. See your eye doctor daily until better.

Pain, redness,: Corneal ulcer is a growth of bacteria on the surface of the cornea, most commonly due to problems with contact lenses. The eye gets red, painful, light sensitive, with discharge and the vision is commonly affected. If you have a magnifying mirror you can probably see a white spot on the cornea. Remove the contact and see an ophthalmologist as soon as you can arrange.
