Stop contact wear: If you have redness and pain you should not be wearing contacts. Remove them and see an eye doctor immediately.

Stop contacts: If your eye is red and painful, please do not wear your contacts. Make an appointment with your eye doctor. Also buy some glasses, you need them for situations such as this.
