I have a tiny white dot on my pupil after wearing an old contact lens accidentally. My eyes are less red now but what can I do to treat it myself?

Corneal ulcer: This is a serious bacterial infection that needs to be treated with strong antibiotic drops. See an ophthalmologist right away. Save the contact lens so it can be cultured if necessary.
