Dr. Richard Bensinger answered

Corneal infection: A corneal ulcer is usually a spot of infection on the surface of the cornea (the clear window at the front of the eye.). Most commonly it occurs as a painful irritation under a contact lens, and the eye will usually be reddened. If this occurs, remove the contact lens and see an ophthalmologist right away.
