Probably, but...: Hopefully you didn't sleep in your contacts. That might explain why they stuck onto your eye. If so, don't do that! alternatively, your eye could just be dry or the lens does not fit right. The fix will depend on the cause and that will determine whether it is safe to use contact lenses in the future. See your eye doctor.

Yes: Yes you can, but before you resume the use of lenses, you should have your contact lens fit re-evaluated to ensure the fit is not too tight. Your eye doctor can also look for dry eyes, which can also make the contact lens fit too tight. If dry eye is present, there are several treatment options which might improve your contact lens tolerance.
