Yes: You describe classic symptoms of dry eyes.

I have kerataconus and wear rgp lenses. My right eye has pain and redness with no apparent cause. It's happened a few times.

Assymetry: Keratconus is almost always assymetrical sometimes not even affecting one eye. While it is possible that the lens bothering you so much needs a better fit, it could also be due to the fact that this eye is worse and has a steeper cone bumping into the lens more often. Check with you ophthalmologist if this is a frequent occurrence. ...Read more
