Can I Wear Contacts With A Burst Eye Vessel
Stye on eyelid: Yes but..... If the stye is small, and does not push on the cornea, it is ok to wear contacts.

Can I just cover my dominant eye with a bandage and wear glasses to force my nondominant eye to focus?
Lengthy time: The dominant eye is the guiding eye for focus and tracking. The focus shifts to the non-dominant eye when the dominant is covered. To force the non-dominant to become dominant requires continuous loss of the dominant eye for a years' time. This is an issue with eye injury, why would you want this shift to take place otherwise. ...Read more

YES, But: I assume you have a red eye from a broken blood vessel in the sclera ( while part) of your eye. The vessel and blood will not come in contact with a contact lens, but it would be best to give your eye a few days red. Wearing a contact lens may slow the healing process. You may want to be evaluated by an eye doc to make sure there is nothing else wrong withyour eye. ...Read more
I have a stye in my left eye. Will I be able to wear my contact lenses and wear makeup? Is there a eye drop I can buy to quickly get rid of this?
Yes, probably: The best initial treatment for a stye is warm compresses applied several times a day. Contacts are OK, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly before/after. Avoid eye make-up, as you can contaminate it, making infection more likely when you use the make-up again. If you experience pain, vision changes, sensitivity to light, a sandy/gritty sensation or discharge from your eye, seek immediate care ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long an eye scratched heal? My doctor puts a clear contact lense or what they called bandage and gave me an eye drop for anti-infective.
Usually in 1-2 days.: Most scratches in the eye is to the cornea. It is very sensitive and thus painful. Fortunately, they tend to heal very fast. Most within a day and definitely by two days.

It should be removed in a day or two. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could i just cover my dominant eye with a bandage and wear glasses to force my left dominant eye to focus?
Yes but why: The body prefers to function with one eye being dominant and it appears that for you it is the right eye. Switching dominance takes up to a year of steady covering of the presently dominant eye. If you succeed what have you gained? There is no way to have double dominance - your brain will always pick one eye. ...Read more
