Contaminated lens: It sounds as if there is some contaminant in the solutions into which your contact lens was placed after removing them previously. Take the lenses out - consider discarding them - and clean the case thoroughly with soap and water, a rinse with rubbing alcohol, another water rinse and let the cases dry before using them. ...Read more
There was a stinging feeling when I put the contact lens in my eye, I removed them in about 45 min and my left eye vision got cloudy.
See your eye doctor: If you have eye drops (and you should if you are using contacts) then use the drops in your left eye to rinse out any mucous that may be there obstructing your vision. If your vision doesn't improve after rinsing your eye, then you should see a doctor as soon as possible to have your eye examined. ...Read more

Contact lens: Intolerance may be caused by an issue with your eye, the solutions you use, or the contact lens itself. If your eye doesn't bother you when the lens isn't in place, then it's probably due to the lens or the solution. Try a new contact lens to see if this helps. If not, then you should see your eye doctor. ...Read more
Contacts: Probably yes but please contact your eye doctor for certainty. ...Read more
Depends, but mostly: On factors such as cleanliness, duration and frequency of use. Infection and allergic conjunctivitis can occur and are more likely if the lenses aren't taken care of properly or are over worn. So, they can be bad for the eyes if an infection develops. Hard contact lenses can temporarily change the shape of the cornea. Best to see a good eye specialist. ...Read more
2 possibilities: Some movement of contact lenses is normal and desirable. Too much movement causes blurred vision and discomfort. Your eye doctor can evaluate whether the amount of movement is okay or if you need a different contact lens. ...Read more
There isn't one: Don't think there is one. Some may be worse than others but acuvue oasys and coopervision biofinity are pretty good. A good fit is crucial though and depends on the curvature of the lens. These vary from lens to lens. I suppose the best one would technically be a scleral lens which is a hard lens. They also have the dual purpose of lubricatong the eye. Most people aren't that dry though. ...Read more
No: But you must be careful where you get them and the quality of the lenses. Most problems occur due to infection or expiration of the lenses. Also, some people's eyes may be more sensitive than others. If your eyes become red, take them out. ...Read more
Yep: Make sure you have a good fit. ...Read more
Yes: Yes overuse can lead to contact lens overwear (irritation, redness, etc), as well as increased risk for corneal infections (which can permanently cause vision loss), decreased oxygenation (corneal pannus), and the lenses can tear after used beyond what they are supposed to be used. ...Read more

Redness/ pain: Contacts commonly cause eye irritation, especially if worn for too long or if you sleep in them. Redness, blurred vision, pain, and overall irritation are common symptoms. The longer you wear your contacts, the worse it will get. It should feel better the longer your contacts are out. If your symptoms do not go away with the contacts out see your eye md as this may be a more serious problem. ...Read more
Not recommended: Contact lens solution is not formulated for this purpose. If you want to decrease costs, buy the generic lubricant eye drops. ...Read more
Eye blood vessels: Often get dilated when any type of stimulus is applied to your eyes. If you aren't experiencing any other symptoms, then there is nothing to worry about. Try to avoid using "get the red out" drops to help this. ...Read more
Mostly not: Worn correctly with sensible precautions, contact lens can be very safe aside from the obvious convenience and potential to correct vision. People who get into trouble are those who fail to follow the instructions and do things like overwear, leaving them in when the eye gets painful or red and not renewing them properly. ...Read more
For some people, yes: Contact lenses for most people are very comfortable, but for some they are not. They will not cause dry eye, but if you have dry eye, you may find contacts to be uncomfortable and irritating. ...Read more
Need fitting: Like for halloween perhaps? It is generally safe to use contact lenses but even if you only use them for one day you should have an eye exam and fitting for lenses. This is so an appropriate curvature can be selected, and to be sure you know how to insert and remove the lens. I have seen people develop a corneal ulcer with less than one day of use, so there is always some risk. ...Read more
