I Feel Like There Is Sand Under My Eye
Many causes: Many things can cause a sandy feeling with contact lenses. The lenses may be old and needing replacement, you may be intolerant of the solution being used, the eyes may be dry or have an early infection.

You should feel better in am, if not, see a doc. ...Read more

See eye doctor: If you have ropey secretion from the lids, then you are likely suffering from inflammation of the eyelids (blepharitis) Since one cannot be sure that you may have a foreign body in the lower lids, you need to consult an opthalmologist (not a optician) to get check out if eyewash does not alleviate this irritation. ...Read more
