Is it okay to wear contacts with a popped blood vessel?

Is it okay to wear contacts with a popped blood vessel?

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.

What  can cause a sudden eye blood vessel  to pop? Never had this happen and now there is a red vessel on the side of my right eye.

Eye hemorrhage: An isolated sudden "popped" blood vessel on the white part of the eye, as long as it is not painful or associated with vision changes, is not usually a cause for concern.
