Need more evaluation: The contacts may be too old, too tight, or you may have an infection. You may be losing contact tolerance or have other diseases.

OTC meds won't work: Dr. Madaan is correct about inflammation leading to increased nasal blood flow & congestion. Blood leaving the nose passes through veins in the lower eyelids & cheeks. Fluid leaks out causing edema. See your pcp for nasal antihistamine sprays that reduce congestion & topical steroid sprays that control nasal inflammation. Get more sleep. Still looking tired?
