In brief: Could be a problem

Did the doctor who administered the yellow dye, and diagnosed the dry patch discuss this with you? It could indicate a lens too tight for safe wear, or a temporary patch of dryness depending upon the health of the cornea and eye.
Were you advised to stop wearing the lens? And if you wear the lens now, are you having symptoms.?

Best to not sleep with your lens on until this heals completely, and is fitted properly. Follow the advise of your eye doctor.
