In brief: First, take out CLs

Irritation can come from your cl cleaning solutions, the type of cls your wear, and whether your eyes dry out with them, and also from ocular surface disorders.
An eye md can sort out the various causes and get you on a regimen so that you can be sucessful again with cls. You may need to stay out of cls for a few weeks while being treated, especially if you have allergies or dry eye.
