In brief: Eye & contact care

Be sure you're cleaning and using your contacts as directed by your eye doctor. Consider switching to daily disposable contacts if you use monthly contacts and have a prob w/ redness.
Consider wearing your glasses more often to give your eyes more breaks from the contacts. Consider other causes or red eyes such as allergies. If you still have probs, please talk w/ your eye doctor.
