In brief: Alternate cleaning

Change your daily cleaning routine to one using hydrogen peroxide as the sterilizing agent.
Do not use any solutions that contain preservatives on the lenses. Do not sleep with the lenses in your eyes.

In brief: Red eyes

Not wearing contacts usually allows the eyes to heal up fairly quickly.
If only one eye is red or if there is discharge then you should see a physician as you likely have an infection. If the redness does not resolve in a couple of days then see your dr.
