Can wearing contact lenses produce the red-eye effect in photographs?

No. "red eye" is the natural color of the back of the eye and is produced in photos by the camera lense being in almost the same line as the flash. Contact lenses have no impact on that. Read more...

I wear contact lenses and often suffer from itching and red eye. What is going on?

Probably allergy. Sounds like you could be allergic. It could be due to solutions, the lenses (giant papillary conjunctivitis) or even unrelated to both. I would check with your eye doctor on this. Read more...
Allergy. It sounds like an allergic reaction. Please consult your doctor for a different contact lens material or solution. You may want to use preservative free contact lens solution and daily contact lenses are less problematic and better tolerated. Read more...

What are good red eye drops that work with soft contact lens?

None. Red eyes with contact lens use are a symptom of an underlying problem. If your eyes always get red with lens use, see your ophthalmologist. Chronic vasoconstrictive drops can be problematic making your eyes even redder over the long run. Read more...
Depends. If the issue is only dryness causing eye redness, any over the counter lubricating drop would help (do not use the ones that say 'gets the red out'). These are all compatible with contact lenses. Be sure the redness is not due to allergy, infection or internal eye inflammation. Your ophthalmologist can help if the redness is persistent.

Is it normal to have red eye and painful feeling when you are wearing bandage contact lens?

Yes. If you are wearing the lens because you have a corneal problem, this can be normal until the cornea clears up. I would have your eye doctor check to make sure the fit of the lens is good because this can cause discomfort and eye redness as well. Read more...
Probably. The redness and pain is probably the results of the injury or infection that made the bandage lens necessary in the first place. Read more...

Contact lensoverwear. If your eyes are continually red after contact lens wear i would recommend consulting your optometrist or ophthalmologist to make sure you are not developing corneal hypoxia or contact lens overwear before addressing the redness. Read more...

What is the reason for my eye redness when I wear my contact lens too late at night?

Many possibilities. Poor fit, dryness, irritation from preservatives in your cleaning solution, buildup of protein deposits on the lens itself are all common possibilities. Although some contacts are approved for long-term/overnight wear, i believe the healthiest options are to never wear overnight, and consider daily disposable lenses (so that you are always putting in a clean, fresh, preserve.-free lens each day).

One eye has red eye in photos, but the other eye never does. Could this be an indication of a medical problem?

Yes. The red eye side is probably normal. The other side may have something blocking the view, or is turned in or out side, or have a major vision problem. I assume this is a child. This requires evaluation very soon by a pediatric ophthalmologist (or a regular ophthalmologist if an adult). Don't delay. Read more...

Why do I get red eye in photos but my friends don't?

Better techinque! Red eye is simply the light from a flash or other light source reflecting back from the retina of your eye through your dilated pupil. Some cameras have a method to shrink your pupil to reduce the "red reflex". Talk to a trained photographer for techniques to help you. Not a medical problem but a medical/biological reason. Hope you are not "seeing red" due to my answer! Read more...
Red eye reduction. Usually it's pupil size (more dilated then more of a red reflex from the flash) and the relative angle of the light. Light colored eyes typically have larger pupils in the dark. Read more...
