How long should I wait after my last dose of fluorometholone eye drops (prescribed for allergic conjunctivitis) before wearing contacts again?

In brief: Soon

This depends upon the appearance and comfort of the eye.
You should avoid contact wear when the eye is red or getting redder, but when the red is fading and the other symptoms you may have had are fading, then you can wear the contact.
