In brief: With advice
A corneal ulcer is a patch of bacterial growth on the surface of the eye, most commonly underneath a contact lens which makes a terrific incubation chamber. If you suspect this, take out the lens and see your ophthalmologist right away as you will need antibiotics and follow up.
You can go back to contacts when it is healed; let your ophthalmologist tell you when that has occurred.
