Why do my eyes turn red hours after removing contact lenses?
I removed my contact lenses about six hours ago. I had been wearing them for only two hours. There was no irritation to my eyes, aside from them being a little dry. I applied some lubricating tear drops and they were fine after. I went out and my eyes were normal, but now, six hours later, my eyes are red around my cornea. I didn't rub my eyes or touch them and there is no pain, discharge, dryness, they're just red. I've been using my computer for a while, but my eyes don't normally get dry or red from that. What could have caused this?
