How do I know if my contact lenses have caused a fungal infection in my eyes?
Because many conditions - from injuries to the surface of the eye to bacterial and fungal
infections - can cause similar symptoms, only an ophthalmologist can diagnose a fungal
infection in your eyes.
Symptoms to watch for include redness and/or pain that does not improve when the contact lens is removed, tearing, increased sensitivity to light, blurred vision, discharge, and swelling.
If you wear contact lenses and are experiencing symptoms such as those above, remove your lenses and consult your eye care professional immediately.
