Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Eye discomfort, which is lumpy, larger in size, and more sensitive to light may be caused by inflammation due to improper use of contact lenses. Some of the triggers are, for example, the diameter is too wide, the water content is too high or too low, the thickness is too thick or too thin, and so on. This inflammation can be mild and temporary, but it can persist until contact lens use is stopped.
In addition, your complaint may also occur due to other factors that are not necessarily related to the contact lenses you use, for example:
Conjunctivitis (inflammation of the clear membranes of the eye)
Glaucoma (increased intraocular pressure)
Keratitis (inflammation of the cornea of the eye)
Pterygium (eye membrane that appears due to exposure to UV rays and excessive dry air on the eyes), and so on
A doctor's examination is needed in person to assess how severe your condition is at this time. In mild conditions, there is often no need for specific handling other than choosing the right contact lens. However, if the condition is considered severe enough, it may also require the administration of special drugs or other medical therapy by an ophthalmologist. So, check with the doctor immediately ..
Currently, if there is no medical indication that requires it, you should minimize the use of contact lenses first. If you also want to use contact lenses, first consult an ophthalmologist so that contact lenses are selected that are suitable for your eye condition. Take good care of these contact lenses so they don't cause inflammation or infection. Also, keep your eyes clean, that is, by not touching them with dirty hands, not using excessive cosmetics around the eyes, and also not applying anything to the eyes unless recommended by a doctor.
Hope this helps ..
