After i put my contacts in my eyes started to burn really bad!?

I've been wearing this pair of contacts for maybe a week now. and i went and washed my hands and tried to put them in but as soon as i put them in my eyes started to burn severely!! so i took them out and went and made sure i got all the soap off my hands and tried again! well, it was still burning! so i just took them out and put them in their case. but what do i do? ive never had that problem with contacts.??

That happens to me on occasion. There are a few causes. 1. You might have them in backwards (check to be sure). 2. They may have been damaged ( get anew pair). 3. Extended wear or sleeping in them can cause micro scratches on the eye (don't wear them for a few days). If your eyes start to bother you when you're not wearing them, or it a new pair doesn't help, you should see your doctor.

That happens to me sometimes when my hands Are dirty. Make sure you wash your hands every time you put them on or take them off and clean them with solution In the palm of your hand. If that doesn't work Let them soak in solution for a while and then try again.

If they are disposable ones I would open up a new pair. If they are conventional lenses I would suggest cleaning them with a few drops of the contact solution on the lenses and rub it in. Then rinse them off and see if it helped. There may be some little debris on them that's causing the irritation
