About two and a half weeks ago I made the stupid decision of putting Sandoz eye lubricating drops in my contact holder because of not having solution that night(figuring it was better than water). The following morning, I put my contacts in my eye, and 30 minutes later they became EXTREMELY IRRITATED. I took them out right away and waited for them to heal. My left eye had no signs of problems but my right eye developed this red spot near my cornea along with a white 'area' along my cornea, which is only really visible in proper lighting. It's still irritated in that same way and it's been 2 and a half weeks. My eye isn't bloodshot and gets the occaisional irritated feeling here and there, but still has the whiteish area around the cornea along with the local red spot. I tried to put the right contact in yesterday, and I knew that it wasn't right right when I put it back in, so immediatly I took it out. I saw a general doctor and he put the dye in my eye and everything, but said it was a minor irritation and send me home.

I'm scheduling an appointment with a specialist in the following week. But in the meantime can someone please help me out? I'm worried.
