Thank you for your query at
There are only 2 reasons to it when we cry the eyes do get red and itchy & wearing a contact lens for long , also causes redness & dryness of the eyes .
The best advise would be remove the contact lens & take a good long nap .
If it still does not better, then you can try Refresh Eye Drops 2-3 times per eye.
Feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

I only wore it for four hours, and is there anything else I can take because I think it is the pink eye since it is only getting worse, I did not wear contact lenses since yesterday and slept once and took a nap but it is just getting worse, it is hard for me to even close my eyes. Its like the muscles do not allow me. Is there anything I can take for the pink eye.

Since its not resolving even after a good nap, i will advise you to take Ciplox eye drops 3 times daily every 6 hours for the next 3 days.
You could have picked up an infection which is making the conjunctiva reddish.
Also i will advise the use of Refresh Tear Drops.
