Eyes red after removing contacts

So I get this problem where my eyes can get quite itchy and red after removing contacts...i'd say this happens maybe 2/3 of the time. The itchiness lasts a good 5-10 minutes and the redness stays for maybe an hour. Usually only happens to one eye and the other eye is okay. This isn't a problem when i first put in my contacts...but it does get sore after few hours of wear..but not as bad as when I remove them.

Any idea what's causing this?

your eyes might be dry when you're taking off the contacts. make sure your eye is lubricated cuz you might risk damaging your cornea. Sometimes i yawn before i take mine off, or if you have those lens drops, even better.

Seems like your eyes are dry when your contacts are off, your cornea is the first thing that contacts with air, if you had your contacts on for a long period of time, your eyes might have adapted to being covered with a contact so it isnt the first thing that contacts with air, just try to moisten it, yawn while taking it off helped me alot !

wash your hands before you remove your contacts
also, put a few drops of you contact solution into your eye before you remove your contacts
this should do the trick

gf had this problem, just recently switched to clean clear solution. Eyes no longer turn red and no more drops needed. gotta leave it in the solution for at least 4 hours tho or else it will burn your eyes out. Clear Care :: For Fresh, Clean and More Comfortable Contact Lenses

I dip my fingers in the contact solution too before I take my contacts out. This seems to work for me to reduce irritation.

worse case, if you don't wear contacts all the time is to switch to daily disposables
