Hallo Vicky
Patanol is used for allergic conjunctivitis. It should not be used with contact lenses (you should only put it in 10 minutes after using the drops) You may need to see your doctor to exclude infection or abnormal eyeball pressure or may need something stronger like cortisone eyedrops.
Please make an appointment with your GP. Your optometrist can also check your eye pressure.
