Our expert says:
Please don't wear your contact lenses during an infection - it will cause swelling of the corneas and can cause damage. Ask an optometrist to also check your eyeball pressure to exclude glaucoma. If this is abnormal you need to see an eye specialist. If it is normal, go back to your GP as a normal conjunctivitis usually clears up within 72 hours. He needs to check for corneal ulcers and/or other complications
