Stop wearing contact lenses while affected by conjunctivitis. 

Chlamydial and Gonorrhea can cause bacterial conjunctivitis that is severe and sight-threatening. If you have been exposed or suspect either infection, an immediate ophthalmologic referral is required.

Please see an eye doctor immediately if you are having trouble opening or keeping your eyes open or exposed to a chemical or toxic agent splash.
