Do not wash eyes with water which you dont deem fit for drinking.
An immediate eye check up to rule out infection is needed

Hello....... Sleeping in lenses provides two barriers from fresh oxygen,the lens and your eyelid. This makes it easier for germs to make contact with your cornea , remove your lenses immediately and consult ophthalmologist in nearest hospital.........
