Hmmmm. I have had contacts for quite sometime now and your eyes should not be burning or stinging when you take them out. Maybe you should wash your hands thoroughly and make sure to wash all the stuff off, and don't leave any soap on. That should help. The only few times that my eyes ever burned/stinged was when I didn't wash my hands. And yes, my eyes had sort of a redness to it afterwords as well. That's what I would recommend! Hope it helpes!
