Sore eyes on and off for 3 months - please help!

Hi, i've been having sore eyes on and off for about 3 months now. It is usually my left eye, and the pain can range from minimal to suvere, and the inside of the eye, beside the pupil, is usually very red, and usually also results in a headache. My eyes also seem to be tired constantly, although I seem to get a decent amount of sleep. They feel quite dry however. I wear contact lenses too, and have done so for just over a year. I'm 16. Cheers for any help, this is becoming very annoying now and I have no idea what could be causing it.
I think this is also causing fairly frequent headaches. I have also been to the optician in the last 3 months and everything was OK apparently.

There's a bit of a language problem. A lot of Brits call whatever eye person they see an "optician", whereas over here an optician does nothing but make glasses.

So, my point is you should see an ophthalmologist. It could be an infection or something more serious like uveitis. I would think dry eye or allergies would affect both eyes.

Hi there, yeah here and optician is basically an 'eye doctor' since he has all the necessary equipment, and the doctor will send you there. Anyway, i've booked an appointment, hopefully I will get the infection or whatever it is cleared up. Cheers.
