Red Eyes from Contacts

I used to not have any problems with my contact lenses, which I have been wearing for a little under a year. But I switched solutions very briefly, then switched back and now my eyes get very badly bloodshot every time I wear them. I switched everything out and stopped wearing them for a couple of months, and even spent a period of time using steroid drops from my eye doctor. No dice. Still red eyes every time. What could be causing this and what can I do about it?

Redness from contact lenses has many causes from solution to the contact lens.

You need to work through this with your eye doctor.

I've already spent a good chunk of change for my eye doctor to eventually basically tell me that he doesn't know what's causing it.

Mine have started doing the same thing!  I think mine has something to do with my thyroid disorder though.  I have hashimoto's.  I also have elevated eye pressure.
