I have contacts I take out every day and I find that if I leave them on overnight or for more than 14 or 15 hours at a time, my eyes also do that. My eye doc said it was because when the contacts are in, they keep air and dust particles out of the eye (like a little shield). When you take them out, the air and microscopic particles hit the eye and cause brief irritation until your eye gets adjusted to it. I switched to a brand of contact that is supposed to let more oxygen in, and it helps a little.

Burning and itching in the eyes can also be due to eye strain. Once the contacts are out, you must be suffering from eye strain while focusing etc. It can also be due to some allergy that your eye gets protected from while not wearing the lens. Try washing your eyes with clear water after removing the lens and see if this helps. If not please consult your eye specialist. Hope this helps. Take care!
