It could be due to a number of things. You could be allergic to the contact lens material, or to the deposits secreted from your eyes that adhere to the contacts, or the solution you are using. Also, if you are over wearing your contacts or not replacing them at the suggested intervals could cause this. It is best that you go to an optometrist to get your eyes examined so we can find the underlying issues and address them.

#1 put drops in throughout the day over the top of the contacts (start at 4x/day and go up or down from there and make sure that the drops say that they are approved for contacts), #2 put a drop in about 1 minute before taking out your lenses to float them and make sure they are not sticking to the front of the eye, #3 reduce wearing time or take a break from the contacts in the middle of the day and let them soak in solution, #4 if the above instructions don’t stop your symptoms: see your eye doctor and have them check for Keratitis, GPC, corneal infiltrates, and mechanical rubbing of the contact lenses on the eyes. You may need to be switched to daily disposable contacts or need medicated eye drops.
Keep in mind, if your eyes are sore or red, NEVER put a contact lens on them...you are inviting problems.
I suspect that the fit of your contact lenses needs to be re-evaluated, potentially changed. Alternatively, if a person is having pain and redness in the eye upon contact lens removal, the cornea may be inflamed. This would require stopping contact lens wear for a designated period of time and potentially using a medicated eye drop.
Please follow up with your eye care provider before there is permanent injury to your eye!
