Tell me I'm extremely silly.

I rushed while putting in my disposable contacts this morning, and one of them had that irritating something-is-caught-in-it sensation that I ignored, thinking it will eventually go away. Instead it's been bugging me for the last four hours. Having no contact solution with me at the office, I took it out and gave it a one-second rinse in tap water before putting it back in. The irritation is gone and I feel great, but now I'm sort of paranoid that this short tap-water-bath is going to ruin my eyesight. (Thanks, Yahoo answers!) Is the risk bad enough that I should just take them both out and go contact-less today?

I've read this thread
, which is similar, but I'm not soaking my contacts in water overnight so it seems less worrying. On the other hand, there are a bunch of "Contacts must NEVER EVER EVER touch water!!!11!" stuff floating around the web.
Bah, I know
I'm overreacting to this. It would still help to get confirmations of some kind, though.
