Eye drops are therapeutic preparations for ophthalmic diseases. They should not be necessary for daily use, nor should they be used when wearing contact lenses. Eye drops contain complex chemical components, which are easy to accumulate in contact lenses and increase local concentration.

In addition, the chemical composition, preservatives and other substances may also affect the lens material, causing lens denaturation. In short, wearing contact lens eye drops not only can not play a therapeutic effect, but also may damage the health of the eyes, the composition of the eye drops is not indiscriminate use.
