is it okay to use eye wash instead of lens solution for storing contacts?

no way !

noooooooooooooo,it is not sterile

►◄The►◄ ►Answers◄ ►◄Girl►◄
No, it is not sterile and will damage the plastic.

Despite everyone's assertion that it is not okay, it can be. As long as the solution you are using is saline (99.1% water, 0.9% NaCl), you're fine.

Despite the fact that many solutions you buy on the market contain other things to clear your contacts even further and remove protein, pure saline does the job fine as long as you wash your contacts off and rub them a bit. I wouldn't recommend doing it for a prolonged period of time, but doing so a few times won't do any harm.

In cases where I've needed to take out my contacts but haven't had any solution with me, I've more than once put in a tiny pinch of salt into a container the size of contact lens carriers. Doing so worked fine.

Just make sure you don't put anything like common Visine (no NaCl in it) into your storage container. It will shrivel your contacts up as the salt in them tries to balance its concentration with the surrounding solution.

Also, for those who are saying that eye wash doesn't kill bacteria, you are wrong. Salt does kill bacteria, even in a small quantity such as that found in saline. It's not as effective as a contact lens solution, but it won't cause any harm if you do it for a while. People used to use pure saline for the contacts, anyway.

Only if you are looking at wanting an eye infection soon. Eye wash is usually just sterile saline. Eye solution is meant for contacts and cleans the bacteria off of them if you rub the lenses

No, do not do that.

For the most part, NOOOO...it won't kill the bacteria and remove the layer of lipid/protein. So, the next time you put them in, they won't be comfortable and you will more prone to eye infections.

It would be okay just to store them so that they don't dry up then before you put them back into your eyes, put them in the contact solution for the time required for it to get disinfected.

Never, it can cause infections and its not sterile, contact solution cleans and hydrates your contacts, it cleans any build up on your lenses, and cleans the bacteria on them.


No, most definately not. Contact lens solution has ingredients in it that will clean and disinfect your contact lenses, whereas the eye wash does not. If you have already used it to store your lenses as a one off then store them in the proper contact lense solution before putting them in your eyes, this will disinfect them.
