• Can I use preservative-free drops with contact lenses?


    Question:

    Are Systane ULTRA preservative-free drops safe to use with contact lenses (for resetting lenses throughout the day)? I just got a corneal abrasion from my contacts on dry eyes, and the ophthalmologist recommended Systane.


    Answer:

    Systane makes an eye drop recommended for use with contact lenses called Systane Contacts. Systane Ultra can be used for dry eye. If this was recommended by your ophthalmologist, monitoring your ocular surface and follow up visits may be warranted.
