Natural Remedy for Contact Lens Irritation?
OCT 30, 2013
If contacts are left in someone’s eyes for too long and Visine and saline solution create a burning sensation, would coconut oil be an effective alternative?
I would not recommend instilling any foreign substances that are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the eyes. Homemade remedies are not sterilely manufactured and could potentially introduce toxic chemicals and bacteria to the surface of the eye. Contact lens-related irritation can be due to a variety of potentially severe problems and should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist.
