    It is not very good to store the contacts in eyes drops. If you run out of solutions and only have eye drops by hands, then you can only adopt this method. Buy some solutions tomorrow and store the contacts in solution. Because contact lenses solution could kill bacteria. With figure tip rubbing the contacts softly, the solution could help remove protein from the contact lenses which could prolong the usage of contact lenses and help protect eyes. However, eye drops don't have such function. So it is better to store your contact lenses in solutions. Get some more tomorrow.

    Well, if you do so, just kiss goodbye for your lovely contact lenses. Your contacts will absorb those drops, which are not meant to be put on contacts. And you must know that bad caring for your contact lenses properly can lead to a variety of eye infections, including some that cause blindness. Actually, contact lens care is easier than ever, so here are some ways to store your contacts. Firstly, clean up your hands avoiding transferring germs and dirt into eyes, do not use moisturizing soaps, as they are not good for contact lenses; secondly, remove one lenses and clean it by the recommended solutions, that is, put in onto your palm and drop several care systems drops, next wash them by your index finger; thirdly, rinse the lens again to remove the loosened debris; fourthly, place the lens in your clean lens case or lens holder and fill with fresh solution; at last, repeat steps two through four for your other lens. May this can help you.
