Can I use Alamast if I wear contact lenses?

You can use Alamast even if you wear contact lenses. However, you should not have your contact lenses in your eyes when you are applying Alamast drops. If your eyes are red and irritated from allergies, it's a good idea to give your eyes a rest from the contact lenses while you are using this medicine. If your eyes are not red and you wear soft contact lenses, you should wait at least 10 minutes after applying the drops before you insert your contact lenses. The drops contain a preservative that can be absorbed by soft contact lenses. Ask your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
