Contact lenses, Latisse and eye irritation
You should remove your contact lenses prior to applying Latisse. Latisse should be applied to the upper eyelid at bedtime. If you want to reinsert your lenses, wait at least 15 minutes after application. About 4% of patients experience irritation or redness following Latisse. Have your eyes checked if you are using Latisse.
use latisse at night before you go to sleep, when you do not have contact lenses on.
Wash the face in the morning tthen pit the contact lensesduring the day. Consult the dr that prescribed the latisse
