Latisse is safe to use for contact users. Be sure to remove contacts before applying Latisse in the nights.
Latisse and contact lenses
Latisse should be applied to the upper eyelids only - and usually it's preferred to do this at night. That way, when you close your eyes to sleep, the lids will touch and transfer the solution to the lower lids as well. Take your contacts out before applying the Latisse, and everything should be just fine. There are many, many, many people who successfully use Latisse and wear contacts.

Yes. You can continue wearing contacts when you're using Latisse. The key is to wait about 15 minutes after applying Latisse before re-inserting as this gives the product enough time to dry.
Latisse should be applied without contact lens' in case any of the medication gets in your eye.
Latisse should be applied without contact lens' in case any of the medication gets in your eye. If this happens you will need to flush the eye with water. If the medication becomes impregnated within the contact lens it can be irritating.
Hope this helps.
