Can I Use the Same Applicator for Both Eyes with Latisse?

Can I use the same applicator for both eyes, just use one side for each eye? Instructions are to just use one applicator per eye. Why is that? What's the problem?

The recommendations of using separate brushes for the application stems from not wanting to contaminate each eyelid with microorganisms that might be present on the other.  This is to prevent an infection of the eyelids and the recommendations should be followed.
