Default Preservative free eye drops

Hi Everyone

Just wondering if there are any preservative free eye-drops that are suitable for use with contacts? I've looked at several brands that have the single dose drops (refresh, systane) but there is no mention of using them with contact lenses.

Thanks in advance

Allergan refresh regular and refresh contacts
Blink Contacts
Aquify

are all great non preservative (dissappearing) options for contact lens wearers.

For dry eyes the reg formula of refresh is great...for normal contact lens wearers refresh contacts is a slightly less aquious. Refresh reg and contacts formula.Blink contacts and Aquify all have dissappearing preservatives and are compatible with all contact lenses.

It looks as though you got some good advice, except maybe that rather odd post by shwetadhamija02. I think he or she misunderstood your question.
