Ideally, hairspray should be applied before contact lenses are inserted. This is important because when hairspray is sprayed there is typically a residual amount of the product which remains in the air for a few seconds. This residue can adhere to the contact lenses and cause a variety of problems ranging from mild discomfort to infection. If it is necessary to insert contact lenses prior to using hairspray, closing the eyes while spraying the product and for a few seconds afterwards is recommended.
