Does the usage of contact lenses and the application of eyes drops break the fast?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. Whilst fasting, is it okay for me to use contact lenses? Can I also apply eye drops in my eyes whilst fasting?


A. The usage of contact lenses and eye drops in the eyes whilst fasting does not invalidate the fast. Accordingly, you may make use of contact lenses and eye drops in the eyes while fasting. (Al Bahrur-Ra’iq, 2/273)
