Saline for contacts: No. Contact solution is a commercially prepared solution for cleaning and disinfecting contact lenses. Most have preservatives, a binding agent, a buffer, and a surfactant or wetting agent. Saline nasal has none of these agents, can't disinfect, and will cause stinging and burning, and IF the nasal saline has been used in the nose, you may introduce bacteria which live in the nose into your eyes.
