NO!: Why would you consider such a thing? You cannot make contact lens solution; you have to buy it. There have been very serious eye infections in people who made their own contact lens solutions.

No: It is not advisable to put contact lens solution directly into your eyes. Most of them are disinfectants. Use artificial tears instead. They are readily available over the counter.
