Is it safe to wear colored contact lenses if I have amblyopia in one eye?

Yes

Amblyopia
colored contact lens shouldn't worsen amblyopia. amblyopia is treated by forcing the brain to use the weaker eye and/or correcting the weaker eye's vision

Is it safe for someone with an eye problem to wear nonprescription contact lenses?

Yes but why?

Head-eye
I assume you are talking about cosmetic lenses to change the eye color or appearance. These do come in plano which has no correction. But it depends upon your eye problem. If you are being actively treated for an eye problem, best to consult with your treating ophthalmologist to see if wearing any type of contact could be safe.

Can be safe

Contact_lens
These contacts can be safe if fitted properly and taken care of. Most likely nothing will happen to your eyes, except for a little dryness maybe.

Is it safe to wear only one contact lens if I have a lazy eye?

De[ends

Contact_lens
If you are older and out of the amblyogenic (amblyopia susceptible) age range then wearing a contact lens in the better seeing eye poses no problem to the vision. Sometimes children are treated for amblyopia and a contact lens is placed in the weaker eye and needs to be worn all the time to improve vision permanently.

Is it safe to wear band aid contact lens when you are sleeping? My right eye (the scratched one) has a cloudy vision, is it normal?

Yes

Contact_lens
As the eye heals after an abrasion, vision can be blurry. In addition, the lens can get cloudy as well due to medications and mucous. It is safe to sleep in approved bandage lenses. When wearing a contact lens after an abrasion, it is important to attend all your eye appointments.

Is it safe to use "tears naturale ii" eye drops to soak my contact lenses in if I don't have regular solution?

Emergency only

Only in a situation where you have no appropriate solution. The ingredient in the tears is different that saline , or disinfecting solution. Make sure you soak your lenses in an appropriate solution before reinserting them

Dr. Daniel Bustos answered:

Is it safe to use multipurpose contact lens solution to moisturize my eyes?

Not exactly

Contact_lens
While there are certainly worse things to put in your eyes, the multipurpose contact lens solution is not chemically designed to use as a lubricant for the eyes. The pH and overall chemical composition was designed for the disinfecting of contact lenses; while in very small quantities, it won't harm the eyes, to use them regularly and in larger quantities will irritate the eyes significantly.

Would it be a good idea to wear both contact lenses for amblyopia?

Depends

Contact_lens
You will have to try wearing and not wearing a contact in the amblyopic eye to determine if it helps you.
