Loratadine Eye Drops
No but: In general, it is not a good idea to apply any medicated or preservative-containing on the lens. You can however put the drops in and wait about 30 minutes before wearing the contact lens. On the other hand, the worst scenario is that the drop may shorten the life of your lens somewhat if you do use the drops.

Separate issues: Claritin (loratadine) is a reasonable anti-histamine and can be of assistance in attenuating your runny nose. It will have no effect on the dark circles around your eyes which is sometimes genetic but may have other causes. If the nose problem persists, see an otolaryngologist. An oculoplastic surgeon can deal with the dark circles.

Nasal steroid: Nasal steroid is far more effective than antihistamine in relieving nasal symptoms but it does take a few days for it to give you optimal benefits. Nasal antihistamine, which requires a Rx, works much faster. If you don't get enough relief from both of the above, an allergy consult would be a good option.
