You cannot donate blood when you have an eye inflammation with severe symptoms. When you are free of symptoms, you can donate blood, even if you are still using eye drops.

Eye drops used for bacterial inflammation of the eyes and allergic eye inflammation or for moistening the eyes do not prevent blood donation.

Would you like more information? Please call the free information number for blood donors on 0800 0 5801 (Mon to Fri from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).
