Elevator vs. Ground

There is a man that his dropping an eye drop into his eye while standing on the ground. Then he drops an eye drop into his eye, while standing in an elevator that is going up. Will the man's eye reach the drop faster while standing in the moving elevator than on the ground or the same?

Presumably it is the same because the whole contexts of the lift are moving up, and therefore where each element is relative to the other stays the same.

Is that the answer you think?
