The best contact lens care and disinfection products
You can't live without a good quality lens cleaning product to keep your contact lenses clean, comfortable, and fresh. Unless you're using daily disposable contacts, regular cleaning and soaking your lenses in a good quality contact lens solution is an everyday necessity and a habit that should become second nature to you and a part of your daily routine. Your contact lenses are essential for keeping them healthy and comfortable. It is important to maintain a strict hygiene routine for your lenses.
Two types are the most commonly used contact lens cleaning products:
We only feature the top-rated and most trusted brands in our collection of contact lens care products. Contact lens manufacturers make them. It is said that for optimal results, they should be used with particular brands of contacts. But this is not always the best practice and your eye doctor will likely make a recommendation based on your history. For example, Acuvue Revitalens, formerly known as Complete Revitalens, is made by Johnson & Johnson, the Acuvue contact lens manufacturer, so it is recommended to use it with, for instance Acuvue Oasys. On the other hand OptiFree Pure Moist is a product made by Alcon, therefore it's best to use it with Air Optix contact lenses. Renu Multiplus from Bausch & Lomb and SoloCare Aqua (from Menicon) are other popular options for lens care. We find that it is worth trying a few to see which suits you better. Sometimes due to the composition of the solution, some feel better than others. Functionally they are all interchangeable and will all be able to clean and store your lenses well without damaging them.
You can buy all the products in this collection in different sizes to suit your needs. If you are looking for something small to take on your travels, you can either buy a 60ml Acuvue Revitalens or a 500ml Max OptiFresh for those who share a bathroom with another contact lens wearer. You can also find a wide range of products that fall between these two extremes. We offer high-quality contact lenses solutions to meet the needs of all our customers.
Safe lens use requires that you clean and maintain them on the schedule recommended by the manufacturer or your optician. Each lens user should have a fitting with a specialist. This is where proper lens hygiene will be explained and you will get a chance to try it for yourself under supervision. Contact your eye care provider if you have questions about the proper use of your lens care solution. Here are some general guidelines to help you choose the right solution for your situation.
These rules apply to all contact lenses and solutions. Your eye doctor may give you more details about a particular product and its benefits to your eyes health. Also, you can read our tips on how to safely use lenses cases and how contact lens cleaning products affect lens comfort.
