Contact Lens Solutions

An essential contact lens accessory.

Contact lens solutions

Contact lens solutionIf you want your lenses to always feel fresh, clean and comfortable, you cannot get away without a bottle of lens cleaning solution. Unless you’re using daily disposable contact lenses, regular cleaning and soaking your contacts in a good quality contact lens solution is an everyday necessity and a habit that should become your second nature. Caring for your contact lenses is essential in keeping them safe and comfortable and therefore in looking after your eye’s health. Wearing lenses that haven’t been cleaned or have been cleaned improperly can lead to serious complications including blindness therefore it is vital to keep a stringent lens hygiene at all times.

Types of lens cleaning solutions

There are two most common types of contact lens solutions:

  1. Multipurpose contact lens solution (MPS) - the most popular and commonly used type of lens cleaning system. It cleans the lenses from protein deposits and dirt while also disinfecting them by killing bacteria and fungi. This type of solution can be used for both cleaning and storing (soaking) contact lenses.
  2. Hydrogen peroxide lens cleaning solution - used less commonly, but also very effective in cleaning and disinfecting lenses. Usually recommended for people prone to high protein buildup or allergic to regular multipurpose solutions. It requires extra caution and the use of a special lens case that usually comes with it. This type of product must be rinsed off the lenses before they are inserted as it can cause burning and eye irritation. The rinsing can be done with regular saline or with an MPS.

Which one to choose?

In our selection of contact lenses solutions you will only find products from the most renowned and reputable brands. They are made by contact lens manufacturers and therefore they’re recommended to be used with a particular brand of contacts for optimal results, although that’s not always the rule and you should follow your eye doctor’s recommendations in this regard. 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 contact lens solution is made by Alcon, therefore it’s best to use it with Air Optix contact lenses. Other popular lens care solutions include Renu Multiplus and BioTrue, both from Bausch & Lomb or SoloCare Aqua from Menicon to name just a few.

All of the products available in this category come in different bottle sizes for your convenience. And so on one hand you can buy a 60ml bottle of Acuvue Revitalens if you need something small for your travels and on the other hand you can also buy a 500ml bottle of Max OptiFresh if there are more people in your household who use contact lenses. Then there is a wide selection of everything in between these two end of the spectrum. We provide a variety of high quality contact lens cleaning solutions to satisfy the needs of all customers.

How to use a contact lens solution?

Cleaning contact lenses and making sure that they are properly maintained is one of the most important things when it comes to safe lens use. Every lens user should undergo a lens fitting with a specialist during which proper lens hygiene is explained and emphasized. If you have any doubts about how to use your lens cleaning solution, contact your eye care provider for additional advice. Below we present the list of general rules that apply to most, if not all solutions.

  • Contact lens solution must always be kept in a cool, dark place (not in direct sunlight).
  • Before cleaning your lenses, make sure to thoroughly wash your hands.
  • You shouldn’t mix an old portion of solution with a new one, neither should you mix different brands with each other.
  • Contact your eye practitioner before switching from one brand of solution to another and before trying a new type of solution (for example hydrogen peroxide based one).
  • Never, under any circumstances use water to clean or soak your contact lenses.
  • Replace your lens case with a new one regularly (for example once a month).

These rules apply to all types of solutions and contact lenses. For more detailed information about a particular product that has been prescribed to you by your eye doctor contact them directly. You can also read our advice pieces about how to safely use lens cases and about how contact lens solution affects lens comfort.

How to clean your contact lenses?

Cleaning your contacts is not difficult and with practice it becomes a part of your daily routine just like brushing your teeth. Follow a few simple steps to keep your lenses clean and fresh throughout the day.

  1. After taking your contacts out, apply some solution onto your lens and rub it gently on both sides. Some solutions do not require rubbing (read the manufacturer’s instructions before use).
  2. Rinse your lenses thoroughly.
  3. Fill your clean lens case with a fresh portion of the solution.
  4. Let your lenses soak in fresh contact lens solution for at least a few hours (the minimum soaking time is defined by the manufacturer).
  5. After you’ve taken your lenses out to use them, toss the old solution out of your lens case and rinse it with a fresh batch.
  6. Leave the case out to dry.
