An essential contact lens accessory.
If 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.
There are two most common types of contact lens solutions:
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.
