Which lens solution is best?

Contact lens cleaning solutionFor your eye health, it is vital that your lenses feel comfortable and clean all the time. Unless you're using daily disposable contact lenses, regular disinfection and soaking of your contacts in a good quality contact lens solution is an everyday necessity and a habit that should become your second nature. You must take good care of your contact lenses to ensure they are safe and comfortable. Incorrect handling and maintenance or lens wear can cause serious problems including blindness.

What is in contact lens cleansing solution?

There are two types of contact lens solutions that are most common:

  1. Multi purpose solution (MPS), - This is the most popular and commonly used type of lens care system. It cleans lenses from dirt and removes protein, while also disinfecting them from bacteria and fungi. These products can be used to clean or soak contact lenses.
  2. Hydrogen peroxide lens disinfecting solution - This is less frequently used, but extremely effective at cleaning and disinfecting lenses. It is recommended for people who are allergic to regular multi-purpose cleaners or those with high protein buildup. It is best to be cautious and use the special lens case that comes with it. The lenses must be rinsed thoroughly after using this product, as it can cause eye irritation or burning. Regular saline is sufficient, but an MPS can be used.

Does it matter what contact lens solution you use?
