FAQ about Contact Lens Solution

FAQ about Contact Lens Solution

Here’s what you should know about your contact lens solution

So many people all over the world use contact lenses every day. They’re an excellent innovation in eye care. However, many contact lenses require lubrication with contact lens solution. Unfortunately, that’s where things get a bit hazy. What type should you use? Will it hurt your eyes? What’s it made of? When it comes to these and other questions, you can always count on a local eye care center to provide the information you need. Additionally, we invite you to browse the following facts about contact lens solutions that you may not be taking into account.

Moisturizing Contact Lens Solution

What to Use

Different types of contacts may require specific types of solutions. It’s best only to use a contact solution that’s approved by your eye care professional.  Additionally, many use saline solution or rewetting eye drops, but that’s not what they are designed for.  Only use solutions that are specially formulated for contact lenses.

Contact Lens Solution and Case

Multi-Purpose Solutions

It may be smart to take advantage of multi-purpose contact solutions. They can be used with most types of contacts and you can use the same solution to clean, rinse, and disinfect your contact lenses.  This makes the process of caring for your contact lenses much easier, and it helps keep your lenses cleaner, which is great for your overall eye health.

Contact Lens Solution and Clean Hands

Use Clean Hands

Regardless of what solution you use to clean your contact lenses, you need to have clean hands to limit the number of bacteria present on your lenses. The contact lens solution won’t kill everything that’s transferred from your hands including bacteria, oil, and more. That’s where good hand washing comes in – keep them clean and you’ll keep your eyes clean.
