    Use Clean Hands

    Regardless of what solution you use to clean your contact lenses, you need to have clean hands to limit the amount 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 a good hand washing comes in – keep them clean and you’ll keep your eyes clean.
