Can I use any contact lens solutions listed on your website?

While we offer a range of contact lens solutions on our website, it's important to ensure that the solution you choose is appropriate for your type of contact lenses and compatible with your eyes. Not all solutions are suitable for all types of lenses, and individual sensitivities can vary.

Your optician knows your eyes and what they need. If they suggest a certain solution or brand, it's important to follow their advice. Different lenses and individual eye conditions may require specific solutions for optimal eye health.

Allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients can cause discomfort or complications. Always check the solution's ingredients. If you're uncertain about any component, consult your optician or contact us, and we'll provide more information.

What solutions we offer:

  • Multipurpose Solutions: These are all-in-one solutions designed to clean, rinse, disinfect, and store contact lenses. Their convenience makes them a popular choice for many lens wearers.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide Solutions: These solutions provide deep cleaning and are especially useful for those with allergies or sensitivities. They require a neutralization step, either through a special case or a neutralizing tablet, to ensure they're safe to use.

  • Saline Solutions: Primarily used for rinsing contact lenses after cleaning and before insertion, they do not disinfect lenses. It’s important to not use them for cleaning or storing your contact lenses.

  • Hard/RGP Lens Solutions: Specifically designed for rigid gas permeable (RGP) or hard contact lenses, they ensure the lenses stay comfortable and clean.

 

Selecting the right solution goes beyond mere preference. If you're not sure about the differences between the solutions, our optical consultants can explain what makes each one unique.

However, keep in mind that while we can provide information about products, we cannot specifically recommend one solution over another. Your optician's advice should always be the primary guiding factor.
