Contact Lens Solutions
Daily contact lenses require no solution. 2 weekly / monthly lenses need solution to clean and disinfect the contact lenses at the end of the day. This reduces the risk of infection, and makes your lenses comfortable over their lifetime by reducing any deposits.
Multi-purpose Contact Lens Solutions
With these solutions you can clean, rinse and store your contact lenses. Some even contain a lubricant to improve eye comfort! Used correctly they provide a low hassle flexible way to care for your contact lenses and protect your eyes from infection.
This solution from Coopervision
This solution from Bausch & Lomb is designed to work like your eyes, matching the tear film’s natural pH, uses a lubricant naturally found in the body (hyaluronan) and keeping certain beneficial tear proteins active. This product is designed to give excellent disinfection, while also being gentle to the your eye.
This solution from Sauflon is effectively preservative free as its active ingredient Oxipol combines cleaning, disinfecting and lubricating agents and decomposes to oxygen, salts and water after cleaning the lens. This solution is optimised for new generation Silicon Hydrogel contact lenses and includes an antimicrobial lens case.
This solution from Alcon uses a system called ‘TearGlyde’ to allow the lens surface to keep a thin layer of moisture for improved comfort during wear. A disinfection system protects this solution from infection.
Alcons’s more advanced solution provides up to 16 hours of lens moisture when wearing thanks to its ‘HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix’. This barrier also prevents lipid build-up and removes protein deposits, maintaining comfort thorough the month. Its enhanced dual disinfection formula is effective for all soft contact lenses.
