To keep your monthly or weekly lenses working to their best standard and feeling super comfortable you need to clean them at least once a day. Using a contact lens cleaner and a saline solution is a great way to get rid of any dirt or debris that has built up on the surface of the lens. We stock several high-quality cleaners and salines perfect for doing the job quickly and effectively.
What are contact lens cleaners & saline solutions and why are they important?
Wearing contacts for most of the day, it’s normal for bits of dirt and debris to build up on the surface. With daily lenses, you can throw them away at the end of the day, so you don’t need to do anything. However, 2-weekly or monthly lenses get reused each day so you need to keep them clean to avoid putting dirty lenses in your eyes.
Contact lens cleaning solutions make sure that your lenses are clear of any build-ups that could make your eyes irritated or uncomfortable. Rinsing your lenses and keeping them in a contact lens saline solution is just as important as it ensures that they keep their shape and that they’re in perfect condition before you put them back in. Saline solutions are made of a sterilised mix of salt and water which is ideal for giving your contacts a gentle rinse as well as storing them. The result is lenses that feel natural to wear and so can be worn for longer hours.
We also sell protein removal tablets designed to offer a more thorough clean of contact lenses. With Ultrazyme Universal, for example, you can dramatically improve your wearing experience by enhancing the comfort of your lenses to the point where you might not even remember they’re in your eyes.
What are the benefits of using contact lens cleaners & saline solutions?
Cleaning your contact lenses is essential to using them on a monthly or weekly wearing pattern safe and comfortable. Using a contact lens cleaner makes sure that they feel right in your eyes, while providing clear vision all the time.
Using contact lens saline solution ensures that your lenses stay in the best condition, caring for them as you store them while you sleep. It’s also particularly effective for rinsing off any protein build-ups which may naturally occur from using your lenses for several hours a day.
