If you wear rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses, you’ll need a gas permeable solution to keep them comfortable, safe to use and working at their best. Our wide variety of gas permeable contact lens solutions are ideal for both cleaning and caring for your lenses.
What are gas permeable contact lens solutions and why are they important?
Gas permeable contact lens solutions are designed to clean, disinfect and care for RGP lenses. As this kind of lens is only designed for weekly or monthly wear, it’s important to care for your lenses so they’re clean, fresh and ready to be worn the next day.
Each evening, you should use gas permeable solutions to clean your lenses, removing the dirt, debris and any protein deposits that build up throughout the day. Once you’ve finished, give them one last rinse before popping them into your contact lens case filled with fresh solution. This will guarantee that they stay sterile overnight, meaning you can enjoy clear and comfortable eyesight the next day.
What are the benefits of using gas permeable contact lens solutions?
Gas permeable solutions are the only kind that are suitable for disinfecting and cleaning your RGP lenses. In particular, multi-purpose gas permeable solutions make maintaining your lenses quick and simple; it only takes a wipe clean, a rinse and they’re ready to store. You don’t need to worry about finding the right solution for each stage of the process, just use one bottle of all-in-one gas permeable contact solution for everything.
Going through this care routine once a day is generally enough but, if you suffer from dry eyes, you might find that your eyes can start to get slightly irritated as the day goes on. If this happens, just take them out for a bit, give your eyes a short rest and re-wet your lenses using gas permeable contact lenses solution to enjoy a more comfortable feeling.
