Don’t Let Contact Lens Solutions keep you from wearing contacts!



There are many contact lens solutions on the market to store and disinfect your contact lenses.  Many people wear disposable contacts and all except the one day disposable contacts require contact lens solutions to prevent bacteria from growing in your contacts that can cause sight threatening conditions.  Prior to using a new solution, read all the instructions on the box and bottle and follow them carefully. If you have questions, contact your eye care provider.

One of the most effective solutions is a hydrogen peroxide system.  These don’t have preservatives in them. This solution can be a good choice for people who are allergic to preservatives in many contact lens solutions.  Never rinse contact lenses with hydrogen peroxide solutions. And, don’t put these solutions directly in your eyes, the FDA cautions. Hydrogen peroxide solutions come in a red bottle cap to help avoid confusion.

BE CAREFUL:  Without neutralizing the peroxide, when you put contacts in your eyes YOU will have tremendous burning, stinging and irritation and possible corneal abrasions . Sometimes, the contact lens case contains a neutralizer, but if not, you’ll need to add a special tablet to neutralize the solution.

Before choosing a contact lens solution, talk to your eye doctor about what is the best cleaning and disinfecting method for your contact lenses. Never change your contact lens care system without consulting your provider.
