Contact Lens Solutions

Multi-purpose solutions are formulated to clean and disinfect soft disposable contact lenses. They are convenient and simple to use.

Please ensure that you change your solution each time you wear your lenses. If lenses are not worn regularly it is advisable to discard the solution at least twice each week in order to ensure complete sterility. Although many manufacturers claim it is not necessary to rub lenses to remove proteins, debris and microorganisms we continue to recommend a rub and rinse before soaking soft lenses for a minimum of 6 hours in their container.

Always rinse your lenses before insertion and never change products without first seeking advice. Patients attending our clinics with irritated, red or dry eyes often initiate the problems by changing their recommended solutions.

Further advice

Never use tap water for rinsing your soft contact lenses.

Always clean your contact lens container at least once each week with Multi-purpose solutions and dry in air.

In the case of persistent eye irritation discontinue use, remove lenses from your eyes and consult your contact lens practitioner.

Synergi

Most Multipurpose solutions contain preservatives and are not harmful to the eye. We are aware, however, that some of the latest Silicone Hydrogel contact lens materials do not perform as well with these products and new preservative free Multipurpose Solutions have been developed.

Synergi is an advanced, preservative free, Multipurpose solution which consists of cleaning, disinfecting and lubrication agents.

It has many benefits:

  • More comfort on insertion of the lens.
  • Enhances lens comfort throughout the day.
  • Reduces deposit formation on the lens surface.
  • Both the solution and the antimicrobial lens soaking case supplied with Synergi maximises patient safety against bacteria.

Regard

We also stock Regard Multi-purpose contact lens solution which is another revolutionary preservative free product for the disinfecting and cleaning of Silicone Hydrogel lenses.

Refine

A preservative-free peroxide solution. It is an ideal product for the disinfecting and cleaning of Silicone Hydrogel lenses. Refine solution must be used with a suitable lens container which neutralises the peroxide over 6 hours. Refine is not a multipurpose solution and must not be applied directly into the eye or used for rubbing or rinsing contact lenses.
