How to maintain contact lenses


Following the correct hygiene procedures is crucial to maximizing successful and safe lens wear. Most contact lenses need to be cleaned, disinfected and stored with solutions in order to provide optimal performance.

The aim of the disinfecting and cleaning solutions is to reduce the number of microorganisms and other substances found naturally in our tears that accumulate on the lenses with wear, therefore minimizing the risk of infection with contact lenses. Taking proper care of contact lenses will increase the comfort and lifetime of lenses and keep lens-wearing experience pleasant and worry-free.
