With the huge variety of contact lenses on the market, you'd expect a variety of care products for looking after your lenses. Whether you use hard lenses or soft lenses, we have the right care product for you at Mister Spex. Correct care of your lenses is essential in order to avoid possible irritation, and to protect your eyes against inflammation and disease in the long term.
More and more often people are turning to soft contact lenses as an alternative to glasses. Advances in lens design mean that wearers can enjoy the benefits of contact lenses without sacrificing comfort. But crystal clear vision and long-lasting comfort require a certain amount of care and the right care product.
You can choose between an “all-in-one” or hydrogen peroxide solution. With the latter a built-in neutraliser is provided, to prevent stinging or injury to your eyes. This neutralisation process last comparatively long – which means the lenses must be left in cleaning solution overnight. Here further cleaning of the surface is essential, because deposits are disinfected but not removed. A saline solution is recommended to remove all traces of deposits. Other types of contact lens cleaning products are known as multipurpose, or all-in-one, solutions. With these solutions the whole process is made a lot easier: cleaning, disinfecting, neutralising, storing and lubricating can all be carried out with just one product!
A common problem with contact lenses is usually protein deposits collecting on the lens surface. These deposits must be carefully removed using a surface cleaning produc. A few drops on the bank of the hand before massaging into the lens is sufficient. Of course, clean your hands thoroughly when taking care of your contact lenses. Rigid and more robust soft contact lenses can also be rubbed with cleaning solution between two fingers, and then rinsed with a saline solution. For those who find cleaning by hand too much bother, special “no rub” solutions are also available.
