Contact Lens Solution

Jul 22, 2008
Contact lens wearers throughout the United States and around the world are being diagnosed with an extremely painful and potentially detrimental eye fungus, called fusarium keratitis. The FDA and the CDC recently announced an investigation into the occurrence of this rare fungal infection, detected in an alarming number of soft contact lens wearers using Bausch & Lomb's ReNu contact lens solution. As of April 24, 2006, reports stated that the number of confirmed or suspected cases of the eye fungus had grown to one hundred seventy-six.

Cleaning is an important step that removes dirt, oil and mucus from the lens surface, as well as protein deposits and bacteria. If any one of these factors is not adequately addressed in your contact lens cleaning system, you will end up with sore, irritated eyes.

There used to be multiple steps involved in caring for your lenses, but with a solution made for all steps, cleaning your contact lenses has become much easier. Gone are the days of soaping up your contacts before rinsing and storing them for the night. The all-steps solution will be able to help you do all the steps of cleaning, rinsing, disinfecting and storing.

Using a multipurpose solution, remove your contact lens and put it in the palm of your hand. Apply a several drops of the solution and rub for several seconds. Last, add more solution to the lens to rinse away. Fill you contact lens case with solution and store them until you're ready to wear them again.

Generally adverse reactions to lens cleaners are caused by the preservatives they contain, but also how you handle your lenses while inserting them plays a part. You should put your contacts in BEFORE applying makeup or hairspray or using any hand lotions.

Complete contact lens solutions such as Healthy Eyes Multi Purpose Solution contains a natural formulation with natural plant substrates. The online retailer, Coastal Contacts states that it creates a "comfort cushion" around your contact lenses, making insertion noticeably more comfortable. Other complete solutions include AquaRefresh Multi-Purpose Solution, Renu Multiplus Solution from Bausch & Lomb. Peroxide-based cleaners include AOSEPT Clear Care.
