Cleaning Contact Lenses

 Like spectacles, contact lenses will not last forever, especially when worn and handled regularly. They are affected by natural secretions in the eye, which you cannot control. They can also become damaged if not cleaned properly or regularly. Surface damage or dirt on lenses is not always visible to the naked eye.

Regular use of cleaning and disinfecting solutions as advised by your Opticians helps to prolong the life of new lenses and keep your eyes healthy and free of discomfort.

We supply many leading names in cleaning systems and solutions.The correct care regime for your contact lenses will be advised by the optician and depends on the type of lens you wear.
