Can you use water as contact solution?
You must not use water instead of contact lens solution, even if it’s bottled or distilled water.
Water alone will not disinfect your contact lenses and you will risk an eye infection.
Not only that, but your contact lenses may stick to your eyes and cause discomfort or blurred vision if you substitute a proper contact lens solution for water.
Do I need contact lens solution?
If you wear reusable contact lenses, a contact lens solution is essential to make sure they’re kept clean.
If you don’t disinfect your reusable contact lenses with a contact lens solution, you will run the risk of developing an eye infection.
If you have daily disposable contact lenses, you should keep a contact lens solution on hand in case you temporarily remove your contacts while resting or washing.
Can I use eye drops with contact lenses?
If you have an eye problem, it’s best to avoid using contact lenses until your condition has improved.
Most eye drops aren’t intended to be used alongside contact lenses, and the application of the lenses may make your condition worse.
If you have an eye infection such as pink eye, allergies or an eye injury, apply the drops to your natural eye and don’t use your lenses afterwards.
If you regularly suffer from dry eyes, you could try Murine Contacts Refresh and Clean which has been formulated to use with contact lenses, helping to moisturise your eyes and clear away any dirt to restore clarity to your vision.
What is contact lens solution made of?
Contact lens solutions are generally made of a saline solution with additional cleaning compounds.
Saline is a mixture of dissolved sodium chloride (salt) and water, with a similar salt and water composition as human blood and tears.
