Which soft contact lens solution should you use for your particular lens type? Find the best value soft lens solutions here.
If you wear soft contacts, like the vast majority of contact lens wearers, then you need to use a lens solution compatible with soft lenses; unless of course you use daily disposables, which usually don't require any lens solution at all.
For ease, speed and convenience, the most popular form of lens cleaner is a no rub contact lens solution, like the one I use from Bausch and Lomb called Renu..
All you need to do to keep lenses fresh and clean is pop them in a vial filled with fresh solution every night to let the liquid do its magic and remove any nasty deposits, rinse and disinfect the lenses and, crucially, lubricate them before putting them back in the following morning.
Because my tears produce lots of natural protein deposits, I sometimes rub my lenses gently for a few seconds before putting them in the case each night.
But even with this added step, this type of multipurpose solution is super easy to use and it costs less than £13 for a 3 month supply.
Tip: Renu is now available in FLAT bottles - so much easier to pack in a bag!
The beauty about a multipurpose lens solution is that you can clean and disinfect your soft lenses without having to use additional cleaning products.
Enzymatic cleaners, for instance, are usually not required and they are a pain to use anyway as you have to soak lenses in a separate solution and then wait several hours, usually 4 as a minimum, after having put the lenses back in your normal multipurpose solution, to neutralize the effects of the enzyme cleaner; if not you will cause damage to your eyes, not to mention the pain!
