Lens Fluid: What do you need to watch out for?
Your eyes are precious to you. Because what if you were to lose your sight? If you wear lenses, it is important that you take good care of them. This way you prevent infections and enjoy longer wearing pleasure of your contact lenses. One of the things you need to take good care of your lenses is lens fluid. But what exactly do you have to watch out for when you order lens fluid? We'll give you an overview.
Different types of lens fluid
You might think: lens fluid is lens fluid. But nothing could be further from the truth. Because just as there are many types of contact lenses for sale, there are also many types of lens liquid available. Consider, for example:
- Multi-purpose lens solution. This is used for soft lenses that are made of hydrogel or silicone hydrogel. Multi-purpose lens fluid is an all-in-one fluid that you can use for multiple purposes - for cleaning daily, weekly or monthly lenses, but also for storing your contact lenses.
- Lens fluid specially designed for hard lenses. This lens fluid is gas permeable, which is important when cleaning, disinfecting and storing your hard lenses.
- Dry eyes require extra care from your contact lenses. That's why special lens fluid is also available for use with lenses for sensitive eyes.
As you can see, you have several choices when ordering lens fluid. Whatever you do, don't just keep your contact lenses in water. This can affect hard and soft lenses and can have harmful effects on the health of your eyes. If you are going to wear your lenses, always choose the right lens fluid to clean your lenses and store them in.
What is the function of lens fluid?
Lens fluid has several functions. When you wear daily lenses, throw them away at the end of the day in the plastic waste bin. However, it is still a good idea to always have a bottle of lens fluid on hand for your daily lenses. This allows you to clean your lenses during the day, so that you can continue to experience optimum hygiene and wearing comfort.
When you wear weekly or monthly lenses, you also need lens fluid to disinfect and store your contact lenses. If you keep your lenses in your lens box for several days at a time, then make sure you change the lens fluid every day! This fluid becomes a source of bacteria the longer your lenses are in it, and that increases the chance of an infection to your eyes.
