Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Which Solution is Used to Clean Contact Case?

A: Multipurpose solution is the all-in-one solution that can be used to rinse, clean, and disinfect your case just like your lenses. Saline solution can only be used to rinse, but doesn’t disinfect.

Q: How Often to Replace Contact Lens Case?

A: Contact lens cases need to be replaced at least once every three months. Microorganisms can build up on your contact lens case and create a biofilm where bacteria can hide and avoid being disinfected. This will happen even with the correct care, and it won’t be visible to the naked eye.

Q: Can I Rinse My Contact Lens Case with Water?

A: While there aren’t any negative effects to rinsing your contact lens case with water, the case won’t be properly cleaned or disinfected.
