Learn more about AquaClear Multi-Purpose Solution


Question: How soon after I disinfect my contact lenses can I wear them again?

Answer: Soak for at least 6 hours for disinfection, cleaning, protein removal and conditioning. Following disinfection, rinse each side of the lens with fresh AquaClear™ Multi-Purpose Solution prior to insertion.


Question: Can I store my contact lenses in water?

Answer: No, only use fresh AquaClear™ Multi-Purpose Solution each time you soak (store) your lenses. Failure to do so may lead to severe infection, vision loss or blindness.


Question: Can I re-use the solution left in the case or top it off with new solution?

Answer: No, failure to discard solution from the case after each use may lead to inadequate disinfection potentially resulting in eye injury and loss of vision.


Question: Can I store my contact lenses in saline solution?

Answer: If you are not wearing the contact lenses immediately, store in a clean lens case, in AquaClear™ Multi-Purpose Solution with the lens caps securely fastened. Do not store your lenses in ordinary saline in the place of AquaClear™ Multi-Purpose Solution. Saline solution will not disinfect contact lenses.
