The Difference Between Multi-Purpose, Preservative Free and Saline Solutions For Contact Lenses

In the realm of contact lens care, choosing the right solution is esssential for maintaining optimal eye health and comfort. There are three common options for contact lenses: Multi-purpose, Preservative-free, and Saline Solutions — each serving distinct purposes.

Let’s explore the nuances that differentiate these solutions and shed light on how Oculus-Curae, a brand committed to quality yet affordable, stands out in this crowded market.

Multi-Purpose Contact Lens Solutions: The all-in-one lens care option

As the name suggests, multi-purpose solutions are versatile formulations designed to clean, disinfect, rinse, and store soft (hydrophilic) contact lenses. They provide a convenient all-in-one approach, simplifying the lens care routine for users.

While effective for daily use individuals with sensitive eyes may find them less suitable due to the presence of certain preservatives. Our Aqua Naina Contact Lens Isotonic Solution offers the added benefit of removing protein deposits daily, to ensure your lenses stay clean and comfortable.

Preservative-Free Contact Lens Solutions: A Gentle Touch for Sensitive Eyes

Preservative-free solutions are specifically tailored for those with sensitive eyes or allergies. These solutions eliminate the need for preservatives, reducing the risk of irritation. However, they may require more frequent use and may come at a higher cost. Our contact lens care products are preservative-free ensuring that you experience optimal safety and comfort.

Saline Solutions For Contact Lenses: The Gentle Rinse

Saline solutions serve primarily as a rinsing agent for contact lenses. They lack the disinfecting properties found in multi-purpose solutions, making them unsuitable as a stand-alone cleaning solution. However, they are indispensable for individuals using heat or hydrogen peroxide systems for lens disinfection.

Our Aqua Naina Sterile Saline Solution is not only preservative-free but also balanced to the same pH as your eye’s natural tears. By mimicking the natural composition of tears, our solution ensures effective cleaning without irritation, guaranteeing your lenses remain clear, comfortable, and safe for extended wear of lenses. The balanced formulation guarantees gentle and effective cleaning, removing dirt, oils, and residues from your soft contact lenses.
