Hard Contact Solutions

 –  Also known as rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses, hard contact lenses are often prescribed by eye doctors for the crisp, clear vision they can provide. When cared for properly, these lenses may end up being more affordable than soft contact lenses because a single pair can be worn for a year or longer. Here at drugstore.com, we have a wide array of hard contact solutions that can be used to keep these lenses healthy and comfortable through cleaning, disinfecting, rewetting, conditioning, and more.

Safely Caring for Hard Contact Lenses



It's important to care for your hard contact lenses correctly in order to extend their life and maintain proper hygiene. Hard contact lenses should be taken out each night for regular cleaning and stored in a solution that is specifically designed for them. Never use products made for soft contacts on hard lenses, and vice versa.

You should always wash your hands before handling contact lenses to avoid infection. It's also a good idea to keep water away from lenses and replace your case and solution according to the product directions. Talk to your eye doctor if you have any discomfort related to your hard contact lenses.

Types of Hard Contact Solutions



Different types of hard contact solutions serve different purposes. Cleansing solutions are specifically formulated to remove protein from your contact lenses to make vision clearer. You might also have a separate solution for disinfecting contacts and storing them overnight.

A third type of solution can be carried around with you throughout the day and should be used for rewetting contacts if they get too dry in your eyes. Sometimes, these three different products are combined into a single multipurpose solution that can be used for cleaning, disinfecting, storing, and rewetting lenses.

Another type of product that is unique to hard contact lenses is conditioning solution. Since these lenses are made from rigid materials, it can take a while to get used to the feel of them in your eyes. Conditioning solutions help provide adequate lubrication to reduce friction between the lenses and your eyes. This may help them feel more comfortable more quickly.
