2. Monthly Reusable Lenses:

Monthly reusable lenses are designed as part of a 3 month supply and require a cleaning and storage system.

Typically a 3 month supply of lenses consists of :

  • 3 x  pairs of lenses ( 3 right & 3 left)
  • 3 x  lens cases for storage
  • 3 x  bottles of multi-purpose solution

Because these lenses are designed to be reused for up to 30 days  they require a solution for cleaning and storage. The solutions are used to clean, disinfect and maintain the moisture of the lenses.

 

3. Two Weekly Reusable Lenses :

Two weekly reusable lenses are specific to Johnson & Johnson Acuvue Range and are also designed as part of a 3 month supply and require a cleaning and storage system.

Typically a 3 month supply of lenses consists of :

  • 6 x  pairs of lenses ( 6 right & 6 left)
  • 3 x  lens cases for storage
  • 3 x  bottles of multi-purpose solution

Because these lenses are designed to be reused for up to 15 days  they require a solution for cleaning and storage. The solutions are used to clean, disinfect and maintain the moisture of the lenses.

Best Practice Advice:

In order to maintain the hygiene & comfort of your lenses it is recommended by manufacturers and ICLS that your reusable lenses are disposed of as indicated on the packaging – ie. after 15 days or 30 days depending on the lens type.

 In addition, each contact lens container and bottle of solution  should be disposed of after 30 days.

Using solutions after their use by date increases your risk of infection as the efficacy of the solution is not sufficient after 30 days to kill potential bacteria and prevent protein deposit build up on the lens.

Lens cases harbor microbes that build up and also increase your risk of infection
