What are contact lens solutions?
Contact lens solutions are formulas which have been designed to keep your contact lenses clean and comfortable. All monthly and two weekly contact lenses require cleaning and storing in a contact lens case with solution overnight. Contact lens solutions are designed to disinfect and clean your lenses to ensure they are free from bacteria and debris. They are an essential part of a lens care routine and will provide you with optimal hygiene and a safe lens-wearing experience. There are different types of contact lens solutions to suit the different types of lenses. Different solutions can be used in different ways.
We stock a wide selection of cheap contact lens solutions that will suit your needs. This means that you can find the ideal lens solution for you and your contact lenses.

Our most popular lens solutions
Our most popular lens solutions are listed below:
This multi-purpose solution is popular due to its carefully formulated solution which contains a natural lubricant called hyaluronate. Hyaluronate leaves your contact lenses perfectly clean and moisturised to ensure clear and comfortable vision all day. It also protects your eyes from irritation often triggered by dirt, debris, and dry eyes.
This popular solution can be purchased as a standard size or triple pack.
Our Biotrue Multi-Purpose Solution Twin Pack is rated as an excellent product time and time again by customers old and new. This contact solution will ensure your lenses retain a freshness by giving them a thorough clean. Great for sensitive eyes, the solution has a pH that matches that of healthy tears.
This rigid gas permeable solution was developed by AMO and is popular for minimising the risk of protein build-up on the lenses. This solution also ensures that RGP lenses are rehydrated overnight so that they feel fresh and moist throughout the next day.
Popular for its versatility and unique formula for sensitive eyes, the Lens Plus Solution Value Pack is a saline solution, suitable for use with soft or rigid gas permeable, monthlies or two weekly lenses. It is ideal for those who frequently experience dry and gritty eyes due to its formula which is at balance with your natural tears.
This popular multi-purpose solution features TearGlyde technology to rehydrate your contact lenses by adding a layer of moisture to the surface. Coupled with a gentle HydraGlyde Moisture Matrix formula, this solution is also popular due to its compatibility with sensitive eyes. It also provides convenience as it requires no separate enzyme cleaner to clean your lenses and no rubbing is required.
With its hypoallergenic, 'no rub' formula, EasySept Solution is among our most popular lens solutions. It is excellent for sensitive eyes and perfectly suited for those that suffer from allergies triggered by some of the substances used in other contact lens solutions. It is also available in smaller packs as EasySept one month supply.
Types of contact lens solution
Compatible with every soft contact lens, including lenses made from silicone hydrogel, multi-purpose solutions are a highly convenient choice when it comes to cleaning, disinfecting, storing and rinsing your contact lenses.
You can rely on one bottle of multi-purpose solution to look after your monthly or two weekly contact lenses, eliminating the need to splash out on multiple products. Some of our most popular multi-purpose solutions include ReNu Multi-Purpose Solution, Complete RevitaLens and comfi All-in-One Solution.
Saline solutions and contact lens cleaners should be used in conjunction with each other to help you maintain an effective contact lens cleaning routine.
Contact lens cleaners achieve a thorough clean and disinfection of your contact lenses, removing dirt, protein or lipid build-up from your lenses. Try Oté Clean from Oté Optics, the perfect deep clean solution for sensitive eyes with minimal irritation. Saline solutions are used for rinsing, and storing your lenses, leaving them feeling fresh and comfortable to wear. Saline solutions are also important at this stage to ensure the lenses are free from any remaining cleaner or disinfecting solution after being disinfected. Our most popular saline solutions include, Lens Plus and Sensitive Eyes Plus.
Hydrogen peroxide solutions will thoroughly clean and disinfect your contact lenses. A preservative-free formula makes hydrogen peroxide solution suitable for dry and sensitive eyes.
You can even use them to store contacts; however, the lenses then require neutralisation before they’re suitable for wear. Some hydrogen peroxide solution holders contain a built-in neutraliser that turns the solution into water. An alternative choice is to use a two-step cleaning solution, meaning you’ll need to add a neutralising tablet to the solution and lens after disinfection.
Feel Good Contacts are delighted to stock some of the UK’s best-selling hydrogen peroxide solutions, including AOsept and Oxysept.
Rigid gas permeable (RPG) and hard contact lenses are different to soft contact lenses in that they typically don’t contain water and offer a thicker, yet breathable, structure.
As a result, RGP lenses require a different type of contact lens solution than soft contact lenses, to ensure they’re hygienic, hydrated and safe to wear each day.
Gas permeable solutions such as the Blink Total Care and Boston ranges work to re-wet your lenses and remove deposits after a day’s wear, keeping them fresh and comfortable to wear the next day.
Which contact lens solution is the best?
This will entirely depend on what you require for your contact lenses and your desired maintenance routine. A multi-purpose or saline solution would be ideal for putting soft lenses in every evening after a day's wear. Contact lens cleaners, hydrogen peroxide and RGP solutions are better for a deep clean or a specific type of lens.
We stock a huge selection of contact lens solution, providing multi-purpose solutions, saline solutions, contact lens cleaners, hydrogen peroxide solutions and rigid gas permeable contact lens solutions.
