Contact Lens Solutions

Many contact lens solutions, like those listed below, are labeled multi-purpose because they're useful for storing, cleaning, and rinsing lenses—as opposed to saline solutions, which are only meant to clear away calcium and debris. If you're experiencing dry or itchy eyes, check out artificial tears and ophthalmic lubricants.
