Did you know? You can use your Contact Lens Solution to Clean your Artificial Eye?
There are many ways to clean your Artificial Eye, and one of them is by using your Contact Lens Solution. Throughout your wearing time, our eye socket (just like our original eye) also produce tears and mucous discharge that will eventually harden and makes wearing the prosthesis uncomfortable.
A Contact Lens solution does not only cleans and disinfects your Prosthesis, but also removes protein build ups.
A specific type of Contact Lens Solution would be those used by Hard Contact Lenses. Aside from Cleaning, Rinsing and Disinfecting the Artificial Eye, it also provides a slippery surface upon insertion of the Ocular Prosthesis, which I find a lot of users more relieved.
I usually advice my patients to soak their Prosthetic Eyes for at least 30 minutes, twice or thrice a week. (e.g. Soak it in the solution while taking a bath). Or just simply rinse the Prosthetic Eye itself. It's a better alternative than using TAP WATER to clean the Artificial Eye.
But this does not substitute the Yearly Professional Polishing and Cleaning of Your Prosthetic Eye.
