How to care for retainer lenses with Clear Care Solution


How to Disinfect Your Lenses

  1. First, discard any left over solution in the case.  Clean the case with water; allow case to air dry when not used.  To avoid mixing the lenses, always clean one lens at a time. 
  2. To clean your lenses if it falls on the floor or counter etc., place one lens in the palm of your hand and fill with Simplus.
  3. Place your finger inside the lens and rub around your palm in circular motions for 30 seconds.  That is how to clean the “outside” of the lens.   
  4. To clean the “inside”, take the same finger and rub it along the “inside” of the lens.  Move your finger along the inside of the lens for 30 seconds. 
  5. Place the disinfected lens into case and completely cover it with Simplus Solution.  Securely close the case and repeat steps 1-3 with your other lens.
