    Daily wear of contact lenses would result in protein deposits that build-up over time. It would make the contacts less comfortable and reduce life span, even cause eye infections. Firstly, you should consult about what type of cleaning solutions are best for your contact lenses. And you wash hands before removing your contact lenses from your eyes. Then, you place one of the lenses in the palm of your clean hand, and squirt the cleaning solution onto the lenses. In the following, you should rub the contact lenses in a circular motion with your fingertip for 20 to 30 seconds. You should avoid your nails to tear the lens accidentally. After that, you rinse the lenses with the solution to wash away any loosened debris, and store the lenses in clean cases with new solution.

    Existing protein on contact lenses are possible to undertake chemical reaction in dry eyes and acid tear. If so, it will harden, deform the lenses or change the parameters of lenses. The worst it may lead to is attracting other things to adhere to the lenses so as to arouse eye inflammation. Protein decomposer is usually used to solve the problem. Dissolve some decomposer in multi-purpose solutions. Soak the contact lenses in it for about two hours. You can shorten or lengthen the soaking time according to the amount of protein. Then disinfect the lenses with solutions. If you need to wear the lenses soon, soak it in the solution for one or two hours. You can get multi-purpose solutions for contacts in eyeglasses stores. When you don't have it at hand, it can be replaced by mild salty water. Additionally, you can use hydrogen peroxide to clean the lenses through every one or two months.
