Can I use a different contact lens solution from that recommended by an optician?


Always ask your optician's advice. Different solutions are designed for different purposes and for particular lens types.

For example, two disinfecting solutions may have completely different ingredients and whereas one may leave your lenses ready for insertion, another may require neutralising before you insert your lenses.

If in doubt, always follow the advice of a qualified optician.
