Cleaning, soaking and wetting are the three most common objetives listed on the labels of rigid lens care solutions. Debate however, still persists over wether combinations solutions (aimed at doing two or more simultaneously) are really just care step compromises, versus whether single purpose solutions (the purist apprach) are truly worth the compliance risks that multiple steps can invite.

While the patient clearly represents the least predictable variable in the use of such solutions, products through their distinctive formulation philosophies can represent, as well markedly different approaches to the same problem, or intended mission. Our purpose here is to look at some of the differences which are not commonly listed on labels, among sveral products intended for rigid lens care.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
