• What type of contact solution is best for people with astigmatism?


    Question:

    What type of contact solution is better for people with astigmatism: multi-purpose “no rub” solution or hydrogen peroxide solution systems?


    Answer:

    The type of refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) that one has makes no difference as to which contact lens solution is best for an individual. If you have been using a specific solution with no adverse effects such as irritation, redness, burning or stinging then its best to continue with that. If you are new to contact lenses then it is best to use the solution recommended by the doctor that fit your contact lenses.
