Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lens maintenance and care regimes are crucial for minimising infection risk and ensuring long term, healthy, comfortable lens wear. This is especially true given the increased uptake of overnight lens wear in children being treated with orthokeratology for myopia control. Patients are presented with a myriad of contact lens cleaning options in pharmacies and online; it is thus up to the optometrist to prescribe and reiterate the importance of using a particular solution over another.
