As optometrists we’re generally aware of the many benefits of using a hydrogen peroxide lens care system – good disinfection efficacy, effective protein removal, and they are preservative free. Despite these positives, the prescribing trends in Australia still lean heavily towards multi-purpose solutions (MPS). In 2018, 87% of reusable soft contact lens (CL) fits were prescribed a MPS4 – this means that 13% or less were prescribed a peroxide lens care system. The proportion is even larger globally, with 92% of reusable soft CL fits being prescribed a MPS.
