Abstract

Contact lens care solutions are necessary for proper hygiene of contact lenses. Numerous microorganisms can be transmitted through them, leading to serious eye infections, while blindness can occur in particularly severe cases. A direct link between ocular infections and contact lens care solutions has been proven. Commercial preparations must meet a number of safety and antimicrobial efficacy requirements. This paper presents examinations of antimicrobial efficacy of commercial preparation called LENS CARE. The examinations were carried out according to ISO 14729:2012 standard Stand-alone test. It has been found that commercial preparation LENS CARE within proscribed contact lens care regimen of 8h meets the primary criteria of the Stand-alone test for Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans with the results of 3.4, 3.6 and 1.0 log10 reductions, respectively. If used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, the tested preparation has the desired antimicrobial effect against the tested pathogens.
