Use Of Soft Lens Disinfectant For Eye Drops?
Good afternoon, I want to ask whether the disinfectant liquid for soft lenses can be used as a substitute for eye drops? And what will the effect be if you use a disinfectant instead of eye drops? R nThank you
For sterilization or disinfection, it is necessary to pay attention to the object to be sterilized. So that sterilization of inanimate objects and sterilization of living objects have several different points.
For the term, sterilization of inanimate objects is known as a disinfectant. Meanwhile, living things are known as antiseptics. Likewise with the materials used. The use of antiseptic ingredients must be safe for use by living things, whether it is safe for the skin, eyes, or for wounds. Therefore, the disinfectant material will be different from the antiseptic for the purpose and dosage and technique used.
Likewise with drugs used for contact lenses, this drug cannot be used for the treatment of eye diseases, because it does not include the purpose and the risks.
So, if you have complaints with your eyes, then you should be able to consult directly with your family doctor or your eye doctor.
That is the information we can convey.
