How to Make Your Own Contact Lens Solution at Home


Are you tired of constantly having to buy expensive contact lens solution? Well, the good news is that you can make your own solution at home! Not only is it cost-effective, but it’s also easy and fun to do. Here’s how to get started.

Gather your ingredients

The first thing you’ll need to do is gather your ingredients. You’ll need:

– Distilled water
– Salt
– Baking soda
– Contact lens case
– Measuring spoons

Measure your ingredients

Next, you’ll need to measure out your ingredients. Start by adding one cup of distilled water to a clean container. Next, add half a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of baking soda to the water. Mix well until the salt and baking soda have dissolved.

Transfer to your contact lens case

Now that you’ve mixed your solution, it’s time to transfer it to your contact lens case. Using a clean dropper or funnel, carefully fill each side of your case with the solution. Be sure to fill it enough to cover the lens completely.

Using your solution

Congratulations, you’ve made your very own contact lens solution! Now, to use it, simply place your lenses in the solution and let them soak for at least 4 hours. When you’re ready to wear them, rinse them with the solution again and place them in your eyes as you normally would.


Making your own contact lens solution is not only easy and fun, but it can also save you money in the long run. Just be sure to follow the recipe carefully and use clean, fresh ingredients. Happy lens-wearing!
