Colour and clarity of lenses are also unaffected by Combisol. </p><p>Barnes-Hind claim that overnight storage in Combisol is adequate to disinfect hard gas-permeable contact lenses. </p><p>Prior to storage in Combisol, gas-permeable contact lenses must be cleaned with COMBICLEAN* daily cleaner, a nonionic surfactant cleaner which may be applied to both lens surfaces and rubbed with the finger or used in the HYDRA-MAT 11* cleaning device. </p><p>Daily cleaning with Combiclean will enhance lens comfort and prevent lens dry spot deposits, according to Barnes-Hind. After cleaning with Combiclean, lenses must be rinsed thoroughly with water, before storing in Combisol solution. These solutions are not intended for use with soft contact lenses. </p><p>Combisol is presented in 120 ml and Combiclean 25 ml. </p><p>63 </p></li></ul>
