Step by Step guideline on How To Clean Crizal Lenses
Step 1: Get a lens container that is specifically designed for contact lenses, but whatever you can find as long as it has a lid and it’s clean is fine.
Step 2: Get a good quality lens cleaning solution to say like Ciba vision cleaner (the company that makes Crizal)
Step 3: Get a good microfiber cloth that can be used to clean glasses, sunglasses, camera lenses, and so on.
Step 4: Mix the solution with water in the lens container (the amount of water depends on how deep you want your solution)
Step 5: Soak one side of your microfiber cloth with the solution and leave it on a flat surface.
Step 6: Soak the other side of your microfiber cloth with water placed on top of the soaked cloth.
Step 7: Put on some safety goggles before you begin cleaning the lens, as the chemicals in this solution will make your eyes sting for a little while if it comes in contact with them,
Step 8: Put on some gloves (the usual pair of latex household gloves will do) before you begin cleaning your lenses, this is for protection for lenses.
Just rinse the Crizal lense under running water until it looks like new. And wipe dry the lens using your microfiber cloth.
Crizal Lenses Cleaning Tips And Tricsk
– always use the same side of the microfiber cloth to wipe and rinse your lens,
– never reuse one side of the cloth for rinsing and another for wiping.
– avoid putting an excess solution on the lenses as it will help in spreading dirt rather than cleaning. (if there is excess dirt place a drop of solution on the lenses and rub with cloth or finger)
– avoid rubbing hard, just gently wipe your lens with a microfiber cloth.
– if you have “Crizal all day” which is an anti-fog coating they suggest not to use this method of cleaning, but my optometrist said that I can do it as long as I avoid the anti-fog side of the lens (when you look through the lenses they will appear like a mirror when looking through it from above but clear when looking through them from below)
– if your lens looks very smudged and dirty you can soak them overnight in solution with a microfiber cloth, or add some baking soda to the solution before soaking them.
– if your lens is not very dirty you can just soak them for a little while in solution with a microfiber cloth.
-if you have dirt that won’t come off rinse the lenses again under running water and rub off the dirt by finger or microfiber cloth (this method only applies to lenses that have dirt that won’t come off just by rinsing)

Most people will try to use store-bought lens wipes which contain alcohol as the main ingredient is highly flammable and can easily explode if put in contact with a naked flame, This is majorly dangerous as the wipe could catch fire which could result in injuries. If you do insist on cleaning your lenses its best to use a lens solution that is made especially for contact lenses, these types of solutions contain chemicals that will help in removing the dirt and grease
