Hey

To clean contact lenses, you need contact lens cleaning solution and a contact case. Take your contact out and squeeze some of the solution on it and rub each side gently for 5 seconds and put it in the case. Make sure you fill the case 3/4 of the way with solution. Here is a link to a brand of solution. http://online.wsj.com/media/alcon_ar...0407075536.jpg
Here is a link to what a contact case looks like.

Never ever ever put soap on your contact lenses. That is harsh on them and any residue of soap left on them could severely irritate your eyes.

I hope this helped.
Take care,
Kitty.

Only use soap when you're WASHING YOUR HANDS...otherwise it will make your eyes sting and burn really bad.

Just to throw it in there, make sure you get ALL of the water off and dry it thoroughly, because normal water can really damage contact lenses!

Guys she wanted to know how to clean the case, not the lenses.

I just use reallllllllly hot water, and my hands. And then I let it air dry.

It might make life easier if you buy another one, because then you can use the second one if you need to, while cleaning the first.

From a contact lens user:

I was told to use my lens solution, then let it dry, like Myss.
And actually, you are supposed to buy a new one ever so often. Like, every 3 months or every month. I forget.
