Contact solution + cold = ouch

Posted by rdub in Life, Trip Reports

Any of my loyal (5) readers who wear contacts and go backpacking (now we’re down to 1 – me).

Note to self: AO-Sept style solution (that’s hydrogen peroxide + titanium disc) does not work in the cold. The chemical reaction of Ti + H202 reaction requires heat to progress in the 6 hours overnight time. In the absence of heat, placing those soaked contact lenses in your eyes will induce an INCREDIBLE burning sensation that will not stop until the eyes are flushed.

Ouch, that hurt! Saline solution for me next time.
