FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does the Compliance/Travel Kit contain contact lenses?

Do you have information about soft or hard contact lenses?
As manufacturers of contact lens solutions, we are unable to fully advise you about anything but solutions. You should consult with your contact lens fitting professional.
Do you provide enzymatic cleaner?
No, because we believe that they are not needed unless the front surface of your lens is compromised by scratching, etc. If they are scratched, it is best to replace them or consult with your eye-care professional.
Does the Optimum by Lobob™ Extra Strength Cleaner need to be used daily?
It depends a lot on how clean your lenses stay with the use of the C/D/S (Optimum by Lobob® Cleaning/Disinfecting/Storage). If you are a heavy mucus producer, we recommend using the ESC three to four times per week.

According to studies conducted by the lens manufacturer, the Optimum CDS is compatible with the Hydra-PEG coated lenses. However, always seek the advise of your contact lens fitter to ensure compliance with recommended solutions. Additionally, the Optimum CDS MUST be rinsed completely with recommended rinsing solution. DO NOT PUT CDS SOLUTION DIRECTLY IN THE EYE.

Why are Lobob solutions overpriced on Amazon, eBay, etc?
Lobob is NOT affiliated with any Amazon or eBay re-sellers. Re-sellers are price gouging our products to take advantage of our customers who are looking for solutions. We do not support such malpractice. Please report any websites that are price gouging our solutions by emailing us a direct link to: email@example.com
Why were the Lobob Hard Sterile Solutions and Sof/Pro 2 discontinued?
Due to low popularity and demand for the solutions over the years, we found ourselves discarding excess stock. As a result, we decided to discontinue these solutions. A direct substitute for the Hard Sterile Solutions are our Optimum by Lobob products, which can be found on our home page. We strongly suggest to seek advice from your eye care professional to explore alternate solutions you can use with your soft contact lenses.
I can't find Lobob Solutions. What is going on, where can I buy, and what should I do?
What is happening: Unfortunately, our contract manufacturer has temporarily stopped production of our solutions due to a backorder issue, which is why our products are hard to find in stores. Our manufacturer has not given us a time frame for when to expect a restock nor do we have any idea as this situation is completely out of our control.
