I accidentally used Boston ADVANCE cleaner on my soft

Resolved Question:

I accidentally used Boston ADVANCE cleaner on my soft contacts (I didn't read the fine print about not for use on soft contact lenses... I know shame on me) Is my lenses still safe to use??? I only used it once on them.. Is there something I can do? I wear the extended wear (yearly contacts0 so I can't just throw them away. Any info you can give me would be great. Thanks!

hello there
you will be fine as long as you soak them and cleanse them with your regular contact lens solution prior to use. Remove them immediately if you experience any burning or stinging. There is no need to discard them. Regards *****
