This study will focus on comparing the antimicrobial efficacy of the two contact lens solution: Multipurpose solution and Hydrogen Peroxide-based solution, against gram-positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus. The solutions will be collected in an optical shop inside a shopping mall in Dasmariñas City. The procedure will be done in Angelo King Medical and Research Center with the supervision of the laboratory supervisors and research adviser. The antimicrobial activity of contact lens solutions will be identified based on their zones of inhibition. The study will not focus on identifying the chemical compounds present in the solutions that may have contributed to its antimicrobial activity. Furthermore, the study will only focus on generating possible antimicrobial agents to resolve the issue of multidrug resistant bacteria present in contact lenses.
