What is an enzymatic cleaner?
Enzymatic cleaners contain enzymes, which help to break down soils at a neutral pH (typically pH 6-8). There can be various types of enzymes in enzymatic cleaners, such as proteases, amylases, and lipases which break down various types of soils. All types of enzymes belong to a class of compounds called proteins.

Heavy drinking induces microsomal enzyme cytochrome in the liver. Metabolism of this element produces free radicals which may lead to chunking together of proteins in the eye. This then leads to cataract formation or vision loss.
How does protein buildup on contact lenses?
In addition to deactivation, the unfolding exposes previously hidden portions of the protein, causing the denatured protein to bind or attach to other substances. Within the tear film, as lysozyme denatures, it can build up on the surface of contact lenses, forming what we all refer to as protein deposits.
