neutralization

1. A technique for determining the power of an ophthalmic lens. It is accomplished by placing a lens of known power and opposite sign in contact with the unknown lens and moved back and forth in a plane perpendicular to the line of sight until the observation of movement (against or with) of the distant image seen through the lenses disappear. The unknown lens will have the opposite power to that which neutralizes this apparent movement. 2. A method of breaking down hydrogen peroxide from a contact lens (mostly soft) following contact lens disinfection to avoid possible irritation to ocular tissues. This can be achieved by rinsing and dilution with saline, by using a solution with an enzyme catalase or a platinum disc incorporated into the lens case, or with a chemical agent such as sodium pyruvate or sodium thiosulfate. See disinfection; focimeter.
