Default Protein build up on contacts

Even though he cleaned his contacts faithfully my brother ended up with GPC and they said it was from protein build up on the lenses. How do you tell if there is protein build up on your lenses and how do you prevent it if regular cleaning does not help? -Thank you for your advice.

Protein build up will appear as little bumps or a white flakey looking area on a contact.
Replacing contacts regularly will usually prevent build up but some people have a lot of protein in their tears and need to try a variety of cleaners and contacts to come up with one that works best for them. There are enzymatic cleaners still available for helping prevent protein build up.

Ok, great. Well it is nice to know that there is a way to take care of that build up. I was worried that if you did there was nothing to do about it but buy new lenses.
