Purosol Optical Lens Cleaner

Purosol Optical was originally developed for NASA and the US military for use on high-end multi-coated optics. Combining the power of organic plant extracts and state-of-the-art green chemistry, it is the world’s most advanced cleaning solution.

One spray of Purosol® fine mist followed by a gentle wipe of a Purosol® ultra-fine woven microfiber cloth and your lens emerges crystal clear and free of dirt and dust without streaks or damage to the precision coating on your lens.

What makes this product so different and why NASA and the US Military consider it ideal for cleaning high-end precision coated optics?

It’s all about the precision Green technology used in the Purosol® manufacturing process!

Purosol Green Technology

All natural plant enzymes are combined to change the molecular surface tension which holds dust and dirt to the lens surface.

Taking its cleaning power from nature itself, Purosol Optical is non-toxic, hypoallergenic, nonflammable, sterile and completely biodegradable. It is CFC-free, VOC-free and exceeds EPA and OSHA health and safety standards, as well as exceeding standards set for the EU, Australia, Canada, Japan, and other countries worldwide.

Purosol Optical is Effective

Using the latest in surface chemistry, it breaks the molecular bonds that dust, dirt and grime use to adhere to the lens. Purosol Optical is streak-free and leaves an anti-static barrier which repels dust, meaning you will have to clean your lens less frequently.

Purosol Optical is Safe

Gentle enough for use on all optical and coated lenses, it contains no alcohol, ammonia, detergent, or any other traditional solvent which can damage your expensive coatings. Purosol leaves no residue and is free of silicone, graphite and glycerin.

Purosol Optical is Trusted

Utilized by the US and Canadian militaries, national laboratories, hospitals, research facilities, observatories, and professional photographers. Purosol is trusted on the very best and valuable optical lenses in the world.

Lens cleaner is something I use every day due to the fact that I have approximately $550 worth of eyeglasses perched on my nose. With age comes more and more expensive glasses - I'm up to "high refractive index" lens (to avoid the coke-bottle lens syndrome), progressives (to avoid bi- and tri-focal lines), transition (to darken outside), non-scratch, anti-reflective (cut glare), titanium frames (lightweight). With all this technology perched on my nose, I understandably want to treat these marvels of innovation with care and avoid scratches and damage. To that end, I've used "anti-reflective-coating-safe" cleaners and microfiber cloths for years.

Purosol Molecular Lens Cleaner is impressive...and different from other cleaners. When you first spray it on a lens, you know you're working with a different cleaner from those you pick up at the local vision center. I was surprised to see the spray bead up on the lens; other cleaners may foam slightly and there is evidence of surfactants (the other sprays spread across the lens with no beading). This beading of the Purosol had me concerned at first (no solvent effect of breaking surface tension), but not to worry. The product insert states "Purosol's solvent-free formula used the latest in green chemistry to break the molecular bonds that dust, dirt and grime use to adhere to the lens" and it works beautifully. I ran several tests where, after an active day, and plenty of dust, cooking spatters or high pollen counts, I tried regular solvent-based cleaner on one lens, Purosol on the other.

I purchased a bottle of Purosol Optical cleaner upon the recommendation of a Nikon rep for cleaning my expensive Pro glass. The product works wonders, it removes finger prints, water marks, pollens etc. completely and without streaking. As a few others have mentioned the cloth that is part of the kit can leave lint behind, but I have found that the Kinetronics Panther and Tiger cloths do wonders in combination with Purosol.

Unlike many of the cheaper lens cleaning products Purosol does is *not* solvent based. The solvents in these products run the risk of damaging lens and filter coatings. I was more than happy to find an effective quality cleaner that would not pose a risk to those coatings on expensive lenses and filters.

It's not stated on the Amazon product page or the actual product itself that the Purosol Optical Lens Cleaner can be used for coated lens with. However, after reviews here suggested otherwise, I purchased a 4 oz bottle. For 2 weeks after obtaining a new lens (Transitions Photochromic, Anti-Reflection Coating, Oleophobic Fingerprint Resistant A/R Coating), I cleaned it using nothing but the provided cloth every few days. No streaks or residue remained on the lens; finger-prints didn't attach themselves. As soon as the Purosol bottle arrived, I started using it, and in time, noticed streaks that required multiple cleaning passes after spraying the fluid on the lens. Within a few weeks, the anti-reflective coating was effectively non-existent, finger-resistance coating was completely gone on my lens, and I was left with flares for light sources at night instead of points of light. I now find myself needing to wipe the lens after a couple of hours of use, instead of once every few days.

I believe the product indiscriminately breaks up molecular bonds on the surface of lenses.

Buyer beware: if your lens have any additive coatings, the Purosol Optical Lens cleaner may slowly ruin them.

I purchased a new set of prescription lenses 7 months ago from the same company. I ran an experiment by not using any cleaners except for soap made with organic oils. My new lenses are not scratched. Nonetheless, I cannot say with 100% certainty the Purosol cleaner was the sole cause of the issues 3 years ago. Try it, if you wish. Find out for yourself.

I've been wearing (and cleaning) eyeglasses for almost 50 years. When I read the reviews on Purosol Optical Lens Cleaner, I got excited and ordered a bottle for my home and one for my office.

I have high-index plastic lenses, which I think are pretty common these days. I tried using the cleaner with a lint-free microfiber cloth, with a clean cotton t-shirt and even with Kimtech lint-free Kimwipes. No matter what I did or how many times I cleaned the lenses, the cleaner left behind a noticable film. One other reviewer talks about having to "buff" his lenses to get the streaks off. That does eventually seem to work, but what an effort it takes.

Finally, I thought maybe there was some residue from a previous cleaner that Purosol couldn't remove, so I tried washing my lenses in soap and warm water first. When I dried them, they were crystal-clear. When I subsequently cleaned them with Purosol, the film came back.

Thinking perhaps it was the type of plastic my eyeglass lenses are made of, I decided to try cleaning my laptop display. Purosol didn't remove all the smudges AND it left streaks.

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong that gives me totally different results than others are reporting, but I can't imagine what it is. Needless to say, given how expensive this stuff is, I'm sending it back.
