Never to late to try a new solution!
on December 9, 2016
I have tried many different types of contact lens solutions, and living in Las Vegas where it's dry, with fine dust particles constantly blowing into my eyes, keeping eyes lubricated is a daily task nevermind my contact lens. Being new to wearing glasses and then choosing to use contact lenses, actually one lens, later in life, I'm ultra picky. I wear an Acuvue Vita monthly lens, which may mean something to most when choosing your solution. I've tried every brand, and every different type in each brand of contact lens solutions to base my findings.
I gave each solution at least a 2 week trial period, unless it burned my eye. I tested each solution by taking out my lens each night, following directions exactly. In addition, after 1 week of usage, I would soak my lens for 2 nights, alternating 2 lenses in the test (I only wear one lens at a time), to see if it was beneficial would make my lens more comfortable if it soaked longer, as some products did better is they soaked for over 24 hours. I found that there was only a minimal increase in comfort as it appeared that my lens had felt more "cushy" and moist when it soaked for 24 hours.
The OPTI-FREE RepleniSH was the easiest to use. I didn't have to rub my lens to clean & disinfect, therefore it had no chance of tearing. The solution doesn't require it. I'm writing this after using this solution after 6 months now and I have never had to rub my contact lens to clean it.
The OPTI-FREE RepleniSH gave me the most moisture in my lens. That's just my opinion. Everyone's eyes are different, and everyone's eye shape is different, and I know my friends like another solution on the east coast. (I just think they haven't tried this one). This solution also doesn't burn my eye. I tend to have dry eyes, and I put a drop on my lens prior to placing in my eye without any irratation. I found it can be used as drops when I don't have them, as I keep a 2 oz bottle in my car if I want to remove my lens and switch to glasses after a long day and don't want to drive in the dark with my mono lens. Again, it's all about comfort.
The OPTI-FREE RepleniSH has lubricating eye drops for contact lenses that I usually carry in my purse and car. I use them in both eyes and its a great extra accessory item to have. As mentioned above, I found that the product doesn't burn and I've used it in a pinch to lubricate my eye and also in my lens for comfort prior to placing it in my eye.
Again, like any product, its personal - some will like it, others will love it, and some will pass on it. My suggestion, try a small bottle that won't break your bank. Hopefully you won't be disappointed.
I am just a regular consumer who loves this product and has not been contacted by the company, I have no affiliation with the company, or anyone in the industry. When I like something, I like to share. Happy shopping!
