Default Avaira and Clear Care

Many people use a solution called "Clear Care" to clean their contact lenses. I wonder if anyone out there can tell me how well this solution works for cleaning Avaira contact lenses in particular? Have you used other brands so that you can compare?

Hello,

I use Clear Care to clean my trial pair of Avaira's and it's gets them shiny and clean! It does a good job of removing protien deposits and other allergens. I also use AoSept (or something like that and it's made by clear care), but I prefer the Clear Care. My hubby loves the target brand solution (with basket), but I haven't tried that yet. I'll stick to my tried and true clear care! For daily soaking & cleaning I love Opti-free (I think it's the replenish). I also use B&L Sensitive eyes saline too for soaking after removing my lenses from the clear care.

Thank you for sharing your contact lens cleaning routine. I've never heard using one brand for day-to-day cleaning and something else for other things. Do you get out the Clear Care when you've got a lot of protein deposits?

I guess let me clarify that! I use the Opti-free replenish on a daily basis for normal cleaning/soaking. After they've soaked, I drain the opti-free and soak them in the B&L sensitive eyes saline. My eyes are very sensitive, and the B&L just helps out with less irritation during insertion. I use the Clear Care about every 3-4 days to wash away protien deposits/allergens/pollen/ect. The CLear Care, imo, is wonderful for removing deposits/allergens/pollen and especially dust (I live in a dust bowl, lol). However, when I take them out of the basket, I still use the B&L for extra rinsing.

I used to not do this, but ever since my experience with the acuvue oasys, it's become a habit to ensure that there are no allergens, dust, pollen, protein deposits on my lenses. If my lenses have anything on them, my eyes tear up right away and my contacts will pop out when I squint. So, being a severe allergy sufferer (who hasn't found a decent and affordable daily contact), I do this with all contacts that are weekly and monthly. It helps prevent excessive build up so I can see without the lenses being murky/cloudy and irritating my eyes. I admit i'm a lil OCD about it

Thanks for explaining that redraidermommy. (When I see that name I picture a woman surrounded by little red children running around. The Red Raiders is a sports team though, right?)

Don't worry about being OCD. I'm more concerned about the really careless people on this forum who wave off all that cleaning-your-contacts stuff and just live free. I'm afraid others will imitate their attitude and end up with a real disaster.
So you keep on keeping on with your OCD contact lens cleaning ways. More power to you.

Yes, Red Raiders is a college sports team....Texas Tech University..does the name Mike Leachor Bobby Knight ring a bell? I graduated from Tech so i'm a redraidermommy (and thank goodness my kids aren't run, but I do wish they would slow down a bit...they run me ragged)

I will definitely keep on with my OCD lens cleaning regimen! Once you really see what deposits look like on your lens (grossss) it kind of makes ya ocd about it!

Thanks for letting us get to know you a little better. Have you posted any pictures yet? If not, maybe you can pose with your "little raiders." Just make sure we can see your eyes.

I've heard of Bobby Knight, if only for his tendency to throw fits--and chairs. It's shame too. Doesn't he have a rather impressive number of wins as coach?

Keep on polishing those contact lenses. As far as I know there's no such thing as cleaning your contacts too much.

You have to have a certain number of posts before you can post here, and I think you've got enough, Red.

Here's the link to the instructions on how to post pictures. I'm looking forward to seeing you and your lil raiders soon.

I use Clear Care to break up the gunk on my lenses and disinfect them overnight then I use either Costco or Sams Club multiple purpose solution in the morning to get off the gunk and give them some extra moisture. I suffer from chronic dry eye and have found this combo gets my lenses very clean and allows me to wear them all day and most of the evening. In addition, I work for an internet based company therefore I stare at a computer for 9+ hours a day, which you all know how that can dry out lenses. I truly love this combo of cleaning.

Thanks for that valuable information, AGBear976. I hope others can use this information for more comfortable eyes.

+1 AGBear976 - I also now use Clear Care twice a week. I rinse with Bausch and Lomb BioTrue. Before Clear Care my Avaira lenses would be gunked up by the end of the second week even with careful cleaning every night. In fact for a long time I went to weekly wear. Now with the twice a week Clear Care treatment I find the lenses are good as new for the entire 2 weeks. I could easily wear them another week but stick to the directions. Interested if anyone else is wearing them longer.

I also rinse my lenses with the same B&L after I remove them from the finished Clear Care process (usually 8 hours with disc unit that came with bottle). I found that eliminated occasional episodes where, I never figured out why (it only did so perhaps every third time), the lens coming out of the Clear Care caused irritation.

Following up on my last post a year ago. I figured out that rinsing with B&L multi-purpose solution before soaking the lenses in Clear Care was a bad idea. I noticed that it can cause accelerated bubbling which causes much more evaporation so that a portion of the lens isn't soaked all night leaving peroxide on that portion.

Now I follow directions - put the lenses in the Clear Care case - stream Clear Care solution over each for a few seconds to rinse off and then soak them in the Clear Care case overnight .

I now use Clear Care nightly and only use the other solution for rinsing them in the morning.
