    What are these tablets called? Can you buy them at the store right beside the cleaning solutions?

    hi,,Boston makes a enzyme cleaner (protein remover) it comes in disposable vials, 1 or 2 drops per lens well ,,but be sure to rinse your contacts very well before you put back in your eyes, i didn't and my lenses burned my eyes ALOT and i had to clean and disinfect the lenses 2x's before they were back to normal ,,i tried stretching the solution more from the vial and put 3 drops per well and i think it was to much,,needless to say i will not do that again

    Wow, all that from only 2 drops.

    Hey, I'm just curious about your punctuation. What are the double commas (,,) for?

    Stupid sticky keyboard.

    You know, not to get off the subject, but I've seen those double commas before and I think that's how they do it in some countries.

    I don't know, but it sounds plausible . . .

    Thanks for telling us about that Boston enzyme cleaner. It sounds good as long as you use it properly.

    Well, that's pretty easy to remember. Have you ever considered a career in advertising, Aaroncablemom?

    A 30 min soak in MENICON PROGENT will remove everything off the surface of ANY rgp lens material. Menicon Progent use to be an in-office lens cleaning treatment but now is sold to consumers for home use. IT's fantastic and will keep your rgp lenses in like new condition. Menicon Progent is packaged into three separate products. A +B solution mixed in the included vial. And then rinsed with the included saline.

    All you need to do after the 30 min soak, clean and disinfect and your lenses will be like when you first got them.
