Default Preservative Free solutions

I need a good preservative free solution. I'm having reactions to the no rub solutions. I had to switch from those to adaily cleaner then I would put them in to B & L Sensitive Eye Saline Solution to soak. I used to be able to get the Aerosol Preservative Free B & L, but I think they stopped making it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you.

Penny

Hi Penny. I did a quick Google search and came up with two suggestions. Unisol 4 Preservative Free Saline Solution and Blairex Sterile Saline Solution for Soft contact lenses, which is a spray. You can get more information on both of them at drugstore.com.

I've heard good things about Unisol, but the Blairex spray is something new.

A daily cleaner with a preservative free saline solution doesn't generally disinfect your lenses.

A hydrogen peroxide system is used by many people who are allergic to solutions. Clearcare and AOSept are examples.

Blarix came out after either CIBA or B&L dropped the saline aerosol. CIBA Vision SoftWear Saline for Sensitive Eyes was a good product. I believe it's discontinued but you might find some if you look.

I read this thread and was prepared to give an answer similar to what PTUser said, but I like your answer. Good call.

I discovered something called purilens yesterday. Haven't used it myself, but the concept seems nifty and what few reviews I could find of it seemed positive. Might be something worth looking info for those who can't even use Clear Care.

Since I have so few posts, I can't post a link. But google "purilens system" and you can find more info on it.

That's simple. Just go to purilens.com.

I couldn't find a site that compared Purilens to Clear Care, so I'd like to know what Lens 101 members think. We can break new Internet ground!

Default this what is succesfull with my patients!

Baush and lomb sensitive eyes daily cleaner

Baush and lomb sensitive eyes saline

Clear Care disinfectant

Unizyme enzyme tablets

this regime works with all lenses including silicone hydrogels. I have done alot of research and having sensitive eyes myself, this what I recommend to my sensitive patients as well.

this regime keeps lenses clean clear and free of irratating deposits and has very low ocular sensitivity.

Thank you. I agree with what you wrote. I have found, that it IS the best for me. I've been using B/L sensitive eye solutions for a long time. I had an optomitrist tell me years ago, that enzyming was one of the best things I could do with having sensitive eyes. The only problem with doing it, it will thin the lenses faster. It works very well for me, though.

What kind of lenses are you cleaning with the sensitive eye solutions? If they're daily or a weekly lenses, why worry about them "thinning"? I've never heard of contact lenses breaking because they were "thinned" by the cleaning solution. Has that happened to you?

correction:: u can protein clean contact lenses 10x per day( not that it would be necessary) but soft contact lenses do not "thin" out.

Just curious from an eye care proff point of view where u were given information that contacts lenses thin out with alot of enzyming cycles!?!!?!

If you have sensitive eyes it is also best to review the contact lenses u are prescribed because there are a host of new materials that are resistant to deposits!!!

PS some people are actually sensitive to contact lens deposits causing an immuno response creating an eye disease called GPC (giant papillary congunctivitis). This disease usually afflicts soft contact lens wearers. With the onset of this contact lens related disease it does make the eyes even more sensitive.

And Again it can only be observed through a slit lamp examination of your eyes!

Would you mind listing some of the contact lens materials that are resistant to deposits?

Just so u know I have no agenda with contact lens companies, types or manufacturers....!

My personal faves:
Non silicone hydrogels
Coopervision Frequency and Proclear!

Silicone lenses:

Cibavision night and day aqua and Air Optix Aqua

BL PureVision and purevision 2 HD

worst that i have seen for deposits is Acuvue Oasys, and advanced and tru eye!
and moderate depositing with Avaira and Biofinity!

Deposits are determined by your tear film and quality and the contact lens material!

Heres a thought!!! I have done alot of research in ocular allergies and Clear care is rated one of the best products for allergic conditions. Purilens also.

but I am just curious if there are any other underlying eye conditions u may have which may be causing a total sensitivity all together!? SOme of these eye "issues" may be slight so u may not notice anything! Perhaps it's time to bring those eyes into an optometrists office or opthalmologist to see whats going on.

I wear Air Optix Bifocal. It's not the cleaning solution, it's the enzyme tablet cleaner. Every time you use it on weekly or monthly, it thins them an shortens the time you can wear them. I have allergies and I produce a lot of protien on my lenses. My optometrist suggested enzyme cleaning to remove the protien build up.

Yes, I have had lenses tear because of enzyme use. Air Optix bifocal are expensive, so it's irritating when they tear before the full month. But, the enzyme cleaning helps me wear them better.

I guess saying thinning is the wrong word. Iasked my ophthalmologist about this when he told me to use an enzyme cleaner at least once a month on my weekly or monthly contacts. Contacts wear out. If you have a biweekly contact, by the end of the two weeks, it gets cloudy an you have to change it. Same thing for montly contacts. Using an enzyme tablet can shorten the length of use. It may get the protien off the contacts, but it makes it more fragile. It wears out faster. I wear an expensive contact, I want them to last as long as possible; however, if I do not use the enzymes at least once during the time I wear them, they irritate my eyes, which means a possibility of me having to take a break from wearing them.

My eyes, apparently, create a lot of protien. I have tried a long time to wear contacts. I was first put on PureVision bifocals. They worked for a little while. I even bought two boxes. By the second month, my right eye just would not wear it. It would itch so badly, I ended up taking it out. My left eye accepted it much better. So, I started enzyming them. It helped, but my right eye still would not let me wear it for a long period of time. It would get red, so I went back to my ophthamologist and he put me on Air Optix Aqua bifocal for my right eye and regular Air Optix for my left. It evened out my distance. The thinner contacts made it so much easier to wear. I still had two boxes of PureVision bifocals, so I bought extra Air Optix Aqua and will periodically wear the PureVision bifocal in my left eye and Air Optix aqua in my right. I have to soak them in sensitive solution over night before I can wear them because my eyes are so sensitive to solutions.

I have to used everything sensitive to ensure I have no protien build up or wearing contacts irritate my eyes. It means not using the no rub. Rubbing, of course, makes it easier to tear the contact. You add enzyme tablets to pull more protien off and it creates a more fragile contact.

This does not affect the extended wear contacts. They are made out of different material than the disposable contacts. Disposable lenses just do not last as long when you use enzyme treatments. That's all I meant.

Please post more of your experiences. You really give great information. Any suggestions on how I can successfully wear contacts without them bothering my eyes so much? Thank you.

They are too thick and bother my eyes really bad. I've worn them before and they actually scratched my eyelids. The gas permeable solution "tore" my eyes to pieces. I used Boston solution and cleaners and I was allergic to it. I just get so disappointed about wearing contact lenses. I do like Air Optix Aqua, though. They are just so expensive, but they are thin and more comfortable than any contact I have ever worn.

Air Optix Aqua: thin and comfortable, but expensive. Lens.com has them for $38.95 per box. Is that less than you pay?

btw from what you have said in this forum you'd be the perfect candidate for one day disposable lenses.

Acuvue one day true eye ( only one day silicone hydrogel )

How about that, nickelpeed? Have you ever thought about daily lenses that you take out before bed and throw away?

It's not the regular Air Optix that are expensive. It's the multifocals that are very expensive, they are the ones I wear.

yes multifocal and multifocal toric are the most expensive for disposable lenses!

If cost is an issue! Have u ever looked into rigid gas permeable multifocal lenses with the Optimum care system (great for sensitive eyes)!

RGP lenses last approx 3 years and the new class of materials available allow lots of oxygen thru!

Boston XO2 are great and its a super comfortable rgp material

I already tried me on gas permeables. They are just too thick for my eyes. It felt like I had sand in my eyes. They started scratching my lids, so we went to PureVision, but they were also too thick. That's how I ended up in Air Optix. If I hadn't already spent my money on the other two, the Air Optix would not have been so expensive. I still have two boxes of my PureVision, so I need to let the Air Optix last as long as I can.

I actually do not mind Toric, either, but my optometrist decided my astigmatism wasn't great enough to put me in a pair.

I had thought about that. I originally asked my optometrist about them, but he gave me a full check up and said that my eyes were very healthy, so I there was no reason to not be able to wear monthlies. I think one a day would be something I'd like to try. Fresh pair every day, sounds good to me.

I'm glad you've got healthy eyes, nickelpeed. I hope you let us know if you decide to try daily disposable lenses. You can tell us about the experience.
