Contact Lens Care

The surface of a contact lens may develop dry patches and protein deposits, especially late in the day. These dry patches interact with the eyelids, causing a scratchy, gritty, almost itchy sensation. They also interact with tear proteins, which can make the lens dirty. The dry spots can actually repel rewetting drops, which is why rewetting drops may not always be an adequate fix. With all the additional eye care needs of contact lens wearers, it is important to select the right contact lens solution.

OPTI-FREE® RepleniSH® Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution (MPDS)

OPTI-FREE® RepleniSH® Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution

When contact lenses are soaked in OPTI-FREE® RepleniSH® MPDS, the surface of the lens is reconditioned by retaining TearGlyde®, a proprietary reconditioning system, on the surface of the lens. This allows a thin layer of moisture from the eyes' natural tears to be maintained on the lens surface throughout the day. The solution may be used with silicone hydrogel and soft contact lenses.

Dry Eye

Dry eye describes a disorder that causes inadequate wetting of the eye. Millions of people worldwide suffer from dry eye, making this a very common condition. It usually manifests itself as dryness, itchiness or scratchiness, burning or stinging, tired eyes and sometimes includes sensitivity to light. In short, it feels as though there is something in the eye causing general discomfort. Dry eye can occur as a result of the normal aging process, exposure to air pollution or other environmental factors, or in conjunction with disease.
