“ Brand: AMO / Lens Accessories: Solutions & Cleaners „
Last time I visited my optician, he very kindly gave me some free contact lense solution. It was a new solution to me and one that I hadn't seen in the shops. He explained that this solution was not only ultra easy to use, but also very effective in keeping the actual eye lubricated when wearing lenses.
I decided to give this contact lense formula a try. I have to admit, I was quite astounded with the results. I found that within a couple of days of using this solution my eyes felt much more alive and rejuvinated. The dryness in the eye had gone. Also the heavy feeling in my eyes had disappeared and I felt so much better.
The other thing I noted regarding this solution, Is how easy and straightforward it is to use. There are no time consuming instructions. It is a one task process and is very quick and easy. You just take the lenses out, rub with the solution, then put the lenses to soak in the solution for a number of hours and voila!! job done.
I noticed that my vision seemed clearer when using this solution. Sometimes I noted a filmy residue when using other brands. But this formula made my vision very clear and precise. I also noted that when using this solution, I had less experience of irritation of the eye. I was also able to wear my lenses for longer periods.
As with all contact lense solutions, tonics, cleansers etc. you do have to treat this product with respect and follow the instuctions carefully. The need for proper cleansing and changing the solution is paramount in the effectiveness of the product. Dust and dirt can be picked up really easily and this in turn can lead to eye infections.
I love this complete contact lense formula. It really works well for me. It leaves me with clear and comfort in regards to wearing contact lenses. The solution is not too strong either, so I have not experienced the initial burning sensation as I have with some other solutions.
I have to admit, I have yet to purchase a bottle of this solution as my optician has given me a good supply to be going on with. (I have spent tumps of money in his shop over the years.) What I would recommend is asking your optician about this solution and asking them if they have any samples you can have. Then you can try before you commit and buy.
This solution comes packaged in a plastic bottle with a screw top lid. The top of the bottle has a hole in it so that the liquid can come out. I would say that this lotion does come out at a very fast pace and this can lead to spillages and wasted solution. So be cautious when using..
All in all I think this solution is very good. I like the image and marketing of this product. Simply because it appeals to a younger market. The fact that it is quick to use but still offers great quality is an excellent concept. One which I find suits my bust schedule down to the ground.
I bought this soltion thinking that it would clean well and that that was all that mattered . Stupid naive me, first time contact lens wearer! The first couple of days my eyes felt absolutely fine.Until I looked inside my contact lens case. I could actually SEE the bacteria and germs floating around. I was so grossed out and every time I cleaned them, I just HAD to wash it twice. My biggest main problem with this is how DRY my eyes turned after using it after the first couple of days. When I removed my lenses, they would actually STICK together and I could only unstick them after putting solution on them. Seriously that dry.Eyes are different so they may work for you, but I wouldn't recommend them, it's not a really good experience with comfort.
I've been wearing lenses for 7 years now and started using specsavers' own brand solution for about 4 years. I then discovered this when I had run out of solution and could only get to Boots- I chose it because of the packaging and price (I got a small bottle). I have got to honestly say that my using any other solution actually dries my eyes out now. This solution is absoloutely great, it lubricates well and the discomfort and dryness that a lot of lense wearers get, is not experienced with this solution. However, if you leave the lenses in solution for less than 6 hours then you'll probably experience irritation. You need to allow atleast 8 hours and you will see for yourself that you'll hardly feel that you're wearing lenses. Another great thing about this solution over most others is that you can use this to rub- cleanse your lenses and it removes everything. For example, I wear eyeliner sometimes and sometimes little black flecks will be on the lense when I remove them, well I just rub- cleanse them a little on both sides and they're clean! I never had that with the other solution I was using, no residue would come off which is one of the reasons I rate this so highly. Also, a final point, I have sensitive eyes and this has never ever irritated or dried my eyes. You don't need to be too gentle with your lenses either with this solution, it won't cause them to tear. All in all, I would never use any other solution for my lenses and sensitive eyes.
After wearing soft contact lenses for around 10 years, I had always had touble with various lenses sollutions stinging my eyes, in particular the 3 step sollutions.
My friend then recommended me Amo Complete Easy Rub Sollution, well I have never looked back. Since I have been using it I have never had stinging eyes, my lenses stay comfortable all day and I do wear my lenses for a long day.
All you have to do is remove lenses rub over with the one step formula pop lenses into your case and top up with more sollution, they are then ready to be worn again the next day.
The sollution is available from Boots, Superdrug, some opticians and also in the larger Sainsburys and Tescos stores.
I also find it really useful as it comes in 4 different size bottles, I normally buy the medium bottle bu also the travel size which is great to keep in your handbag.
Each bottle comes in a box with a new lenses case.
