      good all round lens solution

      Background I am incredibly short sighted. My prescription is -11.25 for my glasses or -10 for my contacts and I've been wearing glasses since I was 7. I was allowed to try contacts from the age of 15 which I was incredibly excited at and I was given 12 hour lens to try coupled with this solution to clean and store my lens in. I've been wearing contacts now for 12 years and I've used this solution for most of that that time. Price/Availability I am on the Specsavers lens mail scheme now this has changed over the years to suit my contact lens type as I moved to day and night lens at 20 so I don't use the solution as often as I would do on 12 or 16 hour lens but occasionally I have a need for it. The cost of the solution on its own I couldn't say because I've never brought it on its own, to get this as part of a scheme with contacts starts from around £15 per month, now this includes all your solutions, lens cases, lens, check ups and is delivered to your address every 3 months. You can buy this solution online, the bottle size is 250ml and costs £12.95 for 3 bottles, this is on Specsavers direct. The solution itself is the standard solution to use at Specsavers, I've used 12 hour lens, dailies and day and night lens and I've always been given this to use and its always on show/use in store so if you are part of the lens scheme you will most probably get this solution to use. A 250ml bottle usually lasts around a month, depending on how often you use it, if you don't use it every day it will take longer, Specsavers advises throwing out opened solutions after 3 months. Packaging This comes in a simple white bottle with a green lid and writing. It fits in well with the Specsavers brand as they have a lot of green in their stores. The one thing I would recommend about these bottles is that once opened they do leak so if you go away or carry these around take a sealed bottle with you or carry it on a sealed bag to prevent it leaking onto your clothes Use When taking out or changing my lens my routine is as follows. If I have contacts in I take them out of my eyes one at a time. I put the lens in the palm of my hand and add about a teaspoon of solution and gently rub the lens for about 10 seconds with the tip of my middle finger, then I gently pick up the lens and place in the contact lens case, I repeat with the other lens. Once in the case I add lens solution to them, the lens case comes in two pieces, once to hold the lens in and the other to add the solution to. Once this is done I screw the lid on and keep the case up right. Taking the lens out to put back in is simple, unscrew the case and put in my eyes as needed, my vision is clear and the solution leaves the lens clean and it doesn't irritate my eyes. Overall Ive been using this solution on and off for 12 years and never had any issues with it. The solution cleans the lens well so when I put my contacts back in they feel clean and my vision is good. The solution has never irritated my eyes or made them feel sore at all. I am still on the lens mail scheme and will continue with it, that is unless I will ever be able to have laser treatment, if I don't I will still have contacts and will use this solution with them. I am giving it 4/5. I have to drop 1 star due to the bottle leaking but overall very good.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good contact lense solution

      I Have used specsavers contact lenses solution for over 10 years, I like it and have never had a problem with it. It comes in a bottle which is 250ml and is easy to squirt the solution out without spilling. I use it for cleaning and storing my contact lenses in the solution at night, they usually supply 1 bottle for each month with my monthly contact lenses, and I always have lots left over each month, so I never run out. And the date on the bottle usually lasts at least 2years, so dont worry if they start to build up because you will get the chance to use them still. As a precautions you are always ment to discard any open solution bottles after 3months of opening, so its handy if you write the date on the bottle from the date you opened it, just to be on the safe side. But I have always used it all within 3months, but ocasionally I may have opened two bottles at the same time, which is when you need to be careful with the date. I would definitely recommend this eye solution.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good solution to aid in applying lenses, cleaning lenses and storing lenses

      Since I officially decided I was blind (or at least more blind than I would have liked), I went for an eye test and agreed to start wearing contact lenses to see better. In retrospect I should have thought more about this decision. Once you start wearing contact lenses for long periods, you just go more and more blind. Anyway, I was with specsavers and decided to take them up on a contract for lenses - paying £13 a month for my lense prescription, which came with three bottles of this easy vision contact lens cleaning solution. I thought three bottles was a bit excessive for my lenses each month. I would barely have started the second bottle and another three would arrive! This in conjunction with the price led me to purchase my contact lenses elsewhere whilst getting eye tests regularly. However I had collected a nice stock of this lens solution, which I am still using today! The solution comes in a 250ml bottle, which has a green print design on the front. This features a turtle swimming in the water. I am not sure why the water is so green - it does not give the impression of the solution leading to clearer or 'easy' vision! The cap is sealed when new, and can easily be broken to start using the solution. Upon unscrewing the lid, you can see a small hole where the solution comes through. If you give the bottle a little squeeze whilst upside down, the solution will squirt out. This is most useful for when you need to fill your contact lens holder up with fluid to keep them moist. However if you simply tip the bottle upside down with no more pressure, the solution drips out. This is great for adding a bit into your lens before you fit it onto your eye. This way, it tends to stick better and also helps my eyes from drying out quickly. After taking your lenses out, you can put a bit more of this fluid inside them and rub them gently between your thumb and index finger to help clean off any dirt. After this, I put them into a container filled with the solution before giving them a shake and leaving them. This seems to clean them well and I can always be sure to return to nice clear clean contact lenses. It is still important to remember not to use moisturiser on your hands before handling the lenses without washing them as this damages them. Also, never store the lenses in normal water as this is said to damage them too. This contact lens solution is great and can be used whilst putting the lenses in as well as to clean them and store them within. They are often found available to buy on eBay where you can pick up around three bottles for £10 or so. This is not a bad price, and three bottles would usually last me two to three months.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great contact lens solution.

        A couple of years ago it was established that I had some problems with my vision and I have been wearing glasses and contact lenses since then. Sometimes I am working somewhere different away from my usual workplace or sometimes I am going to a big event and do not want to have my glasses on for photographs and such like. This is usually when I wear contact lenses and sometimes I wear them daily for several weeks because of work and numerous social gatherings. I tend to buy my contact lenses on monthly direct debit however sometimes I stray from this if I see good special offers elsewhere. I actually spotted this solution on eBay and paid around £11 for 3 bottles. This was a saving of almost £2.00 compared to what I was currently paying and so this seemed like a good deal as they were all sealed with an expiry date of 2014. I knew that I would definitely use them before this time and so I snapped them up. This solution has a green label on it and a nice picture of a turtle swimming on the front. The design is quite simple and the bottles are 250ml in size. The bottles has to be unsealed before you can open the lid but this is quite simple and takes just a few seconds. A light squeeze on the bottle allows the solution to be dripped out easily and makes for a good control to ensure that I do not waste solution that I would not have needed. Depending on how often you replace the solution in your lens holder this will last a minimum of one month. For me I get around one months usage from it and that is with changing the solution every single time that I need to 'wash' my contact lenses. This solution helps to keep my lenses in fantastic condition and keeps them scratch and dirt free at all times. Obviously using this solution is very simple. Just squirt it in to your contact lens holder and you're set for use! I use a nice amount in each lens holder and I sometimes will use it just seconds before placing the lens in to my eye to ensure that they're as moist as possible for easy application to my eye. I would say that this solution is good. I've had no problems using it and whilst the contact lenses do not stay moist for very long I would expect this with any solution because our home is usually above 20c even first thing in the morning (sigh!). I've used other solutions in the past and they work just as well as this, in all I am pleased that I found this on eBay at a slightly reduced rate compared to that which Specsavers are offering. Mine lasts around 4-5 weeks usually and I change the solution every day to keep my lenses in good condition as I spend around £20 a month, sometimes more, on lenses and like to get my monies worth before I have to discard them! The price for this is reasonable and the usage of this solution is straight forward and does not cause me any problems with my eyes at all which is good as I can be very sensitive to products.

        Does exactly what it needs to without costing the earth

        I have been wearing contact lenses for years now and have never changed as I am really happy with the deal I get. From specsavers I get a £13 deal on monthly soft lenses and they get delivered to my house every three months with three months' supply. The case and three bottles of solution are included with the pack. The solution is specsavers own, but I can't say for something like this I am really bothered about using something with a brand name. Specsavers have never let me down, so for the price I pay I am well happy. I always have leftover solution at the end of the month, so you get plenty and the bottles are designed well. They are quite flat to ensure the package can fit through the letterbox upon delivery. Which makes it easier as you don't have to collect from the store, or make sure you are in for the delivery. The lid unscrews to what looks like a giant nib of a pen, that kind of shape anyway. This fits into the case provided with the lenses perfectly, so no balancing or steady hand is required. And you don't get the solution everywhere and no wastages. There is a really tiny whole which the solution comes out of when the bottle is squeezed so no leakages and not too much comes out at once, which is also great for when you are cleaning the contacts.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Recommended.

        Prior to having my eyes lasered (best thing I ever did by the way!) I used contact lenses for many years. Initially I used non-disposable contact lenses and eventually moved on to disposable contact lenses because these just suited me better. However, as I said, I did use non-disposables for a long time and, as such, I needed to use contact lens solution in order to store the contacts when they were not in use. I was not loyal to one particular brand, but one contact lens solution I used was Specsavers Easy Vision Contact Lens Solution. I got this direct from Specsavers and currently a 3 bottles (which translates to a 3 month supply) costs £12.95 - which I think is very reasonable. Specsavers would always arrange for me to pick this up when I picked up my contact lenses and so it was really convenient. The solution comes in a relatively ugly and non-inspiring plastic bottle which is a flat shape - but it's contact lens solution and I don't think the design of the bottle is particularly relevant. However, I do think the nozzle of the bottle is well designed because it allows the fluid to be directed into the little storage receptical easily and without any mess. There are clear directions in order to use the solution which are easy to follow and basically involves firstly rinsing the contact lens with the solution and giving them a little rub with the solution which cleans them and removes any impurities from the lens. Then it involves placing the lens in the reciptical which holds the contact lens solution and keeps the lens safe and clean when not in use. I used my own reciptical rather than the one supplied by Specsavers simply because I was used to using this one and I prefered the design. Overall, I found that the Specsavers Easy Vision Contact Lens Solution was very adequate for my use and cleaned the contact lenses well. I think the solution itself is pretty much the same among all solutions (saline) but the price and the nozzle is a positive and I can recommend it for this reason.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A top quality, all purpose solution for your soft contact lenses.

          I've been wearing contact lens for many years now, getting them supplied from Specsavers every 3 months as part of their Lensmail scheme for monthly disposables delivered to my door. As well as including the lenses and a new storage case, the package also comes with 3 months supply (3 x 250ml bottles) of the Easy Vision Contact Lens Solution, all for the sum of £12 per month. To buy this solution separately, Specsavers are charging £12.95 for the 3 months supply. Of note, the outside of the bottle has recently changed slightly. In the past (as per the DooYoo picture) the bottle was mainly white with a mixture of green and blue writing printed directly on to the bottle, with a sort of checkerboard at the top with 9 squares, and an image of a drop in each. The new bottle recently introduced is exactly the same shape, but now has a large sticker on the front and the back. The front sticker is now mainly green with a picture towards the top of sea turtle swimming. They are both exactly the same product, in the same shaped bottles, just with different labelling. Speaking of the product, it is what is called a multi-purpose solution specifically for soft contact lenses. Gone are the days when I first started wearing contact lenses (many years ago) and you had separate cleaner and storage solution bottles to contend with. Now with this Easy Vision solution, you use the same solution to clean your lenses and then to store your lenses in within the storage container. So the one solution now covers all the cleaning, rinsing, disinfecting and storage aspects of your soft contact lenses. Now I've probably used this solution everyday for the last 10 plus years with no problems - no eye irritation, no allergic reactions or anything, although, as with most things, other people may have problems with it. But your Optician should be able to advise you of an alternative if that happens. The solution itself is clear and feels perhaps ever so slightly greasy, but that is probably due to the cleaning and lubricating agents it contains to get it to bond to the lens to lubricate it before you put it in your eye. Each bottle, when delivered to me, seems to have a shelf life of around 2 years, and comes with a protective plastic lock seal around the base of the cap, which breaks when you first open it so that you are assured that the contents are sterile. I then find that each 250ml bottle is more than enough to last me a month, and sometimes gets me out to about a month and a half, and that is cleaning the lenses at the end of each day, refilling an empty storage container each night to put the lenses in, and then lubricating them first thing in the morning to put them back in my eyes. In summary, this solution is clearly top quality where I've had years of use with no problems whatsoever. Hence, easily a 5* recommendation.

            .

            I have been using Specsavers Easy Vision Contact Lens solution for several years now and find is effective and keeps my lenses clean. The solution comes as part of your monthly lens package or it can be bought from Specsavers for £12.95 for 3 bottles. Therefore it is reasonably priced in comparison to similar products. I use the solution in my lens container so my lenses soak in it overnight and whenever I'm not wearing my lenses. I find that it keeps the lenses clean and moist and I have never noticed any residue on the lenses. I also use the solution when I am putting my lenses in; I squirt some solution onto the lens before I put it in, this helps to clean the lens and also makes it easier to go into your eye. I would note that I don't have sensitive eyes and have never had any problems with solutions. However friends have commented that when they used this solution, they experienced a slight stinging sensation, therefore it might not be suitable for everyone, but as with all of these type of products you will need to try them for yourself. Overall I think it is a good solution that keeps lenses clean and soft.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Excellent contact lens solution, for cleaning and disinfecting.

            I have been wearing contact lenses since I was 17 so over 10 years now and have always used the Specsavers Easy Vision Contact Lens Solution which I have never had any problems with. As I am on a direct debit contract for my contact lenses then I have never had to buy a bottle of solution separately so am not sure of the cost of a single bottle. I currently pay £12 per month for my monthly disposable contact lenses and this comes with a bottle of the easy vision solution and a contact lens storage pot. I find this to be excellent value hence why I have never seen the need to change to another company. Also I have heard many people complain about having bad reactions and irritation to contact lens solutions so I always choose to stick to the easy vision solution as it suits me well. The solution is designed for soft contact lenses and is a multi-purpose solution which can be used for cleaning, rinsing and disinfecting. I use the solution to clean my lenses each evening when I take them out, I place the lens in the palm of my hand, squeeze a small amount of the solution onto the lens and rub gently with my finger to thoroughly clean away any dirt from the lens. I then use the solution to store my lenses overnight to keep them moist and to disinfect the lenses. My lenses are always very soft and lubricated in the moring and I never have any problems putting them in my eye, which to me proves that the solution is doing what it is meant to. Over then 10 years that I have been using the easy vision solution I have never experienced any irritation at all. I did develop an eye ulcer a couple of years ago but I do not believe this had anything to do with the solution as both the doctor at the hospital who treated my ulcer didn't recommend that I changed my lenses or solution and neither did my optician. I know that this solution would not suit everyone but I find it perfect for me and would say that if you have not tried it and are looking for a new contact lens solution then to give it a try. It is available from all Specsavers stores and possibly on their website too.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A good quality contact lens solution

            Before realising I was short sighted, I had all kinds of troubles. Obviously for a starter, I wouldn't be able to see as clearly as I would have liked. I struggled to see things in the distance. I would then suffer further if I was tired as my eye sight was twice as bad - slightly blurry and I just felt wrong. This caused further stress, and this further worsened my sight. It was like a spiral down. However there is one product, which I have become very familiar with to this date, which is the central solution (quite literally) to sight loss and contact lenses. I don't know what it was, but I felt obliged to go to Specsavers when I started losing my far sight. Perhaps it was their great adverts, or the fact I felt like I would be in good hands with them as they are a well-known and widely popular. I soon got my eyes tested and decided I wanted to go with contact lenses as opposed to glasses, although I later bought a back up pair of glasses as it's always good to have them, mainly in case your eyes get an infection so you cannot wear contacts. I ended up on a monthly contract paying £13 a month for contact lenses along with this Easy Vision contact lens solution. I got three bottles of the stuff included in the package with three sets of contact lenses and a couple of new contact lens containers to store them in the solution. This would all last three months, but it still cost £13 each month. As far as I remember, Specsavers retail one bottle of the solution at around £7 or so. The current bottles that I receive are mostly green with a large label on the front that features a turtle swimming under water. The bottles are 250ml in size and tend to last me ages. You are meant to replace the solution in the contact lens holder everyday and wash out the holder every now and then. However I tend to replenish the solution every few days as I rarely get round to doing it every day. This means that I am getting a build up of these solutions. Ideally I'd like to pay less and only receive 2 bottles for three months as this would be plenty for me. The solution works very well though and keeps my contact lenses in good condition. The contact lenses are nice and moist once I take them out but they do start to dry up pretty quickly after you take them out the solution. I guess this rate depends on the type of contact lens and also what the air/temperature is like in the room you are in. I tend to put a few drips of the solution onto each lens before putting it in my eye. This helps the contact lens to adhere to the surface of the eye and tends to make it less painful providing you aren't putting it on at an angle. The 250ml containers are sealed so you must release this before unscrewing the lid. This then reveals a little drip mechanism, and you can squeeze the bottle a little to help squeeze out larger volumes of the solution if you don't want it to just drip out. I have even used the solution directly into my eye if they are a little dry to help them moisturise. It has worked perfectly for this, although it may not have the same effect as certain eye drops. Overall I'd recommend using this solution as I've had no problems with it. I don't see how you can use so much that they give you on order, even if you do re-fill it every day but I feel they must give some extra as a back up. Considering the price they charge for it anyway, I'd prefer to opt for a bottle less and pay less! You will need a solution especially for contact lenses (water doesn't work - it damages them!) so I'd recommend trying this one out. Thanks for reading

            Stops sensitive eyes, pratical to use highly recommended

            I have been wearing contact lenses for around 6 years. Each day when I first put the lenses in they felt very sensitive and when I went outside and looked at the sky and my eyes would water. After 10 minutes of wearing them they would be fine for the rest of the day . I didn't know any different so thought this was just normal. After some problems with my previous optitions I moved to Specsavers, and never looked back.The optition told me lots of useful things that my previous optition had never bothered to. He asked me do my eyes ever feel sensitive? And of course the reply was Yes! He recommened that I use EasyVision preservative free Contact Lens solution as it will help with the sensitivity. After two days of using it my eyes felt better than ever. Specsavers provide a home delivery service. They send your contact lenses and liquid in a handy size box that fits through your letterbox, in my case every 6 months.The solution comes in a 250 ml white plastic bottle.Its not the most stylish bottle. It is square with a screw top nozzzle, that looks very cheap and nasty. The sticker on the front is green with a nice photo of a turtle swimming under the waves. It tells you simply what the bottle contains. On the back is an in depth desription of the product and directions of use. However it really dosn't matter about the visual of the bottle as the it does its job well. To dipense remove the screwtop lid to reveal a nozzle with a very small hole for good hygeine. Simply give the bottle a little squeeze and the liquid dispenses in a steady stream. It is recommened to use this liquid along with the cage type lense holder as it helps the liquid get into all pats of the lense. I did have problems with my lenses ripping in this style so I upgraded my lenses to the premium style which are amazing and never rip. For just £2 a month extra. Having my lenses on direct debit I can't say the individual price. I get 6 months lenses and 3 liquids for around £15 a month. But I would highly recommend this solution for helping sensitive eyes and would pay more than average price for it.

            great value and easy to use.

            Introduction~~~~~ I've had problems with my eyes since I was little and as I got older I felt uncomfortable wearing glasses so I decided to enquire about contact lens to help me feel more comfortable in the outside world. I found specsavers to have a great plan so I thought why not lets go for it. The Product~~~~~ As I only have to wear one contact in my left eye the plan I went for is extremely well priced at only £4 a month, a real bargain in my opinion and that include 3 monthly lens, solution and containers which all come in the post which is very handy for me as I'd forget if I had to pick them up. I have to get a special solution because I'm allergic to the normal one and that's provided to me for no extra cost. I found the aftercare I received to be wonderful and specsavers provide you with a free lens in case you've lost or you've run out. The Lens and Solution~~~~~ The lens itself is very comfortable to wear and you never feel it's in your eye, sometimes I have to check just to make sure it is there. I wear mine up to 8 or 9 hours a day so I do feel they can get a little bit dry but that rarely happens. The solution and containers are very easy to use although if you use peroxide solution you do need to keep them in at least 6 hours before you wear them or your eyes will sting. Also another positive small note it that the bottles are slimline so they will fit neatly into your cupboard neatly and won't take up much room either. The Final Word~~~~~ I have to admit this is a great product and very affordable with great aftercare. The solution is easy to use and with the handy squeezy bottle you never use more than you have to.

            An economical and easy to use contact lens solution

            I've been wearing contact lenses for around seven years or so, as part of an all-inclusive monthly package from Specsavers. For a small monthly fee (£10 for a package including lenses, cleaning solution and storage case) I get everything I need delivered to my door every three months. This Easy Vision contact lens solution is Specsavers' own brand of cleaning solution and three bottles of this come supplied within my package. It is possible to purchase the bottles separately, if preferred, directly from any Specsavers optician. I use soft monthly disposable lenses which require cleaning with this recommended solution in between every use. This all in one solution is used to both rinse the lenses after removing them from the eyes and to soak the lenses between uses. The cleaning is crucial for the health of my eyes and to remove any residue, dirt and germs between uses. The solution also keeps the lenses soft and safe to use. The solution itself is totally transparent and completely odourless. Essentially, it looks like water with the exact same consistency. On the odd occasion I've ended up tasting this - don't ask!- it does have a slightly salty taste to it. I'm not dead yet so it appears not to be toxic if accidentally tasted in very minute quantities but it isn't something that I or even more sensible people would recommend doing on purpose! The style of the packaging is fairly simple but functional, with a plain slightly squeezable white and green bottle. The bottle dispenses the liquid easily with just a gentle squeeze and it takes just seconds to fill up the barrel storage container with the recommended amount of liquid. It is easy to direct straight into the palm of my hand too, to cover and rinse my lenses thoroughly, so there really is no excuse to get this stuff everywhere! If it does spill, however, the solution does not appear to stain surfaces at all. The shape of the bottle is fairly unusual as it is relatively tall and flat, considering the amount of solution it contains (250ml). This design is totally intentional as it ensures that the three bottles can be posted within a very thin box, which fits perfectly inside a customer's letterbox, meaning I don't need to be at home when my lenses are delivered. I find the solution really straightforward to use and have never suffered any adverse reactions to either the lenses or the cleaning solution itself. The only issue that I've encountered with the solution relates to the quantities provided. Specsavers clearly expect that a customer will use around one bottle of this stuff each month, but I find that I use a little less than that. Over the years, my surplus has built up and up and I know have several unopened bottles! Even though I wear lenses most days, only a small amount is needed to actually rinse them thoroughly and the storage container doesn't need to be filled to the brim. Some people do use the solution to rinse the lenses before putting them back in their eyes but, as I don't need to do that for comfort, that may be why I use slightly less solution than other people. I have resolved the issue with the surplus by cancelling the solution for the next few months (which does result in a slightly lower monthly fee.) The only drawback with this is that my package no longer includes the storage container which is a bit irritating! As an economical all-purpose contact lens cleaning solution, I have never had any difficulties, concerns or issues with the Easy Vision product and will happily continue to use it. I would certainly endorse the Specsavers monthly lens programme alongside their cleaning solution, based on my positive experience.

              A no-frill ways to clean my contact lenses which works brilliantly!

              I am currently on a monthly contact lens scheme from Specsavers, where for the price of £10 per month I receive three pairs of lenses and three bottles of Easy Vision solution delivered to me every twelve weeks. I can obviously buy an alternative solution (at an extra cost), but this one has suited me for so many years that I rarely do unless I've heard particularly good things about a new brand or product. There's not much to say about Easy Vision solution; it cleans my lenses well and also keeps them supple throughout the month. I personally clean my lenses both after taking them out of my eyes and also first thing in the morning before I put them back in, this solution leaves me with clear and smear-free lenses which is extremely important not only for the health of your eyes but also from an I-can-see-all-day point of view. This is a multi-purpose solution, making it suitable not just for cleaning but also for soaking your lenses overnight and rinsing them off if some irritation occurs during the day. The preservative free solution means there are no 'nasties' to annoy the very delicated and balanced eye area, while the addition of Oxipol aids the cleaning and disinfecting of my lenses and also helps to keep them well lubricated. I've never had any eye irritation while using this multi-purpose solution - actually, the only irritation I've experienced is through the horribly bulky shape of the bottle as I hate having to lug it with me when I go out for the day or away! For this reason I'll sometimes buy smaller bottles of solution (other brands, usually opting for the cheapest) just for ease of transportability. I can see the reasoning of the tall thin bottles as they do stack nicely in the bathroom, but a shorter round bottle would suit most busy people much better.

                I wont be using this solution again!

                Specsavers Easy Vision All Purpose Contact Lens Solution Fed up with the high prices and rude staff at my old opticians, I decided to swap to Specsavers for my eye appointments and contact lens purchases. It worked out that by getting the exact same contact lens and the solution for them; I was saving half the money I had spent at my old opticians. I did, however, have to change my solution to Specsavers own solution which worried me slightly as I have sensitive eyes and was concerned that a change in solution may cause my eyes to irritate. As it was cheaper, though, I decided to give it a go and see. The Easy Vision solution is a preservative free solution that contains Oxipol. The bottles which I have come in 250ml's with a twist to open lid and a squirting opening which allows the solution to be poured quite fast into the contact case. This means some solution often gets spilt which is annoying, though bearable. Cleaning the contacts was the same as with other solutions, and I felt that they gave a clear clean and kept the contacts soft. After a night time soak, my contacts did need that extra clean and when I was due to put my contacts back in my eyes, I felt confident, yet at first my eyes irritated me quite a bit. I found myself running my eyes a lot and felt them sting for about half an hour each time after putting them in my eyes. After a while, my eyes seemed to get used to the lotion. Now I know I could have gone and bought a different type to save me all the hassle and irritation, though life kept me so busy and I just can not get along with glasses so I plodded on. After about a week, I found that my eyes irritated me a lot less, though the morning stinging did continue for about half an hour each morning and after they settled for a number of hours, the stinging sensation came back in the early evenings. I also found them misting up frequently and having to clean them a couple of times a day which in turn, brought back more stinging sensations. I felt as though I was going around in circles. Now I did wonder whether it was the solution or perhaps a slight difference in the contacts, even though the contacts were monthly ones like my last lot from a different opticians. To answer this question, I went and bought my old solution from my old opticians (under their glares for leaving them and going elsewhere) and went onto a new set of contacts from my box earlier than needed, using only my old solution and hey presto! No more irritation! It may be that my eyes do not cope with this solution where others eyes might, though I know one thing for certain - even with the glares of my old opticians, I will continue using the old solution that I know will not hurt my eyes!
