Easy Vision Contact Lens Solution
Advantages: All your contact lense solution requirements in one.
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.
Summary: A top quality, all purpose solution for your soft contact lenses.
