SUPERDRUG SALINE SOLUTION
When it comes to saline solution I find them all the same. I've used numerous brands over the years and have yet to find a bad one. This means that my decision when it comes to buying solution is based on a) cost and b) bottle size.
Superdrugs own brand comes in 2 sizes, a 360ml which the best deal available is 2 for £4.99. and 100ml for £1.99.
Price Comparison - when bought on the 2 for £4.00 offer this solution costs around £2.50 for a 360ml bottle in comparison with:
Boots 360ml - £3.29
Tesco 360ml - £2.00
Asda 360ml - £1.97
Sainsburys 360ml - £2.00
I normally get my large bottle of solution in a supermarket as it is a little cheaper and more convenient as Superdrug isn't nearby. It is tricky to pick up the 100ml bottle though so I use superdrug for my travel sized bottles. The larger bottle is much better value than the travel sized but it's better than paying £40 for suitcase to put a large one in for a short break.
The 100ml is a white bottle with a seal around the lid that screws off. It has a very dark blue label on the front and back. The front label states that it is saline solution, rinses and is for all types of contact lenses.
The back label states its uses, ingredients, warns not to use with chlorine disinfecting tablets and to dispose of within 5 months of opening, the Boots solution needs to be disposed of after 2 months so if you don't use this solution often as I don't this is a factor to consider.
The uses of saline solution
This solution states it is used for:
-Rinsing lenses after cleaning and disinfecting
-Dissolving protein removal tablets
-Daily lens case cleaning
-Heat disinfection of soft lenses
-Inserting your contact lenses
A nurse once told me that this is suitable for cleaning out wounds too but I haven't tried it!
This solution is good, it pours out in drops so is easy to control how much solution comes out of the bottle. It rinses lenses and my lens case well and I found it no better or worse than other solution. Where this solution is a real winner is the two different sizes. I find it very difficult to find a travel size bottle elsewhere so for this reason I will definitely continue to buy this solution.
Summary: One I would recommend
