1. a pH that matches tears - which fall into a range of 7.3 - 7.7 - Biotrue has a pH of 7.5 and helps reduce stinging and discomfort;
2. a lubricant that keeps lenses moist and comfortable - hyaluronan is found naturally in the body and eyes and can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water to help keep lenses moist and comfortable by forming a moisture-rich cushion that lasts all day;
3. and a special formulation that helps keep certain beneficial tear proteins active - as well as dissolve and remove denatured proteins which can build up on lenses and cause blurred vision. For comfort that lasts throughout the day and into the night!
I could wear contacts but don't because I have this phobia about sticking my fingers in my eyes so I had my friend Wendy test drive this solution and here's what she had to say:
"Since contacts are something you stick in your eyes, you would think I would be really careful to keep mine clean but I admit to having a bad habit of not cleaning them properly or using inappropriate liquids to clean or store them when I find myself without my solution (make a note, you can but really shouldn't use vodka). As a result I often wander around with stinging and/or blurry vision.
Turns out, not only is vodka a bad cleanser, so is my usual solution when compared to Biotrue! I now know that the sign of a good product is when I no longer feel or am aware my contact lenses and have to think about it for a couple of seconds to remember actually putting them in!"
Available now at drug, mass and grocery stores - from now on, all vodka is for drinking!
