I can still remember being a young girl in the late 1980s ; standing in my family’s kitchen, bending backwards (literally) so that my mother could place small pieces of plastic in my eyes. I thought these plastic bits were magic. They kept me from being called “four eyes”. They allowed me to shove my plastic framed, thick lens glasses in a drawer to collect dust. They made playing and swimming fun again.
They changed my life.
Now I’m not such a young girl anymore, but I’ve always kept contact lenses on hand at all times. Thankfully the technology behind them has changed and correcting my vision ‘invisibly’ is even easier with monthly soft contact lenses.
With monthly lenses I could finally stop worrying about ripping or losing a lens taking it in and out every day. Anything that makes me worry less is a miracle. And, while I love the low maintenance, it does have side effects. Age, stress and long hours spent staring at a computer screen wreak havoc with my eyes – and my lenses. At the end of the day, when it comes time for bed, my eyes are bloodshot, dry and sore. I always thought “Saline is saline. Brands don’t matter.” and bought whatever was on sale or available. Then, time and time again, not only did the moisture ware off within hours – I would also wince any time I used the solution because it would burn my eyes. It was like I’d doused my eyeballs in alcohol. But I didn’t think anything was wrong. I’d use everything from the store brand to Opti-free; they all dry out. They all burn. After a while I just thought that’s how it goes. It’s the price you pay. I didn’t realize there was a better choice.
That’s why I’m making the decision to switch to Biotrue® multi-purpose solution.
Biotrue multi-purpose contains a lubricant found in your eyes, and its balanced to match the pH of healthy tears. Biotrue cushions and rehydrates lenses for comfortable wear up to 20 hours. Plus, it kills harmful microorganisms on the lens that can cause corneal damage and vision loss. That’s great news for me and my eyes. Now I’ll look forward to rehydrating at night – instead of dreading it.
