Bausch and Lomb ReNu Lubricating and Rewetting Drops Review

All those who wear lenses suffer from certain dryness on the surface of the lenses that causes excessive blinking/irritation of the eye. This could be due to several reasons – super windy day, the fan in the room blows air straight to your eyes, your eyes by nature tend to get dry, time to dispose the lens off, or just plain dry eye or irritation in the eye with the lenses on.  I have dealt with all of the above and finally after getting annoyed, went to my nearest optician and he suggested that I buy these drops. When lenses are worn throughout the day, they develop a layer of protein from the eyes and tend to get dry; these drops help in lubricating the lenses. They make the lenses softer, moisten them and minimize dryness.

I have been using these eye drops for more than 4 years now and I absolutely love them. I use them right after I wear the lens and/or whenever I feel my lenses are getting dry and they start to irritate my eyes. This is one of the best products of ReNu and it’s a shame it isn’t launched in India yet. The only thing I don’t like about these eye drops is the extremely short shelf life.  Once opened, it needs to be used in about 1-2 months maximum, after which the remaining solution needs to be disposed off. These eye drops are not used that often, so during disposal, almost half of the bottle goes to waste, but that doesn’t stop me from purchasing these eye drops since they have worked wonders for me.

  1. I want this.thanks for the revu Preeti.though i use monthly disposable lense, i feel there are protien deposits still..i use my lenses for 12-14 hrs a day..and naturally it starts drying up in centralized AC rooms..
    do we get these online.. ?

  2. hey thanks so much for this. My new monthly disposables make my eyes really dry and its irritating the life out of me that my eyes get blurred and I have to put so much effort in working on the laptop.

    I think this would be a wonderful product to use. Firslty, is there an alternative in india that i can buy – either online or from the store?. Are these available in the US? if yes, I can get someone to get me these

    1. These are available in the states. I couldn’t find an alternative in India for these, i’ve been searching for more than 2 years, honestly.

      1. Using the same B&L ones Nidhi. I lclean them every morning before using and within an hour or so they get all misty and blurred. sometimes i feel its better off without them. Since i have short sight even my glases are not that effective..

  3. Hi Preiti, thz seem so good, I wish thz wer available here 😐 i ll look fr it on ebay now 🙂
    i just end up using the lens solution only after 2-3 hours to re wet my eyes wen i have my lenses on

  4. Nice review Preeti. I have also used these before my marriage when I was in Kathmandu They were easily available there but in the course of time almost forgot. Thanks for reminding will surely get them as now with housework my eyes irritate me a lot

  5. I too face the same issues with lenses hence I use a lubricating drop named ‘Blink’ to eliminate any protein deposition. It works well for me and also it doesn’t have a short shelf life so no wastage 🙂 It’s easily available with opticians in Delhi 🙂

    1. will check to see if any of the opticians in Hyderabad sell them. I hink regular pharmacies might be worth trying at too..

  6. Hi.. I hav been searchin dis online in all d sites! I cud not find it:( can u pls put up d link from ver u can buy it! I found it in amazon but the price is Rs.2582+ delivery charges!vch other rewetting drop r good and available in india?
