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.
Bausch and Lomb ReNu Lubricating & Rewetting Drops Claim To:
- Moisten lenses to minimize dryness.
- Rewetting solution makes contact lens wear more comfortable.
Right after wearing the lenses, put two or three drops into each eye on the contact lenses and blink several times or whenever needed.
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.
If you wear lenses throughout the day, you will love these eye drops. Trust me; you will be hooked on to these.
NOTE: These drops are not meant to treat dry eye conditions. Do not use it for other than its intended purpose.
Approximately Rs. 250 for 8 ml.
