Lacripure shortage

The manufacturer has increased our order limit but we still are not fully stocked. Order limits may apply while in stock. We will continue to fill subscriptions. 

Original post

Lacripure has been subject to manufacturer shortages for a few months now. They are limiting purchase quantities, and as a result we have not been able to keep it in stock. We are hopeful that this situation will improve soon, but as yet, we have no specific timing estimates for it to be available again.

Meantime, we will continue filling existing subscription orders on schedule from our reserve stock, and we may or may not have any excess stock for sale from time to time.

Watch out for scalper prices on Amazon and elsewhere. Ask your doctor about alternative products rather than overpaying.

You may be able to purchase Lacripure direct from the manufacturer depending what they have currently. You will need to create an account in order to log in and see if it is currently in stock. They will also have the best pricing available.

Alternative salines

We recommend trying Scleralfil or Nutrifill when Lacripure isn't available. Both of those are 10mL (twice the size of Lacripure), and they are a little different as they are buffered to match the pH to the eye. 

If you specifically need an unbuffered saline (i.e. 0.9% sodium chloride solution) there are no alternative products labeled specifically for scleral lens filling, but many people use Addipak, which is sold for respiratory use. It is quite acidic (low pH) so check with your doctor before making this substitution.
