LacriPure, box of 98 5mL preservative-free vials [UNAVAILABLE AT PRESENT]



Product Shortage

The supply of this product has been unpredictable and subject to months-long delays through the second half of 2018.

We are no longer offering this product for sale either for single purchase or recurring orders until we are confident we can get enough of it to fill the orders we receive, and we do not expect that to happen until sometime in 2019. Sometimes it is available direct from the manufacturer (as of this writing, it isn't, but try it anytime - it's meniconwebstore.com). 

For a quick comparison of substitutes, please see this video and matrix.

Or just pick one of the following:

  1. Modudose 0.9% sodium chloride solution: This is the same size and type as LacriPure, but use with contacts is "off label" so please ask your lens provider if they approve this use first. (Note: Modudose is the same as Addipak.)
  2. ScleralFil preservative-free saline solution: This is a buffered preservative-free saline which is pH balanced for comfortable use in the eye, and is designed specifically for use with scleral lenses. It comes in a box of thirty 10mL vials (twice the size of a LacriPure vial).
  3. Purilens Plus preservative-free saline: This is a buffered preservative-free saline which is pH balanced for comfortable use in the eye. It is sold in 4-ounce bottles (box of 3 or box of 12). This is very popular with long-term scleral lens users as the most economical packaging of buffered preservative-free saline.

~Shipping tip!~

To save on shipping, please try to avoid ordering just one box. The difference is huge! You may be paying $10 or more to ship one box (depending where it's going), but only $1 or so more per additional box after that. Use the shipping calculator in the cart to see for yourself.

Description (by Rebecca)

Menicon is the first company to go out and get a unit dose preservative free saline (albeit unbuffered) labeled for ocular use, and moreover, specifically for use filling scleral lenses (among other things). We applaud this step - it's about time someone recognized scleral lens users as a market in their own right - and encourage you to give them your business. For doctors and patients, it's definitely a more user-friendly approach than finding saline sold for nebulizers!

Ingredients: Purified water and sodium chloride.

Limitations

  • Not large enough for those who use a lot in lens rinsing/filling
  • Unbuffered saline, not tolerated equally well by all users
  • Expense

Alternatives to consider

  • Modudose (larger 15mL / 0.51oz sizing, and stands up on its own)
  • Purilens Plus Saline (buffered)

For expirations of current stock, please call, email, or use the live chat button.

On and off-label use

Please note that several lens solutions that are routinely recommended by doctors for use with PROSE or sclerals are not labeled that way by the manufacturer so for you this may constitute an 'off label' use. Please make sure your lens provider / eye care professional approves any solution you are using.

Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

LacriPure is a unit dose non-preserved, 0.9% NaCl (normal saline) solution indicated for rinsing soft lens (hydrophilic), rigid gas permeable, hybrid and hard contact lens prior to insertion. The rinsing removes debris and bacteria following proper lens disinfection. This sterile, normal saline solution can be used to fill the concave posterior surface of large diameter (scleral) lenses prior to insertion to provide a more natural environment than currently approved multipurpose solutions which contain preservatives and osmolarity agents that are not designed to be held against the cornea for extended periods of time. 

Ingredients

Sodium chloride and water.
