    Description (by Rebecca)

    Purilens Plus Saline, while it's been on the market for ~15 years, was not well known until a few years ago when Unisol 4 and Simply Saline (the only equivalents) were both discontinued. It is now the go-to product for people seeking buffered preservative-free saline, including for off-label use filling scleral lenses. For quite some time, Purilens was the only buffered preservative free saline on the US market, until Bausch & Lomb introduced ScleralFil in 2017, in boxes of 30 10mL vials.

    We never actually sold Unisol 4 here at the DryEyeShop, but when Unisol went away and the only viable alternative, Purilens Plus, was not available in drugstores, we began stocking Purilens here as a service to our many customers who use PROSE or scleral lenses. It's been quite an adventure, as those who experienced the severe product shortages in 2016 can attest to! We are thankful that the supply has been steady for a long time now and grateful to the relatively small company that has worked hard to ensure this product stays on the market.


    ScleralFil, which is sold in 10mL single-use vials, is the only exact equivalent on the market at present. Unbuffered salines (i.e. sodium chloride solution 0.9%) such as LacriPure and the off-label nebulizer salines such as Modudose, are options for many users. We sell all of the different types here. The following video compares them:

    Common uses of this product

    • TRAVEL: This is a TSA friendly size! Please note, however, that TSA rules apply only within the USA. See our Travel Guide for more information.


    Depending what you are using it for, you may not use up the entire bottle within the 15 days recommended by the manufacturer.

    This 2-oz MINI size is expensive for daily use. If you can get it on a discount, it works out fine. Otherwise, the 4oz bottle are a better deal (unless you just can't use them within two weeks).

    Description (manufacturer's)

    Rinsing with PuriLens solution removes loosened debris from the lens surface prior to cleaning and disinfecting with the PuriLens system. 

    Keeps the lens wet (hydrated) during PuriLens System cleaning and disinfection. 


    PuriLens solution is indicated for use in rinsing, PuriLens system cleaning and disinfection, and storage of SOFT (hydrophilic) contact lenses. 


    None known.


    PuriLens solution is sterile prior to opening. Because it contains no preservatives, it will not remain sterile indefinitely after opening and, therefore, should not be used as an eye drop. Do not touch the tip of the container to any surface since this may contaminate the solution. DO NOT USE IF SOLUTION IS CLOUDY OR DISCOLORED. 


    • Never reuse solution
    • Do not transfer saline solution to another container
    • Fresh solution should be used for every cleaning/disinfection cycle
    • Do not store lenses in water, or in a non-sterile solution
    • Use before expiration date stamped on container
    • After breaking the original seal, keep container tightly closed when not in use
    • Discard bottle and contents 15 days after opening. Record dated opened in space provided on bottle label
    • Never touch the tip of container to any surface
    • Store solution at room temperature

    Adverse reactions

    • The following problems may occur
    • Eye stinging, burning, or itching (irritation)
    • Excessive watering (tearing) of the eyes
    • Unusual eye secretions
    • Redness of the eyes
    • Reduced sharpness of vision (visual acuity)
    • Blurred vision
    • Sensitivity to light (photophobia) 
    • Dry eyes

    If you notice any of the above problems, remove and examine your lenses. If the problem stops and the lenses appear to be undamaged, rinse your lenses using PuriLens solution, then clean and disinfect the lenses in your PuriLens unit and reinsert them. If the problem continues or a lens appears to be damaged, IMMEDIATELY remove your lenses and IMMEDIATELY consult your eye care practitioner. Do not reinsert a damaged lens. 

    If any of the above symptoms occur, a serious condition such as infection, corneal ulcer, neovascularization or iritis may be present. Seek immediate professional identification of the problem and treatment to avoid serious eye damage. 

    Directions for use

    Inside the bottle cap is a molded insert that will pierce the container. To open the bottle, first remove the cap and discard the white plastic restraining ring. Avoid touching the tip of the bottle. Replace the cap then press down and turn the cap clockwise to pierce the container. 


    Rinse, clean, and disinfect your lenses each time you remove them. 

    Rinse your lens thoroughly with PuriLens solution by holding the lens between the forefinger and thumb of one hand and directing a steady stream of PuriLens solution onto the lens for ten (10) seconds. 

    Always rinse the same lens, right to left, first to avoid mix-ups and put that lens into the correct chamber of the lens storage case. 

    Repeat the procedure for the second lens.

    Love the smaller bottles, but...

    I love the smaller bottles, but this product is crazy expensive. I’ve never had trouble with the 4oz bottles going through airport security, but the 2oz size is GREAT for traveling and for smaller purses when I go out. I still use the 4oz for everyday, but switch to the 2oz when traveling or going out. It freaks me out a little that the bottle isn’t full, but the explanation for that makes sense. All in all, I like the smaller bottles. I just wish they weren’t so expensive.
