Description (by Rebecca)
We originally added Unique pH to The Dry Eye Shop's scleral lens care products specifically because of its compatibility with the new Hydra-PEG coating. For optimal performance of scleral lenses it's generally accepted that digital (i.e. rub) cleaning on a daily basis is necessary, not just overnight disinfection. However, Lobob ESC, the gold standard "rub" cleaner for scleral lenses, is not compatible with Hydra-PEG (a relatively new lens coating that improves lens wettability).
Unique pH is a multi-purpose solution that is approved by the Hydra-PEG makers for their coating, and it can be used for both rub cleaning and overnight soaking. At this point it's quite popular for daily disinfection of sclerals.
I will always stick with hydrogen peroxide (Clear Care) as the best way to disinfect overnight. But I find Unique pH very handy for travel - traveling with peroxide is just not practical. So I tend to use it often when I'm on the road. It's a very good product.
SAFETY NOTE: As with ALL multi-purpose solutions, DO NOT put this solution in the 'bowl' of your scleral lens. It is strictly for cleaning and disinfection, not filling.

Unique pH ® is a highly effective and well-respected multipurpose solution for gas permeable contact lenses.
Soaking your gas permeable contact lenses in Unique pH ® removes dirt, protein deposits and debris. No separate daily cleaner is required.
This solution conditions lenses by adjusting to the eye's natural tear pH to enhance the wettability and comfort of gas permeable contact lenses on insertion. This formula is designed to provide a soothing effect during lens wear.
The solution disinfects lenses using antimicrobial agents, which destroy harmful microorganisms (germs), commonly found on the surfaces of lenses.
Unique pH ® Multi Purpose Solution may also be used to dilute a daily protein remover for simultaneous enzymatic cleaning during conditioning.
Travel-friendly bottle size for carry-on convenience. Unique pH ® is available in a convenient travel size designed to meet TSA guidelines for carrying liquids on board an aircraft. The Unique pH ® Travel Pack contains a two fluid ounce (60 mL) bottle of Unique pH ® and a lens case.
Unique pH ® is supplied in a sterile 4 fl. oz. (120 mL) or 2.5 fl.oz. (75 mL) size. Each unit carton includes a free lens case. Unique-pH multi-purpose solution is a proprietary sterile, aqueous solution buffered to approximate the pH and tonicity of the eye. It contains hydroxypropyl guar, a proprietary wetting/conditioning polymer system, polyethylene glycol, tetronic (tetronic is a registered trademark of basf) 1304, boric acid, propylene glycol, and is preserved with polyquad (polyquaternium-1) (0.0011%), and edetate disodium (0.01%)
The containers and cartons are marked with lot number and expiration date.
