    Description (by Rebecca)

    Updated May 2022

    Purilens Plus Saline has been on the market for about 20 years. However, it was not nationally known until 2016. When Unisol 4 was discontinued - followed soon after by Simply Saline, another borate-buffered preservative-free saline - Purilens Plus quickly became the go-to product for people seeking buffered preservative-free saline, including for use filling scleral lenses. In fact, it was the only equivalent on the US market until Bausch & Lomb introduced Scleralfil in 2017. (A few years later, Contamac introduced Nutrifill, another type of buffered saline, which is a particular favorite.)

    Filling scleral lenses was an "off-label" use of Purilens for. along time, ust as it had been for Unisol 4. Recently, Purilens Plus has been FDA cleared for filling sclerals. At the same time, however, there have been studies that show a concerning level of risk of contamination in open Purilens bottles. Many physicians recommend not using Purilens for filing scleral lenses, at least not more than 48 hours after opening a bottle. Please consult your scleral lens specialist for instructions! Safety matter!

    Purilens remains a popular product for many scleral lens users because it is the most cost-effective buffered preservative-free saline. For those who have frequent rinsing needs, it's a particularly helpful product. 

    Alternatives?

    • ScleralFil, a borate-buffered saline which is sold in 10mL single-use vials (box of 30), is the only exact equivalent on the market at present.
    • Nutrifill is a highly rated phosphate-buffered saline with electrolytes.
    • Unbuffered salines such as LacriPure, VibrantVue and the off-label nebulizer salines such as Addipak and Modudose, are options for many users. 

    For more information, please see our Product Guide to Preservative Free Saline Options. Please note that this is not entirely up to date! Please call with questions.

      Limitations

      Depending what you are using it for, some users may not use up the entire bottle within the 15 days recommended by the manufacturer. Please put safety first. Preservative-free solutions are not protected against contamination. Ask your scleral lens specialist for guidance!

      Actions

      Contraindictions

      None known.

      Warnings

      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. 

      Precautions

      • 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

      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.

      PuriLens Plus Saline -- a Dry Eye Shop Highlight

      It's what I need. A few years ago I could not find saline anywhere other than in those 1/100th ounce things. I searched, found Dry Eye Shop, discovered they had a saline product, bought it, discovered it worked, and have been buying and using it sinice.
