    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!

      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 whit plastic restraining ring. Avoid touching the tip of the bottle. Replace the cap then press down ad 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 Purines 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.

      Reliable Rinsing Solution

      I use Purilens as a reliable, sterile rinsing solution for scleral lenses and to wet swabs that I use to wipe off the mucus/cruft that sometimes accumulates on my eyelids. I find the four ounce bottles are easy to hold and squeeze to use. You need to first remove the cap, then remove and discard the white plastic ring around the neck of the bottle. Screw the cap back on all the way to puncture the spout before using a bottle for the first time. I go through the bottles quickly, so I don't need to worry about the 15 day expiration once opened. Before I had scleral lenses, I'd write the expiration date on the bottle to ensure I didn't use it after expiration, but now I go through a bottle in one or two days, so I don't worry about that. If you don't have a big need for sterile saline, this 4 ounce bottle isn't cost effective, as you have to throw out any that have been open more than 15 days. The one downside to these bottles is that they exceed the 3.4 ounce air travel restrictions for carry on luggage. I claim "medically necessary liquids" when I fly, and have never had a problem getting Purilens 4 oz through the gate for domestic travel. If you don't want to deal with that, Purilens does come in a smaller bottle, but it is more expensive for the same amount of saline.

      Always there to save the day....

      Started wearing scleral contacts last year and couldn't find any of the solutions needed to care for them. Did a quick internet search and found the Dry Eye Shop and they had everything I needed and everything I could hope to imagine to need. PuriLens solution is not sold anywhere near me and I have to order it and I run through it regularly. When I saw that the Dry Eye Shop sold a 24 pack, I clicked immediately. And the product arrived in a timely manner< which was extremely helpful. I will be ordering again.
