    Description (Rebecca's)

    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 quickly became 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. At this point it is one of several preservative-free saline options, but it remains a top favorite for many scleral lens users for the comfort it provides, the practical packaging and cost-effective size.

    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.

    Alternatives? 

    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. See video for comparison.

    For more information, please see our Product Guide to Preservative Free Saline Options.

    Limitations

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

    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.

    • Reduced sharpness of vision (visual acuity)

    If you notice any of the above problem, 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 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.

    Perfect!

    Grateful to find this product still available at an affordable price so I can continue wearing contacts. My sensitive eyes can't handle saline preservatives. Bottles are a convenient size & the order process was quick/easy. Very happy!

    PuriLens unpreserved saline 24 count

    I have been using this unpreserved saline since Unisol was discontinued. Rebecca provided communication to interested parties to resolve this sudden loss of a vital eye solution. She championed an order for me as I was on my last bottle of Unisol with no additional vendors of unpreserved saline available. I was comforted and amazed this business felt the need to take up this quest. I use PuriLens many times each day. The details provided on contents and method of buffering clarified any reservations on substituting this product.

    Regular user of PuriLens Plus Saline

    I have been using PuriLens Plus Saline for several years after no longer being able to purchase a preservative-free saline solution locally. I was so happy to discover this product and the ease of ordering it online. The shipments have always arrived promptly and in good shape. I really hope that The Dry Eye Shop continues to make it available for many years to come! I'm not sure what I would do without it.
