Phenomenal Product

These are the absolute BEST drops I have ever used. My eye doctor gave me about 6 different ones to try, and this one is the ONLY one I will use on a daily basis. My eyes make tears but no lubricant. If I need more lubrication I occasionally use Refresh Celluvisc-but Retain is my go-to drop for EVERY DAY use. Please continue to stock it as it is hard to find in mainstream pharmacies. Phenomenal Product!!!

Improves Quality of Tear Layer

I wear scleral contact lenses to combat the dry eyes and keratoconus correction. They are the only contacts I could wear more than 2 hours. I still struggle with not being able to maintain moisture on the top surface of the lens which leads to some discomfort, vision distortion and sometimes loss of saline pocket behind the lens. I use these drops at night and 15 minutes before lens insertion to improve the tear quality and reduce evaporation. This has yielded the longest lasting relief. I still use other drops periodically through the day but less frequently. I find the Retaine formula can cause some cloudiness if used too often while wearing contacts.

These drops make a huge difference!

I took a chance and ordered these drops. I feel as though I've tried almost every drop on the market. I hadn't heard of these, though.

Good Product

I was pleasantly surprised by how soothing these feel. I currently use Freshkote and Restasis and I do wear (regular) soft contact lenses about 70% of the time with no difficulty. I purchased this product on Amazon while ordering Freshkote. I use the product quite sporadically.
