    About Unique pH Multi-Purpose Solution

    • Multi-purpose solution for RGP lenses
    • Compatible with Hydra-PEG lens coating
    • Available in 4oz (120mL) or 2.5oz (75mL) size
    • Includes a free lens case

    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.

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

    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 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 ® 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.

    better for wetting than storing

    Been wearing rgp lenses for about 50 years. As I got older, Lobob became the only product that allowed me to wear them comfortably. Since that's been discontinued, I've struggled. I tried the Hydra-Peg lenses and they made no difference. In fact, it was worse, because you're not supposed to use strong cleaners that remove protein build up, as that removes the Hydra Peg coating. I tried the Tangible solution and this one. Finally I just started cleaning them again with my last bottle of Lobob, and soaking them in Clear Care (in other words, removing the Hydra Peg coating). That has helped, but it's not as quick and simple as Lobob's sytem. I use the Menicon just for wetting, as I prefer that to the Tangible solution, which was too watery. Using this for cleaning and storing the lenses was not enough, so I need 3 products ( a cleaner, the Clear Care and this). I guess when I travel, I'll soak them in this or wear glasses.

    Hi Marybeth

    Thanks for posting a review. I'm so sorry the Unique hasn't worked out for what you needed. I totally sympathize with this... Lobob ESC has been a huge loss. If you've ever used Miraflow successfully (that was the last of the strong daily cleaners) we are hoping to bring in a generic shortly. Lobob used to make one of those generics as well, called SofPro2 if you happen to be familiar with it. Look for Sereine extra strength daily cleaner - we are expecting some in about a week. You might be able to get it from myeyesupply.com.

    Looking forward to seeing some better cleaners on the market... I have been beating that drum with manufacturers nonstop for about two years now!

    Can't open new safety cap

    I've given the product only 3 stars due to the new and definitely NOT improved safety cap. After I nearly sprained my hand to open it, I gave it to my 6ft. 180 lb. male friend. He couldn't get and it reached for a pair of retractable mouth pliers to pry it open. This is what it has come to now. Clearly Menicon has confused its customer base (often older individuals, those with health conditions and/or disabilities) with American strongman Brian Shaw. P.S. I just called Menicon and got a sympathetic customer service rep who can't open the bottles either and has gotten many complaints. The rep will pass my complaint along to Quality Control. QC is working on a fix but not until a new production phase (whenever that is).

    Hi Valerie! Boy do I feel your pain. I had to use a towel to open my last one. We'll all be happier when the new version comes out :) I love Menicon though, definitely people I can rely on to take any input very seriously, and just based on your description I bet I know who you spoke with!
