Lenses I wear for more than 15 years - right after high school I went to the ophthalmologist and he picked me lenses and solution. My first solution was "CyClean", it was difficult to find on sale, and I went to the more affordable and most popular solution for lenses "ReNu", which can be bought in any pharmacy.
So I was faithful to him for many years, until the price started to grow, and to pay more than 500 rubles for a large bottle of solution is very expensive. And then I thought of a more budget alternative.
My requirements to the solution for contact lenses:
I could not find a solution on the website, [link], where I usually order lenses, due to the large range I was just dizzying. Based on the good reviews, I stopped in the contact lens solution Limasol 2000 from the Russian company MEDSTAR.
Purchase THEM glavlinza, Moscow
The cost without the discount 230 rubles per 240 ml
240 ml - it is the largest amount, and ReNu has a larger volume 360 ml, which I usually buy.
Also available are bottles 60 ml and 120 ml is a very convenient format for traveling.
230 rubles - very low cost compared to ReNu the same amount - the price on the website 410 RUB.

The solution was Packed in a cardboard box.
The box design is very nice, if I saw on the shelf at the drugstore, be sure to pay attention to it.
On the box is the necessary information for the initial familiarization with the product:
A bottle of durable opaque plastic matte, made with high quality. Have renew the bottle is transparent and soft. The disadvantage of the bottle is its transparency - it is difficult to track the remaining amount of the solution.
The cap has a tamper-evident plastic ring, a tapered spout for easy dispensing of the solution into the container.
Manual out of the box:
water, sodium chloride, borate buffer, EDTA, poloxamer, polihexanide 0,0005%
I do not understand the structures of solutions for contact lenses, but I see that there is no care component, some users even complained about the lack, for example, hyaluronic acid. Need it or not is debatable, because there is information that it promotes the growth of undesirable microorganisms.
Method of application:
• Daily after removing the lenses, apply 4-5 drops of solution on the lens, gently wipe in a circular motion on the palm of your hand for 10-30 seconds.• Rinse the lens with solution and place in storage container with fresh solution LIMASOL-2000.
DAILY IS RECOMMENDED TO REPLACE THE SOLUTION IN THE CONTAINER IS FRESH!
at room temperature.

The solution itself is like water - transparent and ,most importantly, odorless.
Impressions of the application
A little about myself: eyesight began to deteriorate in adolescence, at first, wore glasses, but after school under the supervision of an ophthalmologist switched to contact lenses. Today my vision -4,5, lens wear 17 years. The last 15 vision is stable. Surgery for vision correction can not do, because there are contraindications.
Today my lens is 1-mesyachny replacement is Baush and Lomb Softlens, the radius of curvature of 8.6, use them for several years, tried other lenses, but return to them again and experiment more don't want to.
Wear lenses every day for 12 hours.
I don't know whether to attribute my eyes to the category of sensitive, I think, everyone who wears contacts years eyes are sensitive. Yes, sometimes makes my eyes water or turn red, sometimes react to cosmetics (mascara) and not all lenses are suitable for me, so consider yourself to this category.
Their usual solution of Renu I used on the machine - poured fresh solution into the container, removed the lenses and without a mechanical cleaning put them in a container overnight, i.e., for 8-12 hours. In the morning put them on, and the container was rinsed with fresh solution and left to dry.
The same thing I did with the new solution Limasol 2000, ignoring recommendations for cleaning lenses, and in the morning when putting on the lens I felt the sand in my eyes! Looked at the lens - and it is dirty and lint. With Renu is rolled, the lens itself is perfectly clean. And with the solution Limasol 2000 I had to Tinker. Now I take off the lens and clean it as indicated in the instructions.
With proper use of the solution according to the instructions any more problems did not arise - putting on the lenses I don't feel sand in the eyes, lenses soft and nourished and the eyes are not perceptible. Lenses stand all 12 hours socks, in the evening, I remove them without problems (it happens when excessive dryness lenses just stick to your eye like a suction Cup and without moisturizing drops off, with a solution Ликосол2000 this was not).
Bottle of 240 ml was enough for me, a little less than a month, it is a pity that the manufacturer produces solutions with higher volume.
Trying new contact lens solution I was afraid, because I was afraid of negative reactions on the eye, but everything went smoothly and the solution Limasol 2000 I will buy more, pity that it is rarely seen for sale, and will have to order through Image.
Thank you for your attention!
