Switch to OPTI-FREE REPLENISH by ALCON


Share
I have been a contact lens user for 18 long years already. Literally I can claim that almost half my life, I know the discomfort a contact lens user experiences just to avoid wearing glasses. From the protein and dust my eyes collected the entire day sometimes causing irritation to the uneasiness of having dry eyes because of extreme temperature in our surroundings.

But amidst these, I still prefer to wear contact lenses - I like complications, REALLY!

Probably you will agree that one of the worst thing that could happen to you is when you have your contacts on whilst you are on a holiday trip and you suddenly forget to bring your contact lens solution with you.

Yup! This happened to me 2 weeks ago. And who came to the rescue - My close friend who for some reason is not really a regular contact lens user but has a solution with him (ever reliable). I am not even sure if he brought his contacts because I never saw him on it.

Disclaimer - This is not a paid advertisement. I am purely sharing an excellent experience with the solution I borrowed and eventually asked my friend if I can have it. Yes, I am the diva of cheapo!

The solution is called OPTI-FREE REPLENISH by ALCON.

What makes it different from my previous solutions is the fact that I really feel fresh and replenished when I wear my contacts on. With my old product, I felt some bumps (not always 'though) whenever I wear my contacts and had to eventually remove and wash it again. Troublesome if you are rushing for work, really! But what really made the difference is the moisture I get all day long. Before I had to apply lubricants due to dryness, but with Opti-Free Replenish, it feels like your contacts were moisturized the night before.

I have only used the product for 2 weeks but I guarantee that I will make the big switch. I also have no idea what the ingredients are, all I care about is that the product makes my eyes feel good all day long.

Hi Fierce Enrico!!
Can you get this from the usual Optical shops?
How much would it cost?

I am only using cosmetic contacts and yes, I sometimes experience the bumps when I wear it...

Nice blog page by the way...

Hi Pole!

My son's optometrist recommended Opti-Free Replenish. She said this keeps lenses comfortable the whole day because it contains a new ingredient called tearglyde which keeps the lens clean and wet daw. Sobra tuwa nya at the difference this solution made, real comfortable daw and he doesnt need to use lubricant drops na. It's available at optical shops in a big 300ml bottle for P 290. Try it you'll like it!

Hi Eric! Im from ALCON Phils. and belongs to the Contact Lens Care Division. Thank You so much for giving us a fantastic review!
Yes you are right, the Opti Free Replenish gives you longer moisture because it provides 14-hour wettability that keeps you comfortable even at d end of the day. It also has an optimum cleaning efficiency and biocompatible disinfection. Opti Free Replenish gives everything that you need to achieve patient's satisfaction and comfort.
The product is already availabe in any optical shops at P 290.oo per 300ml bottle. You may also check the website at www.opti-free.com.
Again, thank you for your generous remarks and for sharing this great experience to others. More Power!

I used to wear colored contacts just for fun but It will only be comfortable for 6 hrs the most. Instead of looking better with colored contact I look like an addict because my eyes will turn read after four hours.

After I've read this blog I tried Opti-free Replenish. YES! its Fierce as Eric puts it. I can now wear my Contacts the whole day even till night gimmik! I love it!

Thanks for the tip Eric!

Hi Eric. I completely agree with your review, but I just want to air out a complaint about a retailer selling this product.

@Yasmin A. from ALCON Phils.:

Today, I bought 2 60mL bottles of Alcon's Opti-Free Replenish from 'THE OPTICAL SHOP, INC.' in Robinson's Place Manila for Php 100 each. When I found out that the said product was only available in stores in a 300 mL bottle, I inspected the bottles I bought further. I noticed that under the Php 100 sticker, there was a note stating, "Professional Sample. Not for sale". Does this mean I was cheated? I find it really infuriating, because I've been shopping in this store for a few years now. The thing is that I don't have a chance to return the items, because I'm leaving the country in a few days and I actually need the bottles.

This message isn't a joke, btw. I have the official receipt from 'The Optical Shop, Inc.' as proof. I hope someone can enlighten me. I could be wrong and the said shop was indeed allowed to sell the samples (but I highly doubt that).
