My Biotrue® Challenge Results

Last month I told you I was embarking on a one-month challenge with some new contact lens solution. I have a confession to make: I set Biotrue®  up to fail. Not intentionally but I wanted to really, really test them out.  I didn't throw out my contacts when I was supposed to and instead, I switched to Biotrue with older contacts to see if everything I'd been reading about was true.

Biotrue multi-purpose is designed to work like your eye. Biotrue® incorporates a lubricant found in your eyes, and is balanced to match the pH of healthy tears. Biotrue® cushions and rehydrates lenses for comfortable wear and provides superior disinfection to keep lenses clean.
It was. And it is.  I found that my older lenses felt like new after cleaning them. They looked new too. No gunk on them.  I was optimistic about the possibilities of having all-day comfort.   Now, I'm not condoning use of lenses over the time period that's recommended by your doctor but, I did it to see how good Biotrue®  worked and I feel like it passed with flying colors.  If it can keep older contacts that clean then, imagine what they can do to contacts when worn as directed?
The other thing is that I suffer from dry eyes. I use artificial tears but in the past, even with those, my contacts were never really comfortable. That's all changed now. Man, I wish I had found this solution before!
I changed my contacts out after 2 weeks and sure enough, I didn't really see a big difference in the change which was great. The next test was when I went to BlogHer this weekend because it meant I'd be wearing my contacts from early in the morning to very late at night. I'd also be wearing makeup all the time and I don't know why but I always felt like my contacts got more uncomfortable with makeup on (maybe this was just all in my head).
Can I tell you that I left my artificial tears in the room all day every day? I didn't need them. At all.  I also felt like the solution itself felt different from others. If you don't believe me, get some Biotrue®  and then pour your regular solution on to your hands and feel the difference.  I equate it to regular water and water that's been filtered with one of those filter thingies for houses (yeah um, you know what I'm talking about, right?).  You don't realize anything's wrong with your water until you try the new slick water without any of the gunk that makes water "hard".
I am a convert and I don't see myself using anything other than Biotrue®  from this point forth. It's amazing how a change as small as this can make a BIG difference. I didn't realize how much discomfort I had until the discomfort was no longer there.  Now, I look forward to hectic busy quiet evenings with eyes that don't feel as if I have boulders in them. Who knew that what you cleaned your contacts with could make such a huge difference?

What do you look forward to at the end of the day?

Seeking Comfort: My Biotrue® Challenge

It is late at night.  I am on Twitter Facebook Blackboard chatting it up doing homework.  I have a slight headache and unfortunately, when I try to take off my glasses to get a little rest from the pressure (I have a big head, ya'll.  Don't judge!) I can't see my screen. This is precisely the reason why I'm taking the Biotrue® Challenge this summer. I am sick of being told that I can wear my contacts for long periods of time but not feeling sufficiently comfortable in them.  By the end of the day, I'm always looking like I've crossed the desert and my eyes are telling the sad, painful story. Sure, I can throw my glasses on but, if there's a way for me to be comfortable in my contacts then I'm all in.

I'm taking this challenge because guess what? It's not like I have to jump through any crazy hoops.  It's simple.  This month I am switching out my old crappy contact lens solution for Biotrue®.

Biotrue® multi-purpose solution dissolves protein and cleans, loosens and removes accumulations of film, debris and deposits from soft contact lenses. Which is a good thing because last night when I took my contacts out I took a good look at it (have you done this recently? Try it and be scared). It looked like a film was over the lens but when I "cleaned" it with my old solution I didn't notice much difference. And that made me wonder how many times I've put gunk back in my eye without even realizing it!  Good thing Biotrue® kills harmful microorganisms on the lens.

This will mean that I no longer have to imagine little tiny baby bacteria reproducing on my corneas.  What's even better than it actually cleaning up the gunk is this formula was designed to work like your eye so it incorporates a lubricant that's already found there.  While your lens is soaking, the formula envelops the lens in a moisture-rich cushion to help the lens remain comfortable throughout the day. Which means that my eyes will still be feeling fresh and comfortable come nightfall. I don't know about you but, I'm excited!

Between Mami Ink, school goofing off and blogging, I spend quite a bit of time in front of the computer and with Mami Ink now demanding even more of my time, taking better care of my eyes has become key.  I mean, it's a major part of how I do my job. So, are you up for the challenge?

What changes are you making to be more comfortable at the end of the day?
