Buy Renew contact lens solution online and find out whether it is safe to use.
Bausch and Lomb's Renu brand (as it is actually called rather than "renew contact lens solution" which is what people tend to type into a search engine) multipurpose contact lens solution had a worldwide recall back in 2006.
This was following an investigation into over 100 cases of Fusarium Keratitis, a serious eye infection which, besides causing pain and sensitivity to light, can also make a person go blind. The FDA and the Centers for Disease Control linked 30 cases of Fusarium Keratitis to possible use of Renu contact lens solution containing MoistureLoc and over 1.5 million bottles of solution were withdrawn from sale.
I personally never had a problem with the solution and found the "MoistureLoc" super comfortable, but I had to wait over 6 months for new supplies to arrive in Cyprus.
While some people were too afraid to use Renew contact lens solution again, I bought some as soon as it returned to the shelves and I still find it supremely comfortable and easy to use.
I'd even go so far to say it is the best contact lens solution for me, having tried several other brands, while waiting for Bausch and Lomb to change the formula of Renu, now called Renu Fresh.
It cleans, rinses, disinfects and removes protein every day and cushions your lenses in a comfortable film of moisture so that you feel like you're wearing a "fresh" pair of lenses all the time.And if you have light sensitive eyes like me, then Renu comes in a Sensitive form too!
You can buy discount Renu contact lens solution from a number of retailers online. The cheapest price I have found to date is at Vision Direct where a large 355ml bottle costs just $9.99. You get a free lens case included with the order too.
And the latest stocks of Renu now come in a clear bottle, meaning you can see exactly how much solution you have left at any time.
My 355ml bottle usually lasts me around 3 months and, although it is a no rub solution, I even use it to gently rub my lenses when I take them out at night; so it's great value for money too!
