"Plasma" Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses/Solutions
by Melody Stephenson
Am in the process of finding the right RX/type of RGP multi-focal lens. Today, I picked up the second type for trial. These are "plasma" treated and I was told I needed a special solution for these. I am a bit confused as to what "plasma" really means and as to what solution I can use. I picked up some Boston Simplus Multi-Purpose solution today and was told that was okay to use. My questions: After I rinse the lens with water, can I use a drop of this solution on the lens to lubricate it prior to inserting in my eye?..or can saline solution (such as for soft lenses)be used on the lens prior to insertion? Can I use ANY re-wetting eye drop that is made for RGP's? Does anyone have any suggestions on any other type/brand of solution that works well for the plasma treated RGP lense? Thanks!
