best contact solution

Asahi Kasei LENS COAT

This is seriously the best contact solution I have ever used – and I’ve used almost all the ones that are out there. I know all my optometrist friends will *gasp* at finding out that I wear DAILY contacts for up to a MONTH. =/ Before, I could hardly wear them for a week because the contact solutions that I’ve used (ReNu, Clear Care, Complete, Opti-Free, Walmart brand, Target brand, etc.) never cleaned my contacts in a way where they felt ‘new.’ When I moved back to Japan last year, my friend Ai introduced me to this solution and told me it’s the best she’s tried (and she’s tried most of the Japanese brands). I gave it a shot and WOW, LOVE. So I know I’m not supposed to wear daily contacts for more than a day, but with this solution, the contacts feel clean and fresh like they’ve just been opened. I’ve been doing it for awhile now and my eyes haven’t worsened any (knock on wood). I’m not saying you should wear your daily contacts for as long as I do, but if you’re looking for a solution that really gives you that clean feeling, then I totally suggest this. Until I get lasik, I won’t use anything else!

You can buy it at any drugstore/grocery store in Japan for about $12-15 for a 500ml bottle.

tokyostargirl gives this 5/5 stars*****

      I know! I haven’t seen them at the Japanese stores here either, so I think you can just get it in Japan.

    Anyway to get it here in the states. Perhaps online or something?

      Hi Candice! I have never seen it online (but I’ve never really looked for it). If I ever see it online, I’ll let you know. If you ever go to Japan, make sure you pick some up!

    I am totally going to scold you for wearing your daily contact lens for more than a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!! and for promoting a contact lens solution so that you can extend the wear of a contact lens beyond its proper wear time!!!
