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.
