New Contact Lens Product: PeroxiClear

PeroxiClear

There is a new hydrogen peroxide contact lens cleaning system out by Bausch and Lomb called PeroxiClear.  I have started seeing it on store shelves.  Hydrogen peroxide does a great job disinfecting and cleaning lenses and is a good option for those who suffer from allergies or are sensitive to other multi-purpose contact lens solutions.  The special case included with the bottle has a neutralizing disk that converts the hydrogen peroxide into saline, so that when you open the case in the morning, it is safe to put the lenses right into your eyes.  One feature of this product is that it neutralizes the hydrogen peroxide in a shorter period of time (4 hours) than other brands on the market.  Seems to be another good option for contact lens care, for both soft and gas perm lenses.  Make sure to read directions carefully before use.
