Eye Wonder: Is it okay to use generic brand contact lens solution?
Store brand contact lens multipurpose solutions are located conveniently next to the name brands and look the same. However, the contents of the solution may not be the same. In fact, the newer name brand solutions were designed to work better with newer contact lens materials. Sometimes the generic works fine, but many people experience better comfort when they use the name-brand. Bottom line: you should stick with the contact solution that your eye doctor recommends.
