Solo Care Aqua


Since I'm so free now, I've decided to write about some products which have been reliable and safe. Ever since I started wearing contacts in 2007, Solo Care Aqua by CIBA Vision was the first brand introduced to me by the optician. I find this multi-purpose solution is very convinient as it does everything-clean, rinse and disinfect lenses. I don't need to use any other supplementary solution.
In addition, every bottle comes with a case whereby green, labelled R is for the right eye lenses while the white side is for the left eye lenses (this is applicable if you have different degrees for both eyes). Each time I open a new bottle, I will discard the old case. It is important to do so as the case may look clean, but bacteria and dirt actually accumulates over time.

I particularly like this brand as it has this 5-minute express option which comes in handy when you need your contacts within short intervals of time. Its pretty simple- just apply a few drops of the solution on the lenses and rub on your palm. Then soak it in the case for 5 minutes and you can wear them instantly.
Apart from that, I can store my contact lenses in the case filled with the solution for up to 30 days. This is provided you don't open it and keep it tightly shut. I find this useful as I don't use contacts everyday nowadays. On top of that, it can store the lenses for more than 30 days, but you can't wear them right away. You'll need to soak them in fresh solution first. I've never tried that since my contact lenses only last a month.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with this products. All the boxes are sealed on the outisde and the bottle itself has a sealed cap. Once opened, it can last up to 90 days (3 months). Therefore, it is important to note down the date or use a marker to write it on the bottle. Solo Care Aqua is available at opticians, Guardian, and Watson in bottles of 360 ml and travel packs of 120 mls.
