      I have worn soft contact lenses for over 20 years and during that time, I have tried every brand of contact lens solution available. I rarely see any difference, so I generally buy the cheapest one, because solution can be pretty expensive. In the past few years, most of the solutions are so-call ‘multi-purpose’ and are supposedly good for cleaning, rinsing, storage, and lubricating the contacts once they are in your eyes.

      I have never really found a solution that does all those things better than any other solution. The last time I bought some solution, the one that was the cheapest at $9.

      99


      was Equate No Rub Multi-Purpose Solution; according to the packaging, this solution did not require any rubbing or cleaning at all. This is a very attractive claim, because of course, rubbing the contacts increases the chances of tearing the lenses, and it also save a lot of time.

      The instructions say to simply rinse the contacts with this solution and put them in their container with more solution. I doubted how this could work, but I bought it as it was the least expensive.

      That night when I took my contact lenses out, I completely forgot about the ‘no rub’ feature; I have been doing ...


      • the same routine for so long that it is just a reflex. The next night I did remember.

        I took each lens out, poured the solution over it, and put them away. The next day, I rinsed each one again before putting them in my eyes.

        They felt okay, but the next day, they felt cloudy (you contact lens wearers will understand what I mean). I rinsed again, and the same thing happened.

        I ended up rubbing, and they cleared up a bit. This continued for a week; I ended up rubbing to clean the lenses anyway.

        I decided I needed to change my

        lenses in case they were just old, so I put in a new pair. The same thing occurred-the lenses felt cloudy and sometimes even dirty the next day when I put them in, so I always ended up rubbing them and re-rinsing them, which of course meant I went through the solution very quickly.

        I now just rub my lenses to clean them at night before I store them, and this works. Equate No Rub Multi-Purpose Solution is not really ‘no rub’ at all, but when you rub to clean, it works no better or no worse than the other solutions on the market.

    Hi, I think that your Wal-Mart have just ran out of the solution. It is available in my Wal-Mart here in Gainesville Ga (400 Shallowford Rd NW, Gainesville, GA 30504) for about $ 3.50 for a 12 ounce bottle. Perhaps, you could have your Wal-Mart do a store to store order? Also, I have included a link for you for Wal-Mart.com : where you can find the No RUB Multi-Purpose Solution for soft contact lenses for $ 3.48 for the same 12 ounce bottle. However, you may have to pay for shipping which could raise the price. Anyway, hope this helps.
