    Not sure if any of you run into problems with the winter heaters and dry contacts.
    I wear Air Optics Multifocals and they're very comfortable, BUT, with the all the holiday pine and drying heaters, my eyes can become RED from all excess heat.
    I was at the optician the other day and they gave me a bottle of this.

    There's a HUGE difference in comfort.
    I thought the video was kinda fun.

    Good to know. I suffered from chronic dry eye and gave up contacts decades ago. Though now glasses are in, all my friends caught up to me and are now bespeckled.

    I also gave up contacts decades ago. I don't know if it was from dry eye or what but after a few hours they became uncomfortable and bright things developed a halo.

    This stuff sounds like a good solution. (No pun intended.)

    I wear daily disposable torics, for my astimatism. And also use OPTI-FREE, which is good.

    But I must admit I wear contacts less and less. I still have to carry reading glasses with me. And the bifocal solutions for contacts have never pleased me. I certainly won't sacrifice my stereoscopic vision and depth perception for some 2-prescription lens answer.

    So if I've gotta have glasses with me anyway, what's the advantage of contacts? I might as well have my progressive bifocals. I've begun to develop cataracts, and like my husband I hope the corrective lens replacement will cure my vision, like it did his.

    So I'm not doing anything much now, just waiting until the cataracts degrade to the point where surgery is required, probably in about 4-5 years.

    Great suggestion!

    I've been having bad dry eye lately and was looking for something to use with my contacts. icon_smile.gif
