I’ve posted on here before about how much I love Bausch + Lomb contact solution, and how it’s the only brand I will buy to take care of my contact lenses. I don’t trust my eyes to just anyone, but Bausch + Lomb has proven themselves worthy of my loyalty.
Bausch + Lomb has recently introduced a new multi-purpose eye care solution called Biotrue™, and I got to try a sample of it. Before I get to my review of this new multi-purpose solution, I want to tell you a bit about the product.
Biotrue is inspired by the biology of your eyes™. It goes beyond cleaning by being the only solution to bring together three bio-inspired innovations:
- Has a lubricant found naturally in your eyes
- Matches the pH of healthy tears
- Keeps certain beneficial tear proteins active
Biotrue™ is formulated to work like your eyes. By studying how the eye naturally works to clean, hydrate, and keep itself healthy, Bausch + Lomb developed a unique and innovative solution to provide outstanding lens care.
My Review of Bausch + Lomb Biotrue™
The fact that the creation of Biotrue™ was actually inspired by the eye intrigued me. I have very sensitive eyes, and wondered if the Biotrue™ would work as well as the other 2 Bausch + Lomb solutions I rotate between.
Before trying the Biotrue™, I went to the website to learn more about their product. I like that the product contains a lubricant that’s naturally found in tears. It’s job is to keep eyes hydrated all day long. Biotrue is also “uniquely formulated to match the pH of healthy tears.” And it keeps certain beneficial tear proteins active as they are naturally in the eye. All of this sounds great, right? But how will it work on really sensitive eyes? I was curious to find out.
I used the product for an entire week, because I wanted to see exactly how my eyes would react, and I wanted to give it enough time to make a difference. Boy, what a difference it made! I get up at 4:30 every morning, and after I brush my teeth, the first thing I do is pop in my contacts. I usually leave my contacts in until I go to bed – around 10 or 10:30. That’s a long time to wear contacts during the day. Normally, my eyes get dry, and I have to take them out in the evening. Or, I’m using eye drops several times a day. Either way, by the end of the day, my contacts are uncomfortable, my eyes are dry, and I just can’t take it anymore. BUT, I’ve noticed that since I’ve switched to the Biotrue™, my eyes don’t dry out nearly as much. This week I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve needed to use eye drops, and I think there was only one night I took my contacts out early. (And that was because of a migraine – not because of dry eyes.)
There are several things I love about the Biotrue™ solution: My eyes feel healthier, and I can feel a real difference at the end of the day. The bottle is clear, so I can see exactly how much solution I have left and when it’s time to stock up on more. And while it’s not a “no-rub” solution, there are just 3 easy steps to take to store your contacts for the night… or up to 30 days.
To learn more about Biotrue™, head to www.biotrue.com and learn all the ways that Bausch + Lomb is using the eye to give you the best solution yet. (In my humble opinion.)
