Seeking Comfort: My Biotrue® Challenge

It is late at night.  I am on Twitter Facebook Blackboard chatting it up doing homework.  I have a slight headache and unfortunately, when I try to take off my glasses to get a little rest from the pressure (I have a big head, ya’ll.  Don’t judge!) I can’t see my screen.

This is precisely the reason why I’m taking the Biotrue® Challenge this summer. I am sick of being told that I can wear my contacts for long periods of time but not feeling sufficiently comfortable in them.  By the end of the day, I’m always looking like I’ve crossed the desert and my eyes are telling the sad, painful story. Sure, I can throw my glasses on but, if there’s a way for me to be comfortable in my contacts then I’m all in.

I’m taking this challenge because guess what? It’s not like I have to jump through any crazy hoops.  It’s simple.  This month I am switching out my old crappy contact lens solution for Biotrue®.

Biotrue® multi-purpose solution dissolves protein and cleans, loosens and removes accumulations of film, debris and deposits from soft contact lenses. Which is a good thing because last night when I took my contacts out I took a good look at it (have you done this recently? Try it and be scared). It looked like a film was over the lens but when I “cleaned” it with my old solution I didn’t notice much difference. And that made me wonder how many times I’ve put gunk back in my eye without even realizing it!  Good thing Biotrue® kills harmful microorganisms on the lens.

This will mean that I no longer have to imagine little tiny baby bacteria reproducing on my corneas.  What’s even better than it actually cleaning up the gunk is this formula was designed to work like your eye so it incorporates a lubricant that’s already found there.  While your lens is soaking, the formula envelops the lens in a moisture-rich cushion to help the lens remain comfortable throughout the day. Which means that my eyes will still be feeling fresh and comfortable come nightfall. I don’t know about you but, I’m excited!

Between Mami Ink, school goofing off and blogging, I spend quite a bit of time in front of the computer and with Mami Ink now demanding even more of my time, taking better care of my eyes has become key.  I mean, it’s a major part of how I do my job. So, are you up for the challenge?

What changes are you making to be more comfortable at the end of the day?
