We were recently discussing contact lens solutions in the office, and Leah brought up an interesting fact that she learned in her Optometric Assistant program. Her program taught the risks associated with using generic brand solutions. Although they seem like a great way to save money, there’s no guarantee you’ll be getting a formula that suits your eyes. The suppliers purchase mass quantities of various products with value as a priority over consistency. Essentially, you could purchase “the same” generic solution several times and get a different product each time.
