Unisol 4 Replacement Recommendations

To fill your PROSE devices prior to application, we suggest using Sodium Chloride 0.9% vials for nebulization. This is a preservative free saline that comes in 3ml or 5ml vials. These can also be used to rinse your devices. An example is the AddiPak Sodium Chloride 0.9% vials.

Another option is Purilens Plus. Purilens Plus is a chemical and preservative-free contact lens cleaning solution exclusively formulated for use with the PuriLens Plus Soft Contact Lens Cleaning/Disinfecting System. It is a sterile preservative-free saline solution buffered with boric acid and sodium borate. Our experience with Purilens Plus in Fall 2015 suggests it can be used as an alternative to Unisol to rinse and fill PROSE devices. It is not a standalone cleaner or disinfection solution; it does not substitute for nightly cleaning and disinfection. PuriLens Plus solution can be ordered directly from Purilens at www.purilens.com.

For RINSING ONLY, if you are unable to get the recommended preservative free suggestions above, we suggest Bausch and Lomb Sensitive Eyes Plus Saline Solution for rinsing only. This solution contains preservatives and under no circumstances should it be used to fill prosthetic devices used in PROSE treatment. Also, if using this solution for rinsing, the prosthetic devices should be thoroughly rinsed with either PuriLens Plus or Sodium Chloride 0.9% inhalation vials prior to application. Bausch and Lomb Sensitive Eyes Plus Saline Solution can be found in many pharmacies, grocery stores, and online, i.e. amazon.com.
