Comments Off

What is ReNu with MoistureLoc?
ReNu with MoistureLoc first became commercially available in the United States in 2004. It is a daily use contact lens solution that according to the package insert is used in “the daily cleaning, removal of protein deposits, rinsing, chemical (not heat) disinfection and storage of soft (hydrophilic) contact lenses.” Users are directed to soak their contact lenses in ReNu with MoistureLoc for “at least four (4) hours.” When used daily ReNu with MoistureLoc Multi-Purpose Solution “cleans, loosens, and removes accumulations of film, debris and deposits from soft contact lenses. [It] helps prevent the formation of irritating deposits on the lens surface. It kills harmful microorganisms on the lens. While your lens is soaking, the formula surrounds the lens with a moisture attracting matrix.”

According to the packaging, the product has been specifically formulated with “MoistureLoc technology, to work in harmony with your tears to provide sustained comfort and clean lenses day after day. When used daily, this unique combination of ingredients fights dryness by surrounding the lens with a long lasting cushion of moisture.” It is also claimed that those contact lens wearers with non-Sjorgen dryness may experience improve comfort compared to their previous lens care system by using ReNu with MoistureLoc.
