I've been a fan of Clear Care for years. It's the only contact solution that has kept my contacts clean and my eyes comfortable. Wanting to save a little money, I bought the Equate version of Clear Care to try. My first dislike was of the case. Whereas the Clear Care contact basket ends w/ the disc that neutralizes the peroxide in the solution, the Equate version has the neutralization disc built into the bottom of the container. This means that the solution has already started bubbling BEFORE you can put in the little baskets containing your contacts. The baskets themselves aren't as nice as the Clear Care ones, either. It looks much easier to pinch your contacts when closing them in the basket, and they aren't held as securely, either. I finished the bottle of Equate that I bought, but midway through the bottle, I'd noticed my eyes were getting irritated and I couldn't wear my contacts comfortably for as long as I can with Clear Care. I'm sticking to the name brand from now on--and my eyes are already thanking me for doing so! Maybe if your eyes are less sensitive than mine you'll do okay with the Equate version, but I don't think I'd risk it.

I've been using (even abusing) the name brand for 10 years. It's the only cleaning system that allows me to consistently clean my contacts without touching them (which tends to scratch the lenses and reduce their working lifespan). I've found, using the name brand, that I can wear my premium lenses for months before they wear out. The trick is to avoid touching the inside of the lens as much as possible, which is exactly what the name brand lets you do. With the name brand, when you open the little basket, the lens is (9 times out of 10) stuck to the body of the case, not the basket door. This means you just place your finger on the outside of the lens, lift, and touch your eye. Your finger never touches the inside of the lens and the lens lasts much longer and is more comfortable. This equate version ruins this strategy. 19 times out of 20, when you open up the little basket, the contact is stuck FIRMLY to the door. This means you have to touch the inside of the lens (the side that your eye touches) with your finger, just to get the contact out of the case. It's not easy either. There's a lot of rubbing involved, which scratches the lens and leaves grit from your finger on the lens. I've tried tapping the lens door. I've tried everything. The only thing that seems to work without a lot of effort is to find something soft (to avoid scratching the lens) and thin and wedge in between the lens and the door. Unfortunately, I don't know of anything soft and thin that might fit the bill. I used tweezers once, but I think the sharp metal will scratch the lens pretty quickly. This is a horrible design flaw as it ruins the lenses faster and makes wearing the lenses uncomfortable. I had to throw away a pair of lenses (chunks torn from the sides and down the middle) before I finished the first bottle of equate. The price is great. Fix the implementation and equate will have my money. For now, I'll gladly pay extra for the better name brand. Doctor visits and contact lenses aren't cheap, but more importantly, I prefer to not have grit from my finger in my eye all day.

Been using this product since I notice it at Walmart. Was using Clear Care and love it, however this product is less expensive and cleans my contact just as well. The case may not be as fancy, however it last as long as the bottle and still does the job, with no damage to the contact lense.

because that's what i really want to give this contact lens cleaner. as other reviewers have stated, the case is very sub standard. my biggest complaint is that after following the instructions exactly, this solution STINGS like crazy and left my eyes red for almost an hour. it's completely useless and very disappointing - especially since I've come to trust the Equate brand a great deal. I'll be more careful now.

I wish I had read the reviews before buying this product. This is an absolutely horrible product. I don’t even know where to begin. The contact case is not functional; this product killed my eyes… I bought the two-pack and ended up throwing the second bottle away. Plus, I ended up having to throw my contacts away as well. I switched back to Clear Care and my eyes have never been so happy.
