What is the difference between Renu Multipurpose Solution and Renu Multiplus Solution?
Renu Multipurpose Solution and Renu Multiplus Solution are both multi purpose contact lens solutions that offer a gentle formula for cleaning and storing your contact lenses.
Renu Multipurpose Solution contains different ingredients to Renu Multiplus Solution and requires a separate conditioner for your lenses. Renu Multiplus Solution on the other hand is a conditioner and cleaner in one, aiding comfort of the lenses. It also has preservative and a built-in protein remover known as Hydranate (Renu Multipurpose Solution does not have this) which is good for dry eyes. This eliminates the need for a separate enzyme cleaner when used daily.
Both these multi purpose solutions are suitable for all types of soft contact lenses including silicone hydrogel contact lenses and are designed to disinfect, rinse and store lenses effectively.
These solutions contain preservatives and come in a 240ml bottle with 1 lens case per pack.
Which is better Renu Multipurpose Solution or Renu Multiplus solution?
Renu Multipurpose Solution is a better choice if you have particularly sensitive eyes and guarantees a gentle yet effective disinfection. It contains DYMED which effectively kills microorganisms on the lens.
Renu Multiplus solution is considered a better option if you wish to eliminate the need for a separate enzyme cleaner and achieve a new lens feel as it is also designed to condition the lens.
