Hard Contact lens shortage

Postby Dave_79 » Thu 17 Jun 2021 8:25 am

Anybody noticing a shortage of hard contact lens solution in high street stores and supermarkets? Shelves empty in my local Boots and Sainsburys in which I until now had no issues buying from also Boston and Total Care seems to now not be stocked by Sainsburys.

Hallo Dave and welcome,
I guess you mean shortage of the solutions (not lenses). The shelves are empty because there has been a recall of many solutions. Do read the two threads about the Bausch and Lomb and other brands product recall just below this one. People have been suggesting alternative solutions to use, alternatively do check with your optometrist what they recommend.

Thanks Anne, never really got on with Boston so always used Total Care but since the recall I presume all 'other' products will be swamped
