Heads up, contact lens wearers

When my daughter begged to start wearing contact lenses I forgot about the part where she would forever be coming downstairs waving an empty bottle, demanding that I buy her more saline. Darn needy child. And of course the expensive part of it is the solution, not the lenses themselves.

I’m all over this: Amazon has a two-pack of Opti-Free Replenish value packs (that is, it’s a two-pack of two-packs—40 ounces of solution) for just $14. I usually pay $16 just for one two-pack, so this is more than half off what it normally costs me. This is the solution our optometrist recommends, and I don’t know if it’s any better than anything else, but my kid is kind of a delicate flower and likes it just fine.

And the best part is that I don’t even have to sell her into slavery to afford it, which is good because that could open up a whole O Henry-esque can of worms, y’know?


  1. Wow!!! What a DEAL!!! Stocking up now!

  2. That is a fantastic deal. I just unloaded the package I bought at Walmart for $16. *sigh*

  3. Ooh, thanks! That’s a great deal.

  4. Yay! Thanks! That is one heck of a deal!

  5. I just buy the Walmart Equate brand solution for $3.00….if you read the back…the list of “ingrediants” is exactly the same! It works just fine!

  6. Well, Amazon did it again…now the price is back up to over $30!

  7. I have also been buying the equate brand for probably over 20 years and I’m not blind yet! 😉

  8. ugh, I’m too late 🙁

  9. Yeah, Amazon has it back up to $37.49!

  10. Ditto on the Equate brand for cheap, works just fine. 🙂
