    Avizor is borate buffered. http://www.butterflies-eyecare.co.uk...saline-ud.html

    Somebody posted about it on the Facebook scleral lens group if I remember right.

      Yeah I'd be interested to hear how it works for you? The edetate dissodium is usually listed as a preservative in drops, but I gather in this one it's used in a smaller quantity as a buffer only.

        Yzhfd , have you tried filling your sclerals with 2-3 drops of your Thealoz Duo (which I believe comes preservative-free) along with the polyrinse unbuffered saline? Check with your eye doctor first, but I fill my sclerals with 2 drops PF artificial tears, 2 drops serum tears, and Purilens PF buffered saline. Even using buffered saline, including the artificial tears provides me some added comfort. Several people find adding a few drops of PF Refresh Celluvisc artificial tears works best, but if you already find Thealoz Duo comforting, that might help. Iím not personally familiar with Thealoz Duo, but if it is not a preservative free version and/or is thick like an ointment, it cannot be used in the sclerals.

          Yea it's good to do that, the unbuffered saline i have works pretty well, just wanna test if buffered is better, I have felt a small stinging sometimes when using this saline, nothing too bad.
