    Is it safe to use contact lens cleaning solution that expired?

    I just found a bottle of my Opti-Free Express contact lens cleaner that has an exp. date of 9/2003. Anyone know if I should just throw it out or should it still be able to clean the contact lenses?

    I got some on Ebay that was expired and used about half of it before I even realized it. It worked fine.

    I too have used expired contact solution. It's just saline. I've never had a problem.

    I wouldn't if it is "very" out of date... buy a new bottle when you can..but that's just me.....

    Don't you think your eye sight is worth $5-6? If you get an infection, you could wind up damaging your eyes and having doctor bills that are higher than a few dollars.

    You can get Target brand for a few dollars.

    Okay, now I will stop talking like a mom. Good luck.

    Re: Is it safe to use contact lens cleaning solution that expired?

    I was helping my mother in law clean her house one day and I found a bottle of contact lense solution that was 10 yrs past the experation so I threw it out. Boy did she throw a fit! " I could have still used that!" she said. umm yeah like 10 yrs ago. It's one thing to be frugal but I thought that was ridiculous. I would throw it away, your eyesight is very precious don't take chances....what if you got an infection in your eyes? I have had 2 and they are not fun!

    Re: Is it safe to use contact lens cleaning solution that expired?

    I once had a bottle that was expired. It would irritate my eyes... I couldn't figure out what it was.. I thought it was my contacts until I changed contacts and realized it was still doing it. Then I looked at the expiration and I think it had only expired about a month or so. I immediately threw it away and got new solution. I think if you want to save money, just buy the walmart Equate version that is half the price of the Renu or other brand names. They do the same thing
