The Prince Choice Awards 2013
I am so often asked in the exam room and on the net what I recommend and what are my "favorite" products to use/prescribe. So every now and then I post them! Here are the "winners" of the 2013 Prince Choice Awards: 1) BEST DAILY DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENS: hands down it's Alcon Dailies Total 1. Possibly the most comfortable contact lens ever, excellent optics, excellent safety, excellent compliance. It's 1 knock is cost. 2) BEST TWO WEEK CONTACT LENS: Acuvue Oasys. 3) BEST MONTHLY CONTACT LENS: Alcon Air Optix Aqua, with Night & Day a close second. 4) BEST OVERALL CONTACT LENS: Alcon Dailies Total 1. 5) BEST TORIC CONTACT LENS: Alcon Air Optix for Astigmatism. I have literally never used a better, more stable toric lens in 13 years of practice. This lens rocks. 6) BEST CONTACT LENS SOLUTION: Clear Care. Absolutely cleans the best, hypoallergenic. It's 1 knock is that you must actually follow the directions. 7) BEST PRESCRIPTION ANTIHISTAMINE EYE DROP: Lastacaft. Works immediately, very long duration. 8) BEST OTC ANTIHISTAMINE: ketoifen fumarate, found as the active ingredient in Zaditor, Alaway, Zyrtec and others. 9) BEST OTC ARTIFICIAL TEAR: Systane Ultra. 10) BEST PRESCRIPTION ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: Lotemax (for surface inflammation). 10 is probably enough for now haha...so there you have them! Winners of the 2013 PRINCE CHOICE AWARDS!
