This is a great product for gas permeable contact lens comfort. I've used it for years and couldn't live without it. The new packaging lid design is awful, but the product itself is still the best. If you've been using other brands, try this for a month or two - your eyes will feel great. I wear my gas permeable lenses every day for at least 15 hours a day - heavy computer use, lots of reading. Boston makes them moist and comfortable. I had to have muhc shorter days of lens wear with other brands. Also, my contacts usually last about four years. Seriously, I get that much use and comfort from them.

Beware! Formula has changed!

I've worn rigid gas perm. lenses for about 27 years after wearing "hard" lenses for 13 years. I tried the Boston Advance when it first came out many years ago and had an allergic reaction to it. The ophthalmologist said I was allergic to the preservative in it. I can use the original formula with no problem whatsoever. I bought the new "improved" formula last week without even noticing because the box was identical to the original formula box. It wasn't until the next morning when my contacts kept fogging up and causing my eyes to produce mucus that I realized that the box said "improved" instead of "original". I contacted B&L and they said they were streamlining their product selection and that I shouldn't have had a problem with the new solution. They claim the additional additive in it should make my contacts feel better! I need to find out what the added ingredient is so I can avoid it. After more than 40 years of using B&L I now have to find a new solution. Can't believe it.

        DRugstore.com advertises this product ("improved formula") but ships another product. despite repeated attempts we could not get the right product.
        I would recommend the product itself but not drugstore.com

              This "comfort solution" has replaced the original soaking and wetting solution. This "new" formular is like the "advanced" fomular it irratates my eyes.

              where can I get the original?

              The original formula worked great, since they change it to be "improved" it has been a poor-fair product for me. I did call Bausch and Lomb to complain to customer service and tell them their product irritated my eyes and that I wanted to know where I could purchase the "original formula". But they have stopped manufacturing the "original formula" and too bad so sad. Darn.
              It works better for me than the Advanced or Simplus, so I guess this is what I have to use for now...

              I use Boston Conditioning Soloution solely for wetting my lenses, For comfort, I prefer it to their all-in-one product (which cleans, wets and soaks.)

                            I'm one of many people who liked the original formula but react to the improved formula. With the improved formula, my eyes build up a lot of mucus and the cushioning doesn't last very long. How I would like the original formula back!
