    I am looking for a generic version of Blink-n-Clean, because it is a
    bit pricey. So I start looking for other drops that have the same
    ingredients, and I find many other solutions have the same ingredients
    (perhaps not all or not in the same amounts). See here:

    http://www.clspectrum.com/class/solutions.asp

    and compare with Blink-N-Clean ingredients:

    COMPLETE® Blink-N-Clean® Lens Drops is a sterile, isotonic, buffered,
    preserved solution. This aqueous formulation includes purified water,
    sodium chloride, preserved with polyhexamethylene biguanide 0.0001%,
    <<< tromethamine as an emulsifier and buffer >>>, hydroxypropyl
    methylcellulose as a lubricant, tyloxapol as a surfactant, and edetate
    disodium as a chelating agent. This preparation contains no
    chlorhexidine, no thimerosal and no other mercury containing
    ingredients.

    Here's a twist... the non-cleaning version of Complete lubricating and
    rewetting drops just has a slight variation noted within <<< >>>

    COMPLETE® Moisture PLUS™ Lubricating and Rewetting Drops is a
    sterile, isotonic, buffered, preserved solution. This aqueous
    formulation includes purified water, sodium chloride, preserved with
    polyhexamethylene biguanide 0.0001%, <<< buffered with tromethaminesurfactant, and edetate disodium as a chelating agent. This
    preparation contains no chlorhexidine, no thimerosal and no other
    mercury containing ingredients.

    What's up with that? Are there any other drops that lubricate, rewet,
    and clean?
