    My few months old Boston EO lenses got severe grease just few minutes after
    wearing them recently, although the lenses are absence of scratches and

    Despite putting lens lubricant and even removing them to clean, the oil
    stuff formed on the lens surface immediately after few blinks.
    Thanks in advance for advice.

    Try using a strong cleaner like Optimum Extra Strength, or Claris. If
    that doesn't solve the problem, then the excess oil may be in your
    tears. Sometimes this can be prevented by having the surface of the
    lens plasma treated. But, this can only be done on a new lens.

    Thanks DrG,

    The grease formed on my lenses (while wearing) can easily removed by rinsing
    with saline solution, but they just turned greasy again within few minutes
    after putting back on my eyes.

    I never have this problem since I wore RGP more than 5 years ago and my
    present lenses appear absolutely clean. I have tried different cleaner and
    soaking/wetting solution as advised by the optometrist but don't work.

    What is plasma treated CL? what is the brand name?

    Thanks again. Alex.
