    I have been replacing my RGP every year because after a while they
    form a white film on the outer edge of the lens which I am not able to
    clean. It bothers my vision if I blink my eye and the lens is sliding
    over the eye. Also, I have noticed this stain appearing after I go for
    a long drive (out of State) and the air contantly hitting my eyes,
    making my eyes watery. Or if I am outdoor a lot and my eyes get
    wattery. Is there a way to have these stains removed at home....Some
    one said use baking soda?

    I use at home Boston Cleaner to clean and then Boston Simplicity to
    store my lenses overnight. Why these white stains when they start
    appearing on my RGP, I am not able to clean them off. Do I need to use
    some other cleaner along with Boston one? Is baking soda Ok to use?
    Please help...

    Thanks a lot.
