Can Duoneb Damage Your Glasses? (Top voted first)

Eric Says:

I am using DuoNeb (not just Abuterol) in my nebulizer. At first, I noticed only about 10 very tiny dots that would NOT come out. As time went on, those 10 tiny dots turned into over 100 (on EACH lens), which also would NOT come out. My Optometrist tried everything to get them out, even Acetone, but nothing worked. I ended up having to buy a new set of lenses and now I'm TERRIFIED to wear my glasses while using my nebulizer (which I take FOUR times a day). I don't have insurance, so I can't just have my insurance cover a new pair of lenses again. Has anyone else had this experience or know of any experiences like this?

Is there no one out there who knows if DuoNeb (Nebulizer medication) can damage eyeglass lens's? Please help me find this out. If it happens again, I WON'T be able to afford replacing my lens's.

Hi Eric,

I'm so sorry that this is happening to you, I wear glasses and I know how expensive they are even with insurance! I haven't been able to find any information leading me to believe that DuoNeb (or any nebulizers for that matter) can cause damage to glasses. I imagine that it's possible, maybe just very rare since I haven't heard/seen anyone else report about the issue. Maybe you can remove your glasses when using the nebulizer- just in case? It might be a hassle to remember to take them off every time you use it but if it's really what is causing the dots on your glasses I'm sure it would be worth it. If it isn't the nebulizer I sure hope you figure out what it is!

Please post back if you have anymore questions/comments.
