Re: Scleral Lens

WOW, that’s good. For me sometimes first time without a bubble others times it can take quite a few goes. How do you remove your lens? I can’t remove it using the sucker, I’ve tried & tired & just end up making my eye sore, so I use my thumb nail to break the seal & out it pops.

Re: Scleral Lens

Just a quick update to all you kind folks who responded to my original ramblings. So 5 weeks down the line, I can now insert the lens 99% of the time without a bubble. I use 3 finger tripod method. :P To only way I can remove the lens is by breaking the seal with my thumb nail. It works for me. Next...

Re: Scleral Lens

So........still a bit of a trial, but getting there. Haven’t managed to insert the lens first time without a bubble. Last few days 3rd attempt & success (has taken over 30 attempts at times, stress level through the roof). I’ve tried 3 fingers, 2 fingers & sucker. 2 fingers seems to work bes...

Re: Scleral Lens

Thank you everyone who responded to my post. I collected my lens yesterday, managed to insert after 5 attempts at the hospital. Found it really difficult to get it out. Today I couldn’t manage to insert the lens with fingers & was getting stressed out. Tried the sucker & it went in first ti...

Re: Scleral Lens

Thank you Andrew. Good to know it’s easy to get the lens out. I just couldn’t get the trial lens out, there is definitely a knack to it. Fingers crossed we will both get to grips with inserting & removing soon. I’m also concerned I’ll get a mental block of “can’t do this!” Having worn RGP for ma...

Re: Scleral Lens

Thank you, I will try your method, fingers crossed. The practitioner at the hospital is keen for me to insert & remove with my fingers for some reason, but I know there will be a plunger provided. I’m worried about it all but more so the removal as I couldn’t get the trial lens out, but I was so...

Scleral Lens

Hello, I’m new to the forum (about 5 mins, lol) so please forgive me if this has been discussed/asked before! Yesterday I was measured for a re-fit from GP lens in un-grafted eye to a scleral lens. The GP on the grafted eye is ok at the moment but maybe changed. So my question, how long did it take ...
