Re: Long term scleral use

How about 20+ years, but I am sure I am not the longest! The blanched ring is not an uncommon problem, I would encourage you to get it checked at your clinic. Often issues don't show up until after a few hours of wearing and can usually be sorted with an adjustment to the fit.

Re: Cost of RGP Lenses on the NHS?

If we don't have one already, a list of hospitals with contact lens departments would be a useful addition to the site/group. Many hospitals have good eye departments and can be very helpful in an urgent situation but not all will have a full contact lens team. Here is the "starter": Londo...

Re: Vision with scleral lens

I think you should go back to see your practitioner. I would be concerned if it was taking me 40 mins to insert. There are several things that could be wrong: fit, prescription. technique. Are you wearing specs over the top?

Re: Scleral Lens

To answer your questions. 1. There is a minimal layer of saline between the lens and your eye, you probably just don't notice it when you remove them. 2. Many wearers do find that taking them out for a refresh improves vision and comfort. From time to time the saline can become cloudy. I would alway...

Re: Leaky bottles - Oté Clean

Leaky bottles - Oté Clean

Has anyone else noticed that the bottles of Oté Clean (Eyeye Crystal Cleaner etc) leak badly once opened? The cap does not provide a decent seal. Is it important? Well, I find it makes a mess of your bag / pocket when traveling.

Ideas / suggestions?
