1. Open your eye widely.
2. The scleral lens should be centered on the plunger.
3. The chin need be leaned to the chest, with the head parallel to the ground.
4. Apply the lens softly without exerting pressure.
6. Non-preserved saline solution is recommended.
7. To avoid bubbles, the scleral lens must be overfilled with 0.9% saline solution.
1. Two fingers: The lens is placed on the index and middle finger of the dominant hand.
2. Three fingers: Three fingers (the thumb, index, and middle fingers) are used to support the lens.
different plungers may be used such as plungers with holes with or without stands, ring applicators and orthodontic dental band.
You cannot apply the lens in the eye?
1. Insufficient opening of the palpebral fissure. Eyelids popped out from under the fingers.
2. You looked away and missed the position of the eye.
Check the presence of air bubbles
There should never be a bubble under the lens after the lens application.
An air bubble is present?
In these cases, the lens need to be removed and reapplied on the eye.
