9/2/2016 – What’s the difference between vented and unvented scleral cups
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: Standard scleral cups are solid one one end then hollow the rest of the way through. This allows you to control the suction exerted on the lens and hold and release it as you are inserting the lens.Vented scleral cups are hollow all the way through - resembling a standard scleral cup with its end sliced off.
9/2/2016 – How often do I need to replace my plungers?
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: There are no hard and fast rules (but do consult your contact lens technician in case they have a specific recommendation). People usually replace their Ultras (the removal type) when they either lose them or the plunger eventually wears out and the suction doesn't work as well. Scleral cups can last a very long time. Eventually the rubber will degrade however, and some people change them all regularly just as a hygiene practice.
3/2/2015 – How often should the DMV scleral cup be replaced?
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: It's a matter of personal preference and/or function. They don't usually wear out very quickly. I have some custormers who replace them religiously every month or two and others who keep the same one going for a year or two. Personally I don't replace mine very often. I do however drop it in a cup of hydrogen peroxide for good cleaning now and then.Rebecca
3/21/2014 – Have you considered stocking the DMV Removal tool that has a hollow core? I like being able to control the amount of suction.
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: Not sure which one you are referring to, do you have a product name? Generally I carry anything that is standard for using scleral lenses and I try to add products customers ask for. I don't think I've had anybody ask for any other specialty remover besides the 45 angled type and the standard Ultras.EDIT / 2016 - This customer was talking about the DMV Classic, which we do stock now.
5/15/2013 – Hello, Could you provide the size of the DMV Scleral Cup? A great visual aid, but what are the measurements? Thank you,
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: It is 1.5" long and the cup part is about 7/16" diameter at the edge.
4/26/2013 – How should I store the lenses when not using them for weeks at a time? Dry? Wet?
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: Hi - so sorry I didn't see this & respond earlier! I think you can do it either way (and you might want to check with your provider just in case). If I'm not using a PROSE lens for awhile I store it dry.
7/8/2011 – Hi, Is the scleral inserter used for the PROSE lenses?
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: Yes, it is.
4/14/2011 – You adverti this as an insertion tool, but DMV Corp. @ http://dmvcorp.com/scleral.htm advertise it as in insertion\removal tool. Are these the same tool and will this work for removal. The tool I currently use does both and is teal in color as explained by another questioner.Thank you for your help
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: That's correct, the scleral cups can be used for insertion and removal. I think most people prefer the smaller tool (ultra remover) for lens removal. Personally I find it more effective.
7/20/2008 – i have been wearng a bandage contact lens . i have long fingernails and i have problems with putting them in and removing them. would this help me?
Response From The Dry Eye Shop: Definitely not... The scleral cups are not suitable for use with any soft lenses because they have suction and may tear the lens.
