About the DMV Classic

  • Controlled suction
  • Comes with hard plastic case
  • Used for Ortho-K lenses
  • Sold individually or in box of 10

Description (by Rebecca)

I have never used this particular plunger, but I stock it because I've occasionally had requests for it. Some people prefer it because you have control over the suction, like with a scleral cup. Comes in light blue or green, whatever the manufacturer happens to send us from time to time.

CAREFUL: Are you sure you're ordering the right plunger? I've had many people order this one by mistake. Most PROSE and scleral lens users use the DMV Ultra, not the Classic. If you don't know what you've ordered in the past, give us a call and we'll find out for you, or log in and look at your account history.

Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

Corneal Reshaping has become very popular. Another name to describe this procedure is “Orthokeratology.”  Ortho-K is an alternative to refractive surgery that is reversible. Because of this, many people prefer it to the risks of refractive surgery.

If you have chosen this new modality of corrective vision, you may wish to use the DMV® Classic™ for removal and insertion of your gas permeable lenses. Because the Classic’s suction can be readily “turned on and off” it is uniquely suited to handling larger gas permeable lenses. It can be released from the lens without damage.

Usage and care

What is the DMV Ultra Remover used for?

Removes and inserts gas permeable contact lenses

Instructions for use

Removal 

Compress the handle of the DMV Classic Lens Handler and carefully center it squarely on the contact lens. When the Classic has been seated on the lens, release the compression pressure and gently retract the lens. Always be aware of the position of the lens before applying the Classic to the lens. Remove the lens from the Classic by squeezing the handle. 

Insertion

Hold the DMV Classic lightly by the sides of the handle and place the properly prepared wet lens on the cup. Guide the lens to the eye and gently place it on the cornea. The lens will adhere to the cornea immediately. Important: do not squeeze the handle while inserting the lens. 

Precautions

In the even of mistake application of the Classic to the eye; merely squeeze the handle to release the suction. Should the lens resist removal from the eye, release the Classic by squeezing the bulb and consult your eye care practitioner for alternate removal process. Do not use with diseased, injured or otherwise compromised corneas. Do not use this product with soft lenses. 

Choking hazard

Keep this product and its case away from small children. 

Caution

This product contains natural rubber latex which may cause allergic reactions. 

Cleaning and care

Wash the Classic frequently in warm soapy water - let air dry.

Warranty information

If you have suction problems with your DMV Ultra, we're happy to replace it.

Didn’t realize it had a hole.

My previous one was solid. I just had to learn to squeeze before putting it on my lens.

Hi Anne, Thanks for the review! I'm wondering if possibly you might have ordered the wrong one. The solid "skinny" plunger is the DMV Ultra. You indicated in your profile that you wear scleral lenses or PROSE, and most people use the DMV Scleral Cup (or the Vented DMV Scleral Cup) for insertion and the DMV Ultra for removal. If you ever have questions or want to find out what you purchased last before re-ordering, just reach out anytime :) Kind regards Rebecca

Great for sclerals

I wear a scleral lens and prefer this remover. It's much easier to remove from the lens because you can control the suction by squeezing the core.
