    Description (by Rebecca)

    Updated 9/9/2021

    At last, a double-sided combo-tool! But wait! It might not be exactly what you're thinking, so please read the description before ordering.

    OVERALL: The Versa is a little more than a quarter-inch longer than a regular plunger. 

    REMOVER END: Exactly like a DMV Ultra. 

    INSERTER END: Different from any other DMV plunger, because there is no hole - either to let the light through (if you're used to using a DMV Vented Scleral Cup) or to apply suction to the lens (if you're used to using a standard DMV Scleral Cup). So basically the lens just sits there. It's ribbed, though, which helps prevent slippage. - The diameter of this end is just every so slightly wider than the Scleral Cup.

    I think this tool will be fine for many users, especially those who use smaller scleral lenses (that don't require suction). And I think it will be adequate "in a pinch" for inserting larger lenses. Personally, I currently have 18mm lenses and suction on the lens is very important for me for keeping the lens stable during insertion, so I'll be sticking with my regular scleral cup for daily insertion, but I love the idea of this combo tool for those who can use it! 

    If you try it, let us know what you think! And if you post a review please specify your lens diameter if at all possible so that others can better judge how well it will work for them. Thanks!

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature) 

    DMV Versa is designed for inserting and removing scleral contact lenses.

    Instructions for use

    Before using the first time, clean the device with 70% isopropyl alcohol and allow to air dry.

    Removal

    Moisten the suction cup (smaller end) of the DMV Versa with saline solution, guide it to the eye and place it onto the front of the scleral contact lens near the edge. Slowly pull the lens away from the eye. This action will loosen the adherence of the lens and the lens will come free from the eye. After removal, carefully slide the contact lens sideways from the suction cup.

    Insertion

    Place a wet scleral lens onto the large end of the Versa where the lens will lightly adhere. Hold the eye lids open with the other hand and place the scleral contact lens on the eye. Once the lens has adhered to the eye, withdraw the DMV Versa. The ribs in the cup are designed to provide an elevated surface for the lens to rest on and prevent the lens from sticking to the Versa. Use a mirror for guidance.

    Follow the directions of your contact lens fitter or eyecare specialist.

    Cleaning

    Each time after using the DMV Versa clean it with 70% isopropyl alcohol and allow to air dry, then store the device in its case. Plan to replace it every six months. 

    Precaution

    If the DMV Versa would accidentally become attached to the eye with the small end (suction cup), slide it to the corner of the eye and remove it by turning. If the DMV Versa would accidentally become attached to the eye with the large end (resting pad), merely withdraw it from the eye, as there is no suction on this end.

    Ok

    This one is great. The beefy handle really assists in removing the contact. I would highly recommend this one.

    Favorite tool

    I'm new to scleral lenses, and this has quickly become my favorite tool. I sometimes had trouble releasing the lens with the suction inserter, but using it without suction didn't feel stable enough. This inserter, being wider and ribbed, holds my my 15.4mm lenses very steady. Having the remover attached is a bonus! Fewer tools to carry around & clean!

    Remover/Plunger

    It works BUT it’s very firm and also big in size. I thought it would be something smaller and softer to carry in my pocket but it sticks out. It does the job though and is very convenient.

    Not the Magic Tool I'd Hoped for Yet

    I bought this in hopes that it would help with removal. I have tremors, so the thicker "handle" is very nice. For some reason, though, it's harder for me to remove the lens with it - I can't always tell if it's on, sometimes it is on but doesn't stick, and other times it will stick only long enough to remove the lens then drop it. I'm not sure if it's operator error, something about the design, or if the one I got just is problematic (as happens with the regular DMV removal plungers).

    Excellent

    A little more curved or bowled at the insertion end would be nice.
