Description (Rebecca's)

I haven't used these, nor am I likely to. To be honest the idea scares me. But... they make a lot of sense for a number of situations.

The whole idea is a way to secure the lens to do a proper "rub" cleaning. Me, I can rub clean a lens any time with my right index finger and left palm.

But what about all the people out there with lovely long nails who really don't want to trim one down just to be able to use scleral lenses? And what about people with very rough finger pads, who worry they could scratch a lens with their fingertip? 

So imagine putting the lens on one of these little green pads, then using a cotton (CAREFUL! make sure it's 100% cotton!) Q tip and your favorite lens cleaning solution. Presto, doable.

CAUTION: DON'T do this, i.e. do not use either the pad, or the Q tips, or both, without explicit permission from your eye doctor for your specific lenses. 

Description (Manufacturer's)

Slight hiccup: We don't even know who the manufacturer is. So all we have is what the various distributors are saying.

Our distributor (in whom, it must be said, we do not have unlimited confidence) says:

  • The Cleaner for Contact Lenses enables anyone to thoroughly clean contact lenses of particles such as protein, body oils, cosmetics, etc.
  • These non-abrasive pads can be used with any liquid contact lens cleaner

Another distributor says:

  • The CLEANER ACCESSORY PAD™ will please even the toughest heavy depositors and offers superb down around cleaning for RGP and soft lenses.
  • Failure to properly clean off deposits can result in lens dryness, blurred vision, and eye irritation. Cleaner lenses means fewer unscheduled office visits. This new product will save you time and help eliminate simple cleaning regime headaches.
  • Now… the EASY EYES CONTACT LENS HOME CLEANING PAD is the first product that answers the need for effectively cleaning all soft, hard, and gas permeable contact lenses. After using the cleaner for a short period of time, you will notice more comfortable lenses, clearer vision, extended lens life, and fewer problems with torn lenses.
  • THE CLEANER ACCESSORY PAD™ was designed by “Eye Care Professionals” specifically for safely removing damaging particles from the lens… such as protein, body oil, cosmetics, and any other materials that normally stick to the lens’ surface.

Who to believe? Such a dilemma. But here's a concept: Talk to YOUR eye doctor, and don't use these unless they sign off on it.
