    What it is

    This is a handy new utility device for lens insertion. It consists of:

    • Flat white plastic carrying case, about 3.25" square and <1" high
    • Clear plastic "frog-shaped" stand that snaps into one half of the plastic case, which then functions as a base to catch saline drops
    • Blue silicone plunger in the "vented" style

    How it compares to others

    Marketing

    This product has more polished marketing and packaging than any other scleral lens insertion stand currently on the market, and I would tend to predict strong market uptake in optometry on that basis.

    Stand height

    LensBase tops out about 2.5" off the table (without plunger), which is similar to See Green but shorter than DMV and S5. Some people will find that their face is getting uncomfortably close to the table or that they need a 'booster' (books or something underneath).

    Stability

    Reasonably good. Because of the light weight plastics, LensBase may not feel quite as solid - in terms of the whole unit staying in space and not sliding - as either See Green (with its heavy PVC) or DMV (with its resin base). 

    Plunger

    LensBase comes with its own dark blue silicone plunger, with a different design and material than any other we've seen on the market. The opening at the vented end is about 4mm (vs 2mm at the 'cup' end). The material feels much slicker than DMV's latex or SeeGreen's latex or silicone plungers and is best suited for use with the stand than with fingers. However, the winder opening at the far end favors easy manual cleaning.

    In case you're curious, DMV and See Green plungers do not work very well with this stand - they will fit, but not snugly enough to stay very stable.

    Visual guide

    There is no light adaptation for this stand, but the wide opening at the bottom of the plunger leaves room for light to come through, reflected off the white base.  

    Usefulness

    I can definitely see a role for this stand in helping to increase awareness of the role of stands in learning lens insertion. I can also imagine plenty of See Green stand users getting one of these for travel convenience. 

    Description (Manufacturer's)

    Have LensBase, Will Travel

    I have needed to use the See Green to insert my Scleral Lenses. I heard about the LensBase on NKCF Clearly KC Podcast by Dr. Melissa Barnett, OD. I tried the LensBase and I really like it.

    As Rebecca thought, the LensBase is perfect for my Go Kit. I take my Go Kit with me daily and also when traveling.

    With the large opening on the unique plunger and the white tray visible below, it is a good visual guide for me to insert my Sclerals.

    The base “gives” a little, so for me, I like the “softer landing”when inserting my Sclerals, and sometimes I like to use the LensBase at home.

    And I love that the LensBase comes in it’s own small case and takes up such little space.

    The LensBase is very easy to set up & use and easy to pack it up too. It is a nice bonus that the bottom tray catches the insertion fluid that I use to rinse and to fill my Sclerals.

    I’m very happy with the LensBase.
