    Description (by Rebecca)

    Careful! There's lots of confusion about this one! Make sure you know what type of plunger to get when you order, and if you are unsure of what you ordered before, give us a call. Please note that if you use the Dalsey Adaptives lighted inserter, this is NOT the plunger you need. Please click here for the one you need.

    Vented scleral cup vs standard scleral cup

    The DMV Vented Scleral Cup (pictured here) has a completely hollow shaft, while the standard DMV Scleral Cup is closed at one end, allowing you to control and release suction. 

    Nearly all PROSE users, and a majority of users of large (>16mm) scleral lenses, use the standard DMV Scleral Cup, NOT the vented version.

    Vented scleral cup vs DMV Classic

    The Vented Scleral Cup is big - the DMV Classic (hollow shaft with control over suction, commonly used for CRT lenses) is small like the DMV Ultra but differently structured.

    Not recommended for removal of hybrids

    The manufacturer (DMV Corp.) does not recommend any of their tools for removal of hybrid lenses. Please ask your doctor for their advice on removal technique.

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

    The DMV® Vented Scleral Cup™ is an aid for INSERTION of hybrid contact lenses. Hybrid lenses are made of a gas permeable center optical area surrounded by a soft comfort skirt.

    The DMV® Vented Scleral Cup™ helps the wearer guide the hybrid lens straight onto the eye in a stable manner thus avoiding dropping the lens from their finger. This tool is NOT USED FOR REMOVAL of hybrid lenses.

    Usage and care

    What is the DMV Vented Scleral Cup used for?

    DMV Vented Scleral Cups are used mostly for inserting hybrid contact lens types, although some scleral users use them for insertion. They are not suitable for removal of lenses. 

    Instructions for use

    Lens insertion

    Follow lens preparation instructions provided by your eye care practitioner and lens manufacturer. Place the lens in the DMV Vented Scleral Cup front side down. Fill the lens with contact lens solution approved by your eye care practitioner. Tuck your chin to your chest and lean forward. While looking straight down in to a mirror placed flat on the horizontal surface in front of you, retract the upper and lower lines and lift the lens gently onto the cornea. A few drops of solution should drip from the eye during insertion. If bubbles appear under then lens after insertion, remove the lens and re-insert. 

    Precaution

    Do not use this product with diseased, injured or otherwise compromised eyes. 

    Choking hazard

    Cleaning and care

    A definite must have for insertion.

    This little lense holder makes filling and inserting simple. I even know that 9 drops of purilens plus are exactly what is needed to make the correct dome to float on to my eye without bubbles

    My favorite inserter

    I like this inserter for two main reasons:

    1. It can stand on its own while I fill the cup with saline

    2. I can easily align the lens by looking through to a mirror or countertop

    Use these daily with hybrid CL

    My ophthalmologist gave me one of these to use to insert my first pair of hybrids and I have been using them for several years. I cannot balance my lens to fill with non preserved saline for insertion due to a partially amputate left ring finger and a nerve injury to my right hand, but this gives me both support and control for great insertion. I would not be successful without this! NOTE FROM REBECCA: So glad that's working well for you. Just thought it would be helpful to also mention in this context the Dalsey Adaptives plunger stand at http://dalseyadaptives.net/store/products/see-green-plunger-stand/ - used a lot by folks with tremor, nerve issues in the insertion hand, Parkinsonism, etc. Basically it allows you to put your eye on the lens rather than put the lens on the eye - the lens is stable at all times. - Rebecca
