Check your lens size. Those of you with lenses 15mm or less probably need the one for mini-sclerals and hybrids instead. 

About the EZI 

  • Ring style lens inserter
  • Helpful alternative for insertion challenges
  • Recommended only for scleral lenses >15mm

Description (by Rebecca)

I first stocked this product in 2015. To me, it looked and felt the thing that held the jewel-shaped hard candy when I was a kid. But there's a lot of people out there that have difficulty with lens insertion and need creative solutions. In these past few years I've had more than enough feedback from actual users of the ring applicator to indicate it's a very useful tool for some, though - like everything - not all users. I've actually been surprised at how positive the feedback is. So at this point the worst I can say of it is that it feels overpriced to me, though I've rarely had a complaint about it.

I heard from a customer in 2018 with 15mm lenses who had difficulty with the lens not coming off the applicator. I contacted the manufacturer and they recommended trying the one with the smaller bowl - for mini sclerals and hybrids - so we are now stocking that one as well, and to be on the safe side I'm going to suggest that those with 15mm lenses try that one first.

Life Saver! (Or Vision Saver)

I had RK surgery in 1982 that corrected my vision, but left my corneas badly scarred. So, recently, after lens replacement surgery, my "best possible" corrected vision was still bad. The scleral lenses made the final tweak to my vision and corrected my severe astigmatism.

After days of trying (and failing) 20+ times to use the DMV Scleral Cup, I gave up. On Christmas day, I decided I wanted to see my grandson. I tried the ring applicator. This has turned out to be the easiest way to insert the lenses. It took a while to master, but it was much easier to control the placement. It was actually similar to the feel of inserting my hard lenses on my fingertip 45 years ago. It still takes a few times to get the lens in, but the frustration is gone. I recommend it.

Love it

I love the ring what you need to do is close your eye as soon as you know it's in there and then pull your hand away. Just get used to it this product is amazing I love it love it love it.

I have small eyes and on my right eye , I have to take 3M sensitive tape and tape up the lid as well as taping the lower part of my eye pulling it down and tape it. This allows me to put the lens in easier without touching my lashes and take the tape off and I'm ready to go NOTE FROM REBECCA: Thanks for the review Terri - really appreciate the detail, I'm sure there will be those that benefit from the suggestions & about tape too! - Rebecca

Disapointed with this product

I was hoping it would make it easier for me and help with the air bubbles. When i tried it and put in my eye the lens would not come off the ring so I had to remove the lens with the ring. I would appreciate it if could find out why or how to make this work $10.00 is a lot of money not to mention I was really hoping to get rid of the air bubbles. Oh really appreciate the fast shipping. NOTE FROM REBECCA: Hi there! Yikes, that's actually the first time I have heard of that happening. I am sorry! I will talk to the manufacturer and then give you a call if that's OK and see if we can't troubleshoot. - If you need an alternative, perhaps try the inserter stand at dalseyadaptives.net - that will hold a scleral cup with a lens so that you can "overfill" it, wait for any bubbles to dissipate and put your eye on it rather than having to raise it to your eye. - Rebecca
