    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.

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

    The EZI Lens Applicator ring provides these unique features and benefits:

    • One finger lens insertion
    • Lens self-positioning
    • Less air entrapment

    • Works with scleral lenses 15mm and larger
    • Flexible band fits most finger sizes
    • The EZi Lens Applicator ring is made of pliable medical grade plastic. The ring expands to accommodate a range of finger sizes.

    Sclera applicator ring

    Delivery was pretty slow, and I think the price was high for a small plastic ring, but I am happy with the product itself. Having always inserted my old contact lenses with one finger, I found the two-finger plunger applicator a bit clumsy. The ring solved the problem and is much easier for me to use.

    Hi Anna,

    Thanks for writing a very fair review. I'm glad to hear that inserting your lenses is easier with the EZI. In terms of delivery, it looks like the USPS was rather slow getting your order to you, and for that we apologize. Most First Class packages seem to be making it within 3-5 business days, but there are inevitably some that take longer than that.

    Thanks again for your feedback!

    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
