    Rebecca's description

    I have been testing products for use examining my lenses after insertion (in case of bubbles), and still haven't found quite the right thing. For me personally, i-Chek's lights are too bright, making it hard for me see my lenses well enough... but then, I don't know how much of my problem is also presbyopia! I know, however, that there are others for example in our Facebook group who also find it too bright.

    However... for many people, this tool clearly works very well, and as we all know by now, different tools work for different people! I have heard from plenty of who use this regularly, so I decided to stock it.

    Please post your experiences!

    i-Check Illuminated Mirror

    I only have been wearing sclerals for 6 months, but have worn either hard or soft contact lenses for over 40 years. Putting in contacts was not the issue for me. Seeing bubbles reliably with only a mirror and the light on my phone (as my eye care professional suggested) was not working for me.

    This mirror is my saving grace! This product helped me make peace with my sclerals. I recently took a trip and this mirror came along too!

    Worthless

    Mirror is worthless for checking for bubbles under contacts or for anything else.

    Disappointed

    I really wanted to like this product, but I think it needs some design improvements. The concept is sound--hold it up to your eye and check for bubbles or other issues using the built-in mirror and lights. It falls a little short in practice, however. The mirrored surface does not seem to be reflective enough, and the image seen is quite dark--so dark, in fact, that it's difficult to see anything with enough clarity to be useful. I'll stick with my small mirror and pen light, which haven't failed me yet.

    Best little gadget

    I use this every day to check for air bubbles after inserting scleral lenses.

    So easy & convenient.

    Useful !

    I got this more out of curiosity than from an actual need to spot air bubbles in my scleral lenses. (I do struggle with these damn air bubbles every single days since I've been fit with sclerals, but I can spot them pretty easily using a conventional mirror).

    However I found great use for it as a self-examinating device. The zoom this little device provides is good enough to spot very small or early developping issues on the entire eye and surrounding area, including lashes, lids, lacrimal glands, etc.. (think of developping styes, milia, chalazion, corneal scaring, and many more conditions)

    I found the close-up view of the eyes using this device much better than that from a conventional 10x mirror. So far, the only person able to have such a detailed close-up view of our eyes were ocular specialist, using their slit-lamp microscope.

    In some way, this is the only efficient alternative to self-examine our own eyes, or at the very least spot potentially early developping issues. Of course this serves well at spotting under-lenses air bubbles as well ?
