    Description (Rebecca's)

    June 2022

    At last! A low-budget scleral lens stand. Kudos to DMV (more about them below) for figuring this out and bringing it to market at such a low price point. I was so pleased that they decided to do this - and gratified that they let me have some input on the design before finalizing it. Please make sure to tell your doctor about this product. Even if it's not the right tool for you, it's going to be the right tool for some other patient.

    What excites me about this product, coming from this very well known manufacturer, is that it will mean more people learn about and try stands earlier in their training process - so they don't arrive at that point of frustration (and sometimes hopelessness!) that many have experienced on the scleral lens journey. I imagine that for some people, this will be a long term tool, while for others, it will be a stepping-stone to a See Green system. 

    My picture is not great quality even with the light box, so it's hard to tell that this really is clear!

    Stand

    This is a no-frills yet thoroughly practical scleral lens plunger stand. It consists of a flat, translucent base, a skinny clear plastic tube, and a vented plunger.

    The main thing I gave DMV feedback on when they were putting this together was the height of the tube. While it needed to be short enough for stability, it also needed to be tall enough for an average height human to use without their nose bumping the countertop :) I feel that they found a good happy medium. We all know that we have unique needs. One adaptation I can easily see some people using is to invert a glass or mug and place the stand on top of it for more height.

    Light transmission potential?

    This is designed as a stand, not a lighted inserter.

    However, because of its clear/translucent materials, which conduct light, some light WILL come through the plunger unless you place the stand on something dark. For example, if you place it on a light-colored counter or a piece of white paper, and look through the plunger, you will see light. You can also point a light at it (such as a penlight) to increase light transmitting through to the plunger opening.

    Users with poorer vision will still need a light source. Some will decide this isn't for them. Others will do a bit of DIY here and rig their own light source. Please share your DIYs in the reviews for everyone's benefit!

    Size & height

    • Disassembled: The base is 2 3/4" diameter and 1/4" high, and the tube is 4" long and 7/16" diameter. 
    • Assembled, it is about 4 1/4" tall

    A big shout-out to DMV

    DMV Corp is our industry's long-time supplier of lens handling devices. We have been purchasing products from them for more than 15 years. 

    When Dr Patterson reached out to me about this project, I was thrilled - especially at their commitment to keeping it at the lowest possible price point. Finding a low-cost approach required real ingenuity. I was happy to be able to have some input into details like the height.

    This product is a service to the community rather than a money-maker for DMV. 

    Profits go to Dry Eye Foundation

    We purchase this product for $4.99 and market it up to $9.49. Our cost for packaging, labeling and handling is approximately  $0.50.  The remaining $4.00 goes to the Dry Eye Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is working hard to help the dry eye and the scleral lens communities.

    Great gadget!

    I bought this when I fractured my wrist and could not insert my own lenses. I could not use this for inserting my lenses, but it helped me and my hubby with our two-person method. I will try again when I am healed up and more confident. It seems like it would work perfectly!

    scleral stand

    The new scleral stand is much easier to use than the green light product and much less expensive. It also is much easier to pack when traveling. I highly recommend this product.

    Scleral Stand

    It is great! I was using a styrofoam cup, and it was tearing up. It was cumbersome to pack for trips. It felt awkward to pull out a cup to assist with my application of the lens! Now, I can take the stand apart, pack it, and set it up with ease when I travel.

    Perfect for travel

    I bought this to carry in my travel bag. I bring it with me wherever I go. This stand works great when you need to reinsert your lenses after a midday rinse. I am so glad I found this stand.
