PROSE Disinfection Case

PROSE Disinfection Case



About the PROSE Disinfection Case

  • For use with hydrogen peroxide disinfections systems such as ClearCare
  • Can safely accommodate any PROSE or scleral lens 16mm and up
  • Catalyst disc NOT included. If you use a catalyst with your PROSE case, you will need to purchase a ClearCare (or similar) kit regularly to get the catalyst disc.
  • In the photo above, you can see the dark catalyst attached near the bottom of the ClearCare case; you'll need to remove this and drop it into the PROSE case. (NOTE: The ClearCare case is not included with your purchase of the PROSE case; it's pictured here only for comparison.)
  • Please note that the PROSE case no longer has a stem for installing the catalyst disc because of recent changes to the ClearCare kits - the catalyst is meant to float loose in the peroxide. 
  • Fills with 1.5oz / 44mL ClearCare per use.
  • Not suitable for ordinary RGP lenses or soft lenses.

Description (by Rebecca)

The PROSE Disinfection Case is the only case suitable for disinfection of PROSE and full size scleral lenses due to the large baskets provided for each lens. It's designed for use with hydrogen peroxide systems. For questions, please contact your lens care provider. You are always welcome to call us and we'll share what you know, but with specialty contact lenses and prosthetic devices it is important to obtain and follow the specific directions given by your lens provider.

Case Modification - According to Boston Sight:

"Clear Care® recently updated their disinfection cases; the new cases have a blue cover. The neutralization discs are much more difficult to remove. Often, the stem of the Clear Care case breaks off and remains lodged in the center of the disc, making it impossible to attach the disc to the BostonSight PROSE disinfection case (PROSE case). The new cases also have a slightly narrower diameter. Even if you are able to remove the neutralization disc without breaking the stem of the Clear Care case, it is more difficult to apply and later remove from the PROSE case.

To remedy this situation, you must remove the arbor of the PROSE case with pliers, allowing the neutralization disc from the Clear Care case to sit on the bottom of the PROSE case.  When filling the PROSE case with solution, the disc may float to the top, but will be pushed back down to the bottom of the case as the patient inserts the basket assembly into the basket. The disc might not sit flat on the bottom of the case this is acceptable.

To remove the arbor from the bottom of the basket assembly of the PROSE case, simply hold the basket with one hand. Using pliers, grasp the arbor with your other hand, and gently bend the arbor until it breaks."

Usage and care

What is the PROSE disinfection case used for?

The PROSE case is designed for disinfecting PROSE and similar lenses in hydrogen peroxide based systems.

Instructions for use

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly with non-moisturizing soap and dry them completely with a lint-free towel before you begin.
  2. Place your device in the palm of your hand. Place one drop of Optimum ESC by Lobob on the outside surface of the device and rub for fifteen seconds. Place another drop on the inner surface and then rub again for fifteen seconds.
  3. *DO NOT rub the device between your fingers to clean it. This can cause the device to warp.
  4. While handling the PROSE device gently by the edges, rinse the device thoroughly with preservative-free saline, prescribed for you.
  5. Gently separate the basket from the basket assembly by pulling the tab located near the arbor so that the basket is horizontal.
  6. Place the right device, bowl side up, into the white basket. While keeping the basket horizontal, bring the basket assembly down onto the basket. To avoid losing or damaging your PROSE devices, DO NOT attempt to bring the basket up to the basket assembly.
  7. Repeat for the left device and insert into the empty basket.
  8. Fill the PROSE disinfection case with Clear Care solution to the fill line. It is ok if the neutralization disc floats up to the top – the basket will push it back down.
  9. Place the basket assembly in the case and secure the cover. DO NOT over tighten the cover because the threads may split and break. It is ok if the disc does not sit flat at the bottom of the case. It will still work properly, even if it is wedged on the side of the case.
  10. To properly allow the Clear Care solution to neutralize, devices must remain in the case for AT LEAST six hours. * Note: If using PeroxiClear by Bausch and Lomb, the directions on the product will indicate the disinfection is complete in 4 hours. However, we recommend a minimum of 6 hours.
*NOTE: If you must remove the devices before the disinfection process has ended, rinse them thoroughly with the saline, prescribed for you. Then soak them in fresh saline, in a clean contact lens case for at least 5 minutes. Repeat with fresh saline solution for an additional 5-minute soak. Rinse again with preservative-free saline before re-applying to your eye. Clean the white contact lens case with an alcohol wipe and air dry. 

Cleaning and care

These cases are somewhat delicate. Please use care opening and closing them. Do not over-tighten the cap. Be gentle opening and closing the baskets.

Troubleshooting

Concerned that there is no catalyst receptacle on your case? Please see adjacent tab about the case modification.

Warranty information

If your case breaks within the first three months of use, we will replace it at no cost.
