Metro Optics has the Solutions to your scleral lens care
Scleral lens care is a necessary discussion between patient and practitioner. Unkempt lenses lead to visual distortions, surface wettability issues, patient discomfort or even worse – infection.
You can pull from the internet basic care techniques from credible sources such as the Scleral Lens Education Society, but they all say the same thing… “use a solution recommended by your eye care provider”. So, what IS the recommended care solution? Where do you find non-preserved saline to fill the bowl of the lens?
Realizing the need for eye care practitioners to have the necessary product for their patients, Metro Optics is happy to introduce the Menicon Rigid Lens Care Kits. Complete care kits are available for purchase with your initial sclera lens order which contains a 1 week supply of all solutions the patient needs to care for their lenses, detailed care instructions and instructions on where to purchase product. Included in each care kit is Progent weekly cleaner, scleral lens case, Unique pH Multipurpose solution and one 7-day pack of LacriPure non-preserved saline. This ensures the patient has the correct solutions and is fully educated on the care of their lenses at the time of dispense.
