Not OP, but I used to use that style of contact lens storage and each of those tubes holds a pair of contacts in them. The A and B would either be because they are different prescriptions for different uses or because they swap back and forth on some sort of schedule for whatever reason.

Here is a link to the best picture of these I could find on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Clear-Care-Cleaning-Disinfecting-Travel/dp/B00FDXACA2/. One or both of the blue and white sides is marked with an R or L. The gray gear looking thing on the bottom does something (reacts with the soaking solution, I think) and I think got replaced periodically, but it has been a long time since I have used that style case so I am a bit fuzzy on the specifics.

edit - Found this listing that has more pictures better showing lens holder looks outside of the tube: https://www.amazon.com/Mosuch-Plastic-Contact-Cleaning-Lenses/dp/B01MZ4OD3I/ If you zoom in you can barely make out the "R" on the one side. Could also just be that my work laptop's monitor is not the best and that is obvious on something better.

Usually you have three things:

  1. Red Cap solution: It's milky, and you use it to clean the lens completely. DO NOT LET IT TOUCH YOUR EYES.
  2. Blue Cap Solution/Conditioner: I usually have the Bausch and Lomb stuff. It says conditioner on it. This is what I use in my contact case to soak overnight.
  3. Saline Solution (Sterile, Preservative Free): Just a simple saline solution. I recommend Purilens. This is what I put in the lens itself before wearing. (https://www.amazon.com/PuriLens-Preservative-Saline-Twelve-Bottles/dp/B000X98XS4)

    So I repeat the same step every morning.

  4. Wash hands with perfume free soap. Dry off with lint-free towel.
  5. Take contact out of case put in palm of hand. Use extra conditioner and lightly rub. Rinse again with more conditioner.
  6. Fill Lens with Saline Solution. Put in Eye.
  7. Dry out case, and leave open.

    At night:

  8. Take contact out, place in case, fill case with Conditioner
  9. Once or twice a week, before this step, I gently clean the contact with the red cap cleaner solution and rinse thoroughly with conditioner before putting in case.

PuriLens works great for me for filling my scleral lenses for insertion. Amazon has a year's supply for $40 - https://www.amazon.com/PuriLens-Preservative-Saline-Twelve-Bottles/dp/B000X98XS4

I'm sorry that your eye doctors aren't working with you until your scleral lenses fit comfortably. I've worn scleral lenses for 4 years now and have loved them - they never hurt my eyes like RGP lenses could. My vision doesn't get noticeably worse as the days goes on like they did with RGPs.

Ask your eye doctors if they can check the fit. There are no nerve endings in your sclera so the lenses should not be hurting your eyes.

I use PuriLens with my sclerals. I’m happy with it and it’s preservative free.

PuriLens on Amazon CAN

You could need a better fit, they fogged up when dry and needed a refit.
I wouldn’t store them dry, my doctor recommended this brand of saline

I'm in the minority that has to wear hard contacts (mine happens to be a scleral lens) so I'm posting my plan since you can't toss these like soft contacts and you usually only have one pair

It's relatively simple, I'm bringing in a hard contact lens remover, a simple contact lens case pre-filled with contact saline. I might bring in one of the sealed saline vials in with me. I plan to pop a squat somewhere to take out the contact into my lens case right before the sunset set that I attend or while I'm eating dinner

I'm not going to try and bring in the usual prescribed pH solution and disinfectant solution since that has to stay upright in the [disinfecting canister] (https://www.clearcaresolution.com/images/prod-triple-action.png) to work effectively (but you should do this everyday after you leave the festival grounds). I'm not planning on bringing in any eye drops

It's a container for cleaning your contacts using Clear Care.

It uses Hydrogen Peroxide to clean built up proteins off the lenses, and God help you if you put your contacts in before they're done cleaning.

Contact lense people: this solution has a $4 coupon making it two bottles for $10 which is a pretty good deal

u/foodietraveler · 1 pointr/onebag

I'll third this. I traveled 15-months with (at one point - 6) Clear Care hydrogen peroxide travel size bottles and one of these. I've used a spoon to pop the lid off to refille.

u/uwue · 2 pointsr/onebag


Clean and refill: pop the lid off by jamming your pocketknife between the lid and the body and working it away from the bottle. I've been using the same bottle for 7 years for 2 day-5 week trips. Hasn't let me down yet.

u/ssup3rm4n · 2 pointsr/trees

Can we just use regular saline solution?

Such as this?

u/smoogrish · 1 pointr/Keratoconus

What works the best for me and sucks but you have to do it is you HAVE to look down into the center of the lens. You cant look sideways like with other contacts. If you dont honestly just forget it. It took me so long to get used to it and it fucking sucked for a week but now i get it in 1-2 tries.

Even if it hurts you have to do it or else it just wont work! I have the best contact eye clamp in the business from years of KC and even that didnt help until I learned to look down at the lens while inserting

Also to save on fluid if you dont already:

Are you serious? I think you answered your own question " this involves my eyes I'm a bit weary"


u/GentleLady · 2 pointsr/IAmA

I had a cornea transplant last November. My keratoconus hydropped and I was blind for awhile in my right eye before the surgery.

If you still have the really bad night dryness I suggest getting gel drops. I use the genteal gel every night to help keep mine hydrated. Word of caution, this gel is goopy when it goes on. I tend to associate it with the feeling of someone accidentally jizzing in your eye. I'm going to assume you have never had this happen though. So, lets just say it isn't a pleasant sensation.

Also, for eye drops a more viscous drop will help more than just regular drops do. Boston makes a solution for rigid gas permeable contact lenses. I use this instead of the regular eye drops. It seems to hydrate and coat my cornea longer.

Both of these can be found at Wal-Mart. Don't get them at CVS or Walgreens because they give you a small tube at a ridiculous price.

I use these about five times a day along with a steroid to help keep my eye from rejecting the cornea down the road.

Also when my cornea dries out I can feel the stitches and my eye lid tends to stick to my cornea too. I just lift the lid up gently and put the Boston in and after I get it open just put a little of the genteal drops in.

I'm glad your cornea has healed all the way with out any serious harm.

u/indecisivesquirrel · 1 pointr/bodymodification

That looks like a hypertrophic scar. They're caused by irritation during the healing period.

Have you bumped your piercing recently? Do you move/fiddle with it in any way or do you leave it alone completely?

If I were you, I would rinse it once a day with saline solution and otherwise LITHA (leave it the hell alone) until it heals completely.
