There is more than one way to insert your lenses: Inserter Method and Tripod Finger Method. We recommend you pick the method that works best for you.
Always wash hands with mild soap and dry well with a lint-free towel before handling lenses.
Place the lens on the Inserter OR stabilize the lens on three fingers by pinching together your thumb, index and middle fingers to support the lens.
Fill the bowl of the lens with preservative-free saline. SynergEyes recommends using preservative-free solutions with your SynergEyes VS lenses.
Lean forward and look down at the floor. Face should be parallel to the floor. Sometimes it’s helpful to place a mirror flat on the counter to look into as you insert the lens.
With the finger of one hand, hold upper lid by placing one finger on the base of the lashes and pin the lid to the brow bone.
Using the opposite hand, with palm facing up, pull the lower lid down with free finger, holding the eye wide open.
Gently place lens on eye by sliding lens inside lower lid and applying directly to eye. If using inserter, remove inserter from lens by squeezing it.
Tip 1. To avoid bubbles, fill lens bowl up completely with saline. Bubbles may make lens uncomfortable and produce irregular vision.
Tip 2. To avoid spilling saline solution, center the contact lens in the middle of the inserter, or the middle of your three fingers if using the tripod finger method.
TIP 3. Keep both eyes open to help with lens insertion.
TIP 4. Lid control is important. Release the eye lid when the lens is fully in place and the inserter is out of the eye.
There is more than one way to remove your scleral lenses: Remover Method or Finger Removal Method. We recommend you pick the method that works best for you.

The lens should pop out. Make sure you catch it with a towel.
TIP 1. It’s easier to remove the lens if you are sitting down.
TIP 2. Remove lens from the bottom of the lens, not the center.
TIP 3. When removing the lens from the tool, use a slight twisting motion instead of pulling the lens straight off.
