We recommend preservative free saline in single use vials:

  • LacriPure in single use vials, by Menicon.  Available online & we stock it in our office
  • ScleralFIL in single use vials, by Bausch & Lomb (this saline is pH buffered).  Available online & we stock it in our office (it has become more difficult to source)

Scleral Lens Insertion Tips:

  • Tuck chin downward towards chest
  • Place lens on LARGE suction cup (inserter must have a hole in the bottom to prevent it from suctioning to your lens)
  • Overfill lens with preservative free saline

Why We Don’t Recommend 4 oz. Bottles of Saline for Filling Scleral Lenses:
See this study which suggest that off-label multi-dose preservative-free saline may become contaminated with microorganisms once the bottle has been opened.  Scleral lens patients should be aware of these potential contaminations.

It is widely felt among scleral lens practitioners that large 4 oz. bottles are no longer sterile 48 hours after opening.  For this reason WE DO NOT RECOMMEND to use multi-dose bottles as filling saline
