Default Removing Rigid Gas Permeable Contacts With a Plunger

No, I don't mean the kind you keep in your bathroom. It's a little device with a suction cup that is used to remove gas permeable contact lenses. On the website it looks really easy to use, but isn't it weird to watch this plunger coming at your eye? Does it work as well as advertised?

I use and like those things so if you are considering it I say go for it. Just as long as the contact is in place on the right part of the eye where it is supposed to be you just stick that thing in there and come out with the lens. My only problem is when the contact is out of place somewherethe eye and then it is difficult to get out.

Personally I don't use one - one more thing to keep sterile. My son does use one, however, as he never learnt to remove the lenses using his fingers only. So, yes they do appear to work, but if you can learn how to do without, that is better.

You bring up an interesting point, Knotlob. I don't use this tool either, but I thought it would be great, and it probably is, but it's true that you have to keep them sterilized if they're going to touch your contact lenses. I can see how that might turn some people off.

I found this machine with the plunger attached, so maybe it will put the contact lenses in for you?

Oh, no. I'm not letting one of those things in my house. They're dangerous.

Yeah, I think you're right. Certain plunger-like attachments should be avoided.

Awesome, Barry. What kind do you use? Does it take a long time to get the hang of it?
