Eyeball 3D Screw-Top Contact Lens Storage Case
Advantages: The lids screw on smoothly, quirky design, keeps my lenses in tip top condition
Disadvantages: Naked eyeballs...
I have an absolute aversion to eyeballs, so I wasn't particularly surprised when my darling cousin arrived with a gift for me a couple of months back and it turned out to be a contact lens soaking case featuring a large staring eyeball. He's so thoughtful... As a regular contact lens wearer I like to swap and change my cases, not least because after so many years using the standard white cases has become so boring that these 'fun' cases inject a little change into my morning and evening routine.
Not that this one is 'fun', in fact it turns my stomach when I see it sometimes - the connection between contact lenses and the eyeball might be a good one but for someone who dislikes eyeballs it's a bit icky! Mine is the exact one you can see in the piccie above; a single blue domed eyeball with the other lens bowl being covered with a more traditional shaped and styled lid which features a pretty blue wavy design. All I can say is thank god it doesn't feature two of the eyeballs, otherwise I think there's a fair to middling chance I'd end up in a state of panic every time I went into the bathroom!
The bowls are quite deep in comparison to the modern style of shallow bowls, this is fine for me but this case uses noticeably more contact lens soaking solution than others I've used in the recent past which is something that may put some people off. The sides of the bowls have a slightly textured feel to prevent your lenses sticking if they happen to come out of the solution for whatever reason; the inner surface of each lid also has this texturing but it's done more deeply to create visible ridges in case your lens case gets turned upside down, this stops your lenses sticking to the lids when you turn it the right way up again - important as in the past I've lost lenses due to them drying out when they stuck to a portion of the case which wasn't covered in solution, and with the spiraling cost of contact lenses this is obviously something you'd want to avoid.
The lids screw on nicely, irritatingly they're not marked with L or R so you need to remember which lenses you're covering with the eyeball lid - as someone with an extremely poor memory I have had to mark the bottom of the case myself to ensure I don't accidentally put my lenses in the wrong way round. I screw the flatter lid on first as once the bulkier eyeball lid is in place it doesn't give your fingers as much room to screw the other one on which can make things a bit fiddly. Once I'd got over my repulsion of touching the eyeball I found this domed shape was very easy to screw on, the smooth roundness gave my fingers an excellent grip and the size makes it very easy to use even when I have contact lens solution all over my hands.
I recommend this as a quirky contact lens soaking case, admittedly it's not my favourite design but that's a personal taste thing (ie. I think naked eyeballs are in bad taste!) and I know other people will find it fantastic. The blue colour is absolutely beautiful and my five year old is impressed that it matches the colour of my eyes, I'm not sure if it's available in other colours but if not the manufacturer missed a trick as I'm sure lots of non-blue eyed people would love an eyeball case with the same colour as their eyes. Mad people, obviously.
Summary: An unusual design of contact lens soaking case - not my cup of tea, but I'm sure others will love it
