Owl Contact Lens Case
Advantages: Does exactly what it needs to; has a teenage appeal
Disadvantages: Slight pointy 'ears' could cause pocket problems
It's always advisable to change your contact lenses case on a semi regular basis. Experts recommend every few months unless you buy the best quality designs, as the rest are just not designed to sustain the wear and tear of daily use for a long period of time. As a result, it's a good idea to have a good few cases ready to use. This particular one from Kikkerland doesn't have anything special to it in terms of practical use, but it has a good visual design and is easy to use.
This flat style of case I find ideal for transportation. Sitting flat, the lens containers sit next to each other. The eyes of the owl are the screw top lids for the containers, and with a small piece on the plastic below and between them and pointed extensions at the top, it's clear this is meant to be an owl design. Remaining flat, the only thing I find about this particular design for transportation is that if you want to have them in your pocket then the slightly pointed nature of the case means you may end up with a hole in your pocket!
The case is very easy to use. Inside each compartment is a curved interior, with slight ridges at intervals along the inside which make it easier for purchase for the lens. There's the right amount of space for putting a small amount of liquid to then store your lens in. Size wise, it doesn't appear as if there's any difference between this and other standard flat contact lens cases.
The screw tops are solid and definitely water tight. I have come across a very few cases which do let the occasional drop out or become moist around the seals, but ultimately as long as nearly all the solution stays in then it's doing its job okay. A bit annoying if it does but not the most important element.
The case comes in a choice of three colours: blue, green or pink. The blue one is perhaps the most relevant one to boys, but really I get the impression that this is aimed more at teenage girls as a visual style statement as opposed to being practical or for an older or male target market. That I like to try most contact lens cases out hasn't stopped me but I did hesitate; it's clearly not meant for me, which I suppose does make me think twice about where I'd be taking it!
Ultimately it does its job. It's very easy to use and doesn't leak, and aside from the pointy ears causing potential problems in your pockets then there's nothing negative to write about here. Another very effective contact lense case where an original design has been slightly adapted in terms of visuals without compromising how it actually works. This would certainly appeal to teenage girls, especially as I know it can be seen as a bit of a fashion issue when it comes to glasses, contacts and contact cases. Confidence is a big thing when trying to sort your eyesight out, and this could help.
This case is likely to cost easily under £5 from somewhere such as amazon. It's worth the purchase and will likely last a good length of time.
