Universal Barrel Style Contact Lens Case
Advantages: Simple to use, durable, works very well, keeps my lenses in tip top condition.
I have been wearing glasses for a few years now and as I find myself having to wear them for every waking moment my husband I like to wear contact lenses as well to mix things up, and for when I just don't fancy wearing glasses all the time.
I receive contact lenses from Specsavers, and I pay via direct debit. I pay just over £20 a month and I receive three months lenses at a time, bottles of solution and one of these contact lens barrel cases. I wear monthly contact lenses and when I am not using them they need to be soaked in solution and stored safely to avoid dirt or dust settling on them and to prevent any damage happening to them as well. That is where this barrel case comes in.
This case is wonderfully clever in design and remarkably simple to use. The case is a round plastic case complete with a small cage built in to the lid. The case holds the solution for soaking my contact lenses and when unscrewing the lid it is simple to turn the cage, built in to the lid, out and then stand this up on the top of the lid. The cage, that is built into the lid, has two curved sides, one to hold each contact lens, and the cage is built very well in order to hold my curved contact lenses. The cage clicks closed over the lenses and holds them in place with ease. There is no way for the lenses to slip out, or become damaged, other than if one of the lenses was stuck near the top of the cage and was accidentally caught when closing the cage, but I've managed to avoid doing this with basically no effort on my part.
This case is well made and very durable, with each side of the cage having markings to help differentiate between lenses, with an R and a symbol (usually a heart), and this is very functional to avoid inserting the wrong lens into the wrong eye. This is especially important with different prescriptions and to prevent any spread of germs from one eye to another. It is very simple to see which lens is which in a matter of seconds, even without my glasses on first, so that is all I can ask for really. The solution that I place into this holder does not leak at all, even if turned upside down, meaning I can pack my contact lenses when I am heading out in the morning, say for a swimming session, and then insert them before I go out for the day without worrying about the solution leaking out. The lenses are held in their cage within the solution, which is essential as it keeps them moist and soft, meaning I can put my lenses back in the next morning without worrying about dirt, germs, dryness or any other problems.
Overall I feel that these barrel style cases are absolutely fantastic. They keep my contact lenses submerged completely in solution and they are very simple to use. It takes me just a few minutes to insert my contact lenses in the morning, or remove them at night, and this case is very simple to use. There is nothing fiddly to this, despite the small nature of this product, and my lenses have been kept in great condition since using these pots, something that is very important to me when spending over £20 a month on contact lenses. I have had no problems with these at all and that is the reason that I am rating this case 5/5 stars. I will definitely continue to use these in the future, as I receive them as part of my Specsavers subscription and these can be picked up for around £1 each from websites such as eBay.
Summary: A fantastic contact lens barrel style case.
