USE INSTRUCTIONS See-Green®™Lens Inserter
To attach plunger to Light: Wet the
bottom of the plunger with sterile saline.
While holding the bottom of the plunger,
insert the LED bulb in the small hole
with a twisting motion so only the clear
part of the LED bulb enters the plunger.
Inserting your lens: Follow your doctor’s instructions for
inserting your lens.
1) The lid spread is everything! Hold
the lids by the margins, where the lashes meet the lids. The
contact points should be centered so as to form a perfect circle.
Hold both lids open. Tuck your chin to your chest. Look straight
down. Keep the plunger centered on your eye by focusing on
the green light in the hole of the plunger. Continue
approaching your eye smoothly and steadily. You will feel the
fluid, but you are not done yet. Press lens onto the eye.
2) Capture the lens with the eyelids by releasing the lids. Don’t squint. Maintain
the upward pressure on the lens.
3) Release the lens from plunger by squeezing completely. Maintain the upward
pressure against the eye, while squeezing to release the lens. The lens has now
been released onto your eye. Stay squeezed while you retract the plunger away
from the eye.
Push Upwards and Squeeze Stay squeezed while you retract the plunger away
AID IN SCLERAL LENS INSERTION
Specifically Crafted for Scleral Lens Patients
Our stands hold plungers and lenses securely while being prepared for insertion.
They provide a base to steady your hands and allow you to get your eye close to the
lens prior to lifting it up to the eye. The stand on the left is for use with the SeeGreen®™ Lens Inserter. The slot allows the wire to enter and to come up as the
plunger is put on and lifted up from the stand. Some people need to use two hands
to hold open their lids as shown in above. When using the stand this way, instead
of raising the plunger to your eye, lower your head smoothly and steadily while
focusing on the green light in the hole in the plunger until you will feel the fluid.
Press your eye downward onto the lens. Capture the lens with the eyelids by
releasing the lids. Lift up your head, and the lens should come off the plunger if
there isn’t too much suction. If necessary, release the lens from the plunger by
squeezing the plunger as described in 3) above.
To turn light on and off:
– Press rubber covered button on side of box.
– If your fingers are weak, turn box on end with button against table and press
down with hand.
The LED bulb (light emitting diode) uses very little power from the battery
when in use. You should get over 1,000 hours of use from the LED before
needing to change the batteries. If you do need to change the batteries,
follow these steps:
1. Unscrew the two screws that hold the cover
on the white case.
2. Lift off the lid to expose the AAA battery
holder. 3. Remove and replace the two AAA
batteries. 4. Place the battery holder back in the
case; put the lid in place, and screw the two
screws back into place.
TIPS FOR STANDS
– Having your lens set up ready to go on the
stand and getting near the lens prior to lifting it
to your eye will reduce the chance of saline
spilling out and developing bubbles.
– If you need both hands to hold your eye lids
open and you have difficulty bending over far
enough to get your eye near the stand, then use
a bowl turned upside down to elevate the stand.
LED and WIRE Maintenance
Wipe down the black wire, LED bulb, white
battery case and rubber button with a clean
damp cloth after each use to get the saline off.

Since 2007, our products have helped thousands of people overcome the natural
aversion and difficulties of inserting large scleral lenses. Our products provide the
ultimate solution for those people experiencing difficulty applying their scleral lenses.
How our See-Green®™ Products Help
Most users have a typical level of vision impairment and dexterity, but find that
the green light gives them the alignment they need to insert the lens quickly
without stress or experiencing the occasional misaligned and painful insertion.
For those with a general aversion to inserting a lens, we are advised that
focusing the eye on the green light, which is further out than the lens, helps
reduce stress and prevent flinching and involuntarily darting away of the eye.
Most users find the stands help them by having the lens filled with saline and
ready to go. The user can get close to the lens and have a short distance to lift
the plunger to the eye and have more reliable, repetitive success centering the
lens and avoiding bubbles. Those with unsteady hands find the stands essential.
The challenge for others is the difficulty of spreading both eye lids open wide
enough. The stands allow such users to free up both hands to pry open their
eyelids while slowly lowering their eye on to the lens.
Users with low vision, vision in one eye only, or use of only one hand find the
