As a Scleral lens practitioner, you know that scleral contact lenses are an attractive treatment option for patients who have struggled to find a comfortable lens fit in the past.
But, patients must take special care of their scleral lenses, washing their hands thoroughly and filling the bowl of each lens with a nonpreserved saline solution before inserting it in the eye. Using the wrong type of saline solution can cause serious discomfort or infection.
A 2021 study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Optometry highlighted the possible consequences of using a saline solution not designed for scleral lenses. The study found that “off-label multidose preservative-free saline commonly used to rinse and fill scleral lenses before application on the eye may become contaminated with microorganisms once the bottle has been opened. Eye care practitioners and scleral lens patients should be aware of these potential contaminations and prioritize lens, hand, and environmental hygiene to minimize the risk of ocular complications.”

Why Recommend VibrantVue® Scleral Saline to Patients?
You want to provide the best treatment options for your patients. If a patient has an ocular disease, why would you trust just any scleral saline solution? What patients put in their eyes has a direct impact on their vision and ocular health.
Eye care practitioners often send patients to Amazon or another big-box retailer to order a scleral saline solution. VibrantVue®’s Scleral Saline Solution is a high-quality, cost-effective alternative that benefits your practice as well as your patients.
VibrantVue®’s Scleral Saline Solution is only available through eye care professionals like you. Your practice can offer it to patients by stocking inventory and selling it directly to patients, or by sending patients to order through the VibrantVue® website and receiving a partnership revenue credit every month. You may also do a mix of both options.
Every scleral lens patient has access to a free, no-risk sampling program. Once your Visionary Optics account is created, you will receive a VibrantVue’s Scleral Saline Solution sample included in new patient lens orders.
“I was using Addipak saline solution, but I didn’t feel confident recommending it for my more progressive ocular disease patients,” said Dr. Tomasu, Hunter Family Vision. “I was thrilled to learn about VibrantVue’s Scleral Saline Solution. It’s a product I trust with all my ocular disease patients, and I’m excited about the revenue generation opportunity for my practice. Patients can just go to the website and order without any issues, and I can rest easy knowing they are getting a quality product (not just something random off the internet).”
