Contact Lens Common Sense!


Let me share a story with you. I’ve had spectacles for roughly 18 years now. As long as I can remember. I’v also been called “four-eyes” for as long as I can remember. So one day, when I was 15, I decided to do something about it. I picked up my first pair of contact lenses. They were pretty cool, except for one thing. They were a nuisance to put on and take off. The last straw was when I was in front of the mirror, and I was about to put the contact lens in, and the fan was on behind me… The contact lens caught the wind and flew off my fingertip, onto the mirror. When I tried peeling the lens off, I managed to peel off half the lens. That was it for contact lenses.

The problem with lenses has always been application and removal. Not only is it a daunting process, most people a scared out of using them because it’s so frightening to see your jittering fingertip slowly approach your pupil. Three designers set out to change that incredibly clumsy experience. The Lenspack is a contact lens case, fluid vial, and lens applicator and removal device all in one. While lens and fluid cases are pretty common, the applicator separates the Lenspack from the rest. A collapsible silicone sleeve holds the lens tactfully while you gently place it in your eye. Removal is also incredibly easy as the silicone tip has little bumps that catch the lens easily, taking it off the eyeball like an absolute pro. Raise your hands if you’re waiting for this to hit the market!
