The S5 Lens Insertion System™

The S5 Lens Insertion System™ system was developed by Dr. Fayiz Mahgoub to eliminate many of the challenges that his patients encountered during lens insertion. The patent pending design is available in two configurations, the S5 Inserter™ and the S5 Mini™.

S5 Inserter™

Hands-free lens stabilization:
  • Gives the user two free hands to hold their eyelids open which helps counter the human blink reflex.
  • Helps reduce spilling of the contact lens insertion solution which decreases the chance of air bubbles getting trapped under the lens.
 
LED light source:
  • Enables the user to more easily align their eye with the center of the lens during insertion.
 
Adjustable height:
  • Allows the user to position the lens at the most comfortable height for insertion.
  • The height from the base of the device to the top of the lens holder can be adjusted from 10.5 inches (27 cm) to 2 ft 6 inches (76 cm).
  • Optimized for lens insertion while standing.

Patient Testimonials

5/5

This really is an amazing invention. I was so terrified about how I was ever going to be able to get these scleral lenses in when I first decided to move forward with them. This insertion system has made such a big difference in getting the lenses in. I was getting so frustrated with the air bubbles and when my doctor finally said let’s try this, I honestly thought I was going to cry when it went in so easily. I was like, did that really just happen? I can’t imagine what I would do without it.

I am a first-time wearer of contact lenses of any kind, so I was concerned that scleral lens insertion would prove to be more of a challenge than I might want to take on. Fortunately, my optometrist introduced me to the S5 Mini during my initial instructional session with her. The contrast in ease with other insertion methods could not be greater! There is a downloadable manual that clearly explains the use and care of the S5 Mini, and its inventor/developer – himself an optometrist – takes care to follow up with any questions you may have about the device. I am still adjusting to my scleral lenses, but the S5 Mini is making the process much smoother.

My doctor and I had three consecutive one-hour sessions to train me on inserting my new scleral lenses. These were unsuccessful due to my abnormally tight eyelids. She recommended I get this device so I could use both hands to hold my eyelids open. The first time I used the S5 Mini I was able to insert the lens in my right eye on the 3rd try, and my really bad left eye on the 2nd attempt! It’s a miracle, and now I can see thanks to this device. Everything about it is brilliant!

My son has Asperger’s and things get very frustrating for him, getting these scleral contacts in for the regular person is challenging having Asperger’s and shaky hands on top of that makes it a NIGHTMARE. I am so thankful for this device. It is worth EVERY penny. Tommy has Keratoconus and cannot really see to insert these contacts so the light feature on it helps him focus. I would highly recommend this product.
