Q-Ball / foldable contact lens holder

Q-Ball
Q-Ball

People usually put contact lens on fingertips and then wear on eyes. However, this approach may carry bacteria to the lenses through finger touches and may cause discomfort or diseases in eyes. The innovative contact lens holders, Q-Ball, not only provide sanitary preservation for lens but also offer clean flexible interfaces between contact lens and the fingers. The soft silicone material is employed in the design. Thus, the users can flip the holder edges and shape the holders as stable bases between the lens and fingers. With supporting of the Q-Ball, the users can wear contact lens sanitarily and cleanly.
