The Megasoft bandage lens is a therapeutic soft contact lens for protecting a large area of the eye from external influences.
The Megasoft therapeutic soft bandage lens is used as an aid to help repair eye tissue, among other things. The lens is extra large in order to protect a large portion of the anterior segment of the eye from external influences.
Features of Megasoft:
- First choice in virtually all indications for bandage lenses
- Use when standard bandage lenses regularly fall out
This lens is especially recommended for protection after glaucoma surgery where a scleral flap has been created to allow aqueous drainage to reduce the pressure in the eye. The Megasoft is also used for symblepharon, or fusion of the conjunctiva of the eyelids with the eyeball. A qualified optometrist, ophthalmologist or contact lens specialist can diagnose this condition.
The Megasoft bandage lens can be worn for a period of up to four weeks. After this period, the lens must be carefully cleaned and disinfected. It is advisable to use two lenses per eye. This allows the lenses to be alternated and there is sufficient time to clean and disinfect the removed lenses. If the lens can no longer be adequately cleaned and disinfected, it should always be replaced.
Before using your soft lenses, always read the package insert that is provided by your contact lens specialist.
To properly clean, disinfect, store and insert your Megasoft lenses, we recommend Ever Clean Plus in combination with Lacrifresh Moisture.
The Ever Clean system is suitable for all lens types and is free of preservatives. It consists of a disinfectant based on 3% hydrogen peroxide combined with an innovative dual-focus effervescent tablet that provides thorough lens cleaning, disinfection, neutralization and moistening in just 2 hours. Unlike the standard Ever Clean liquid, povidone and lipase have been added to Ever Clean Plus. Povidone is an effective and long-acting humectant that contributes to the stability of the tear film. The enzyme lipase is effective against lipids that adhere both centrally and at the edges of the lens surface, contributing to thorough lipid cleaning.
Lacrifresh Moisture is a humectant drop and contains high-quality hyaluronic acid. This is a substance occurring naturally in the body that provides a stable and long-lasting tear film and acts as a lubricant between the contact lens, cornea and eyelid.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which contact lens is best for my eyes?It depends entirely on you and your eyes. During an eye exam an eye care specialist assesses your eyes and looks at the strength and shape of your eye, among other things. You personal situation is also evaluated: When do you want to use them? How often? In what work environment? Based on all the measurements, you can choose the best lenses together with the specialist. Visit your nearest optician for an eye exam or consultation.
How do I clean my lenses?It is important to clean your contact lenses daily. The moment you remove your lenses, it is important to clean, rinse and disinfect them with the recommended lens solution as prescribed or advised by your contact lens specialist. Contact lens cases should also be emptied, cleaned and rinsed daily, as they can be a source of bacterial growth. Importantly, lenses, lens cases and other lens-related products should not come into contact with (tap) water because of the increased risk of microbial keratitis.
