These large hard contact lenses from 1940 were called haptic or scleral lenses because they rested only on the sclera or white outer portion of the eye.

The un-sterile case is fitted with blue velvet and contains the original rubber suction holder. The red silk lined lid is marked Scrivens Ltd London and Midlands.
