Most lenses are kept in individual protective cases that add bulk to laboratory coat pockets (Fig 1). A scleral depressor can easily fall out of a pocket. A wooden case designed to contain three lenses (ie, 20 diopter (D), 28 D, and 90 D) was recently described.1 We describe an easy modification of an existing multilens case that holds a 20-D or panretinal lens, a 28-D or 30-D lens, a 90-D lens, a four-mirror gonioscopic lens, and a scleral depressor.A 15 × 10 × 2.5-cm case with precut openings for the large panretinal lens, 30-D lens, and 90-D lens was obtained (Indirect Conoid Lens Case, Volk, Mentor, Ohio). The scleral depressor was positioned above the two large precut openings, and a knife was used to cut the sponge the length of the
