I have a pair of 2.5x Designs For Vision surgical loupes that I bought in 1995. The loupes are in great shape, but the foam padding in the case is not. Over 18 years, it has dried out and sheds tiny green particles that stick to my loupes, which have to be cleaned off every time I use them. This Pick N Pluck foam was a perfect replacement. I have a wooden loupes case, with interior dimensions of roughly 7" x 3.5", and about 3" deep. The thick foam block is just slightly larger than the loupes case in depth ("top to bottom") and transverse ("side-to-side") width; I did not trim it in these dimensions, because slightly overstuffing the case prevents the foam from dislodging (I also used a couple drops of glue). The foam is easily trimmed with a #10 scalpel blade to fit the front-to-back dimension (that is, from the hinged "back" of the case to the "front" with the clasp). The eggcrate-shaped foam sheet can then be trimmed to fit in the lid of the case. I did not use the third, flat sheet of foam. The foam is pre-scored in small blocks, so a custom-shaped cavity for the loupes can be carved out using an Adson forceps and a #10 blade to dissect along the existing planes.
