SynergEyes® Inc and Duette® Progressive Contact Lenses
SynergEyes, Inc., founded in 2001, recognized the need for a contact lens that would combine the superior visual quality of a rigid gas permeable lens with the comfort and ease of wear of a soft contact lens. The result is a hybrid contact lens. The revolutionary SynergEyes contact lens allows patients to enjoy the best of both worlds – a stable, rigid center with high oxygen permeability that delivers consistently crisp vision and the all-day comfort of a soft lens provided by the soft outer skirt. There are several designs available in the SynergEyes family of contact lenses including a progressive multifocal contact lens for presbyopic (people over 40 years old) patients that has focuses for distance, near, and everything in between. These lenses are individually made and with proper care are expected to last 6 months.
