The SynergEyes® Hybrid Contact Lens Story
SynergEyes®, Inc. is a 21st century company, founded by a small group of industry and eye care professionals that recognized the market need for a better hybrid contact lens that combined the superior visual acuity of a rigid lens with the comfort of a soft contact lens. The revolutionary SynergEyes® hybrid contact lens with its rigid center and soft lens skirt, allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds – a stable, high oxygen permeable rigid center that delivers consistent crisp, clear vision with the all-day comfort of a soft contact lens.
In September 2005, SynergEyes® received FDA “clearance to market” for the SynergEyes® A lens for patients with hyperopia, myopia with and without astigmatism. Over the subsequent six months, the company received market clearance for five additional lens designs – the Duette™ lens for patients demanding best-in-class vision correction, the Duette™ Multifocal lens for patients with presbyopia, the SynergEyes® KC and ClearKone® lenses for patients with keratoconus, and the SynergEyes® PS lens for patients with refractive errors following corneal surgery and trauma.
The SynergEyes® family of lenses fulfills the original goal of providing a solution that addresses all vision needs while providing excellent visual acuity and all day comfort.
