SynergEyes launches post-surgical hybrid contact lens

SynergEyes : 25 February, 2008  (New Product)
SynergEyes has launched a hybrid contact lens designed for people who need further vision correction after undergoing refractive vision surgery.
SynergEyes PS (post-surgical) is also designed for people who have experienced some type of corneal trauma or suffer from certain degenerative vision conditions.

SynergEyes PS hybrid contact lenses combine two materials - a rigid gas permeable centre with a soft lens outer skirt. The ‘hybrid’ design bonds a ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ contact lens together resulting in a one-of-a-kind vision correction option that provides crisp, clear vision for surgically altered corneas in a comfortable, healthy contact lens.

Every year, millions of people undergo LASIK or other types of vision correction surgery to restore vision and eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. For many people the surgery is safe and effective, with few (reportedly three percent) experiencing post-operative conditions like blurry vision and/or difficulty driving at night.

Because vision correction surgery permanently alters the shape of the eye, traditional contact lenses and glasses often cannot provide the additional vision correction needed. This is why SynergEyes has developed a contact lens designed specifically to address the technical challenges of restoring vision to these patients offering them consistent, predictable vision, even at night.

'The SynergEyes PS lens has proven to be a safe, effective and comfortable lens for the restoration of post-surgical vision loss,' said Dr Edward Boshnick, OD of Miami, Forida, USA. 'It has quickly become my first choice lens for the treatment of post-surgical patients who have experienced loss of quality vision and who are now seeing clearly and comfortably with the SynergEyes PS lens.'

Until being fit with SynergEyes PS, Gabriel Meneses, a patient of Dr Boshnick, had been struggling daily with post-LASIK side effects like blurry vision, ghosting and migraines after having the surgery six years ago. His vision could not be adequately corrected with eyeglasses or other contact lenses. 'Dr Boshnick gave me the opportunity to be one of the first to try the new SynergEyes PS lens... all I can say is what a difference. As for vision quality, this lens has definitely offered me the best I've experienced so far.'

Incorporating patented HyperBond technology and HydrolEyes surface science, the SynergEyes contact lenses with FDA market clearance include SynergEyes A for naturally occurring ametropia, targeting patients with astigmatism, current gas permeable lens wearers, and patients demanding optimised vision; the SynergEyes KC for keratoconus; the SynergEyes Multifocal lens for presbyopia; and the SynergEyes PS for post-surgery and post trauma refractive errors.
