Contact Lens Update: Synergeyes Duette8:57 PM
Soft contact lenses offer wonderful comfort and vision for the large majority of patients needing vision correction, but some patients (due to corneal shape or refractive error) just can't achieve satisfactory vision with a standard soft contact lenses. Rigid gas permeable (or hard) contact lenses are still available largely because of this fact. Lately I have had the privilege of working with a new lens design that combines the optical quality of a rigid contact lens with the comfort of a silicone hydrogel (or highly oxygen permeable) soft lens: the Synergeyes Duette.
