Synergeyes Duette Solution Update3:15 PM
Another Synergeyes post! Several visitors to this blog have started reading to find out more information regarding these new hybrid lenses, and because they are so new, information on the web is very limited. I just got an email from my Synergeyes rep with important new information regarding what contact lens solution is best with this lens. Note: results are based on a study performed by the Synergeyes company and independent of any company making contact lens solutions.
Revitalens Believe me, I was very surprised when I saw this result because this particular solution was being touted as the best choice for the Duette material. Apparently it adversely affected the "contact angle" of the lens, resulting in the lowest scores in wettability and comfort.
TAKE HOME POINTS
Any multi-purpose solution is safe to use with these lenses, but for best comfort and vision, your cleaning methods and solution choices can have a big effect! This is true for all contact lenses, not just the hybrid Synergeyes Duette. If you are a Duette wearer and have been having dryness issues with your lenses, try switching to Biotrue and see if there isn't an improvement. These lenses have a 6 month lifespan, so proper cleaning and hydration are essential to your comfort and this lens' optical performance.
