Contact Lenses

SynergEyes® Hybrid Contacts

SynergEyes® hybrid contact lenses offer the best of both worlds. The soft skirt offers all-day comfort while the breathable rigid center keeps eyes healthy and provides crisp, clear vision, even at night.

Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses

Over the last decade, there has been a rebirth of the rigid lens market with contact laboratories pouring out all kinds of gas perm designs. Their popularity is actually on the upsurge but still a long way from the popularity of soft lenses.

BiFocal Contacts

Bifocal contacts were originally designed in hard lenses materials. The newest breakthrough, January 1, 2008, is a hybrid bifocal lens called the Synergeyes lens. This lens has the best of both worlds. This lens is essentially a soft lens with a gas permeable center.

Astigmatism & Toric Lenses

Astigmatism means the front of the eye, the cornea and/or the lens within the eye is slightly bent. “Football shaped” is a commonly used analogy but is an exaggeration of the amount of bend.
